iPhone 6 and messages?

I have found that messages are not showing up on the message screen when sent to my phone with the iPhone 6. Worked fine with my 5s. Anyone else having this issue.

It has a June 2011 build date. I would imagine that would have to towards the end of 2011 production?

2011 vs. 2012 535

Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted. My 2012 has been a rock and probably the most reliable and enjoyable BMW I have owned.

A friend of mine texted me last night and asked if he should have...

I paid $1100 on delivery in Decmeber 2011. I think I am on my 8th new tire, so it has paid for itself. It has definitely gone up in price as these companies are losing their shirts in the Northeast...

Honestly, just to reiterrate, I actually didn't even know I was in a 528, thought it was a 535 until I looked at the key tag. The only caveat is I wonder what it feels like on an x-drive car? I am...

2013 528 Loaner Observations

I was always told I could buy extra miles at a discounted price within the first year. After that all bets are off.

Thanks for the insight. The E66 was "owned" and not leased. From memory, they gave me $20k and I owed $23k, so there is about $3k baked in (maybe more, can't remember exactly). With regard to...

I guess the bottom line is that the GT is really not a 5-series and it really should not be compared to "our cars" (F10's). Different frame and build platform. It's really a 7-series. So the GT...

Thanks. It kind of stinks you have to change it to pop-up vs. banner to get it to show. Banner is kind of annoying for texts while using the phone.
