It's a regional thing. Here in the UK, they work together.

I'm sure you can change it with coding though if you desire.

CarPlay sucks. In my opinion, touch screens don't belong in cars - I wouldn't swap iDrive for CarPlay even if I could!

CarPlay without a touchscreen would be the worst of both worlds.

Here in the UK, we just had a stone damaged one replaced under warranty.

You might want to ask your customer relations contact why BMW UK acknowledge that its a design fault and BMW NA do not!

I've just ordered a 2015 M-Sport here in the UK and can confirm that adding 223 (Variable Damper Control) or 2VA (Adaptive Drive) deletes 704 (M-Sport Suspension). This cannot be overridden.
