    Morning All, Currently sat in my F11 about to attempt SAT NAV update. (Currently have 2013 version installed) Planning to buy the £69.95 2 year update from BMW connected driving assuming they just send you the file, download to USB and install to vehicle. Reading this forum I just wanted to check a couple of things. 1) Current software version is as follows MN-003.013.001 TN-003.013.001 Do I already have the latest version? I see on BMW website I can download UPD05074 My understanding is that this corresponds to versions MN-002.255.071 + TN-002.255.070 As this is older than my version, it gives me an error when trying to install the UPD05074 file via USB. 2) Has anyone done these updates using a Mac to transfer/re-format memory stick etc.? 3) What is the best size memory stick to use? 64gb/32gb... USB2.0 or USB3.0? Cheers, Dean UPDATE - Tried to download Sat Nav update from BMW connected drive but keeps saying "Payment Unsuccessful - Try again later"
  2. Had mine for two years now.

    Nice, any photos of the car? I’ve seen “yellow grommet” mentioned a few times on the forum, is this some sort of a weakness in F10 / F11?
  3. I now have the roof rails 82712347755 currently looking at the BMW bike rack to go with them and have heard that the BMW bike rack is just a Thule 591 with BMW stickers is this correct? can any Thule accessory be attached to the BMW roof rail?
  4. Thankyou, that website is very useful! It's saying that this is the part number I require 82712347755 However I have seen F11 roof rails for sale with the following numbers 82712166924 + 82712148228
  5. Evening all I have a 63 plate F11 and looking to buy the roof rails and associated bike carriers. what product code would I need? As I have found 2 different codes online i believe I have a facelift, does this make a difference?
  6. Ok so if I see a car with the B47 (190bhp) engine, that is a facelift model, and will have bluetooth audio as standard?
  7. Thankyou for the replies guys. I'm particularly interesting in knowing whether spotify has full visuals on the iDrive when connectd via the cable, as I have seen it working through bluetooth audio during a recent test drive. I was also under the impression that not all cars have bluetooth audio? Which cars do? Does LCi mean facelift? and was the facelift after 2015?
  8. Is this all through the original iPhone cable or is a “BMW Branded Cable” required? I could probably live without enhanced Bluetooth providing I can have full control of Spotify (not iTunes) through the idrive I also assume quality would be better??
  9. For those without Enhanced Bluetooth, can you connect your iPhone via the USB in the arm rest and have full album artwork, track skip/volume function through the iDrive system? Is this a cable or a cradle which is required?
  10. Thankyou everybody for the replies and information already provided. What year was the LCi? is this when the engine was changed form 184 to 190?
  11. Good Afternoon, Big fan of owners forums so have joined up early. Currently in the market for an F11 and have lots of questions. Looking for some advice and hoping to be an active contributor to the forum in the future. Budget £20,000 Desired spec - 520d - M Sport Plus - >2013 - <50,000 miles - Harman Kardon speakers - Pro Nav - Heated Seats - Xenons - Auto w/ Steering wheel controls - Enhanced Bluetooth (audio streaming) "Nice to have" but not essential - Reverse Camera - Pano Roof - 530d? / 535d? So I have a couple of questions 1) Does M-Sport plus include the following - (Xenons, Heated Seats, Auto w/steering wheel controls, Harman Kardon, Pro Nav) 2) I've found cars with the perfect spec but fall at the last hurdle (No Enhanced Bluetooth), can this be "coded" or does it require retro-fitting with new components? 3) Common problems/service intervals for the F11? 4) Opinions of the 520d vs 530d vs 535d? 5) Just some general users opinions and thoughts on the F11? 6) Would you buy from BMW dealer, or other? Much appreciated! Looking forward to the site!
