Really? I've never heard that before, why do you believe that? It would make sense to have it done in a centralized place, I just assumed it would be done on the production line....

Ok, got a call from the service manager, great guy and very helpful. Here's the conclusion after they plugged the car in and called BMW Canada.

The car DOES have the power kit software as when its plugged in, it says power conversion kit. The problem is, this power kit software done at port is also what wiped out the BMW apps software (so idrive software).

So right now, you can have 1 but not the other. They are working on a new software fix to allow both but won't be due out until sometime in Nov when we all have to bring the car back in for reprogramming.

Ahhh yeahh!

But still I want apps! Not for the tweeter/facebook thing, but the ipod/genius interface looks really cool.

I wasn't told by my dealership that we needed the special snap-in adapter to use all the functions...How much more $$$ do we have to lay down? Isn't this something my dealership should give me, a small plastic adaptor...on a 60K$ car?

SO if you don't have an iPhone...does the BMW Apps even matter?

This looks more and more like Apps wasn't setup or installed at all. You have a regular iDrive. When you buy the apps add on, I was told it was two parts, software update to iDrive and the bracket in the armrest.


FYI, Steve, miss you dude.....

Cool!

The best part of my mornings...pushing the start button first thing in the morning, when the engine is dead cold and hearing the ROAR of the exhaust...

and yes it really does ROAR!

I guess it is a matter of opinion. I like it but my wife says it sounds like an old tractor until it warms up for 20 seconds or so. The neighbor also asked me if there was something wrong with my car the other morning when I started it.

Wife loves it too. First thing she commented on.

I'm a little embarrassed though in the morning...probably wake up the neighborhood!

Congrats...have a great drive tomorrow. If anyone has a picture of the BMW Individual trunk emblem that would be great. I'm not sure if I want mine installed.
