And sending google map location to the car doesn't work as well. Not sure if anyone else tried.
Yeah...like another poster pointed out, spec sheet does show compass mirror delete if you got nav system. The google map location to my car works fine. I have to use the bmw assist user name (my e-mail in my case) to send a location and it show up in messages . Also has a little envelope on the nav screen

Haven't used Voice command at all.

Actually haven't even programmed the Remote Garage Opener yet...grrrrrr I need an entire day to setup the vehicle to my preference now that I have driven it for a few weeks..

What car do they give you instead? Do they stop your payments?

Brutal guys! My deal included the dealer paying my last two lease payments on my current car, so I'm still driving it and they're covering it while I wait. Last word I got was that they located another car at their sister dealership and "should" be able to deliver it to me by the end of this week. But I am skeptical, especially as you guys are getting your dates pushed back further and being told your car is "stuck" in Halifax, etc. Fingers crossed... But not holding my breath!

Oh yeah, on the compass mirror thing, it totally makes sense to delete it if you have ordered Nav.

They are listed at $61,800 CDN here. There's about 20 of them in Calgary. Well, not so much anymore, as I've bought one and I know of a few others who have as well.....

II went with 18in ....I know know..it might be bit crazy but I didnt want to go too small compared to the 19s that came with it.

I went with the BMW Replica RW-220...and I didnt have to pay 4k like I would have through the dealership!

Why does it look as though there is very little Thread Depth on those Tires?

I'll give'em a call...but I'll go with 17's ... with how the streets look like here in MTL I think it is safer...

What tires did you choose?

Do you all go with RFT's? If no, aren't you scared of getting a flat?

+1.

I'm going with 17" as well.


I believe Firstimer got Continentel Extreme Contacts or something similar.

I'm sticking with Michelin X-Ice2.

The thread..could be the angle I took the pictures at...not sure

I got Continental WinterContact TS-810S, 225/40-18.

I was told the best winter tires are the X-Ice because they are very soft but only problem is that because they are so soft (depending how you drive) they might burn out in not-so snowy winter, so I went with the Contis.
