I found it confusing as well when configuring my car (2014 535i). I went with Modern line to get the interior color color I wanted with the exterior color I chose.

What were the improvements in the 2013 upgrade? The old system had so many annoyances and quirks along with inaccurate maps that there was plenty of room for improvement.

Merton, my comment was intended for the OP. As for performance, there may be some differences at the extremes on very low profile RFTs but I suspect they're overstated. In any case, RFTs are...

The system doesn't see parking blocks, on or off. IMO, it should but it doesn't and it's too bad for obvious reasons. I assume BMW has a healthy business in front bumpers and dams. Otherwise, PDC...

Why are you trouble shooting it yourself? Shouldn't BMW or whoever did the accident repairs be responsible for getting everything working?

Yay-Z, yes, of course, but you'd need a data plan for your car just like you do for your phone. Unnecessary duplication if you already own a smartphone.
Anyway, I'm sure it will all come together...

Auto, I was talking about the cost of an 3G/LTE data plan for the car, not a map subscription.
