According to BMW, they have released an update for those w/ the 2013 Maps to help fix some of this (how much? no one can tell me). I will try to take mine in today and see if anything is fixed. I was...

If it would reconnect when the USB was removed, I'd be happy, however, it stays disabled for my phone. I am wondering if I have something setup correctly, or if there is an update somewhere that I'm...

Thats basically like me taking my car to BMW and telling them that the engine smokes when I drive it, and they say, don't drive it.

I would hope that there would be more of a "fix" than not using...

I can 100% confirm that the 2013 Maps are messed up and in many cases a complete waste of money. They don't seem to take you to the correct location and will deliver you to an address 1/4 mile away...

2013 Nav Pro Not Working Correctly

I typically find that my BMW's have battery warnings if they sit out in cold weather overnight. I typically dont see an issue in the garage or if they are left out overnight in the summer.

Makes sense. 10hp at that level would not likely be that noticeable, but wondered if maybe Dinan changed the power band or optimized power delivery somewhere like they did w/ 2 vs 1.

Being that...

Wow, nice feedback. I wonder if the Dinan springs will feel much different than the AC's... I would've preferred the lowered look, but I'm more interested in ride quality.

Yeah, it's an xDrive, so that is bad news... I'm gonna ask the dealer to put Dinan springs on and see how I like it. W/o sport suspension, I know that I'll really dislike the ride.
