iPhone and Office: Will It or Won't It?

OK, I just picked up my '15 640ixGC yesterday and the delivery guy (who, unfortunately, knew less than I did about the car) tells me that "they don't like to tell customers but you'll never be able...

Well the OEM part is not a problem, that's what the dealer will use to replace the ones that got damaged. The insurance will work at ANY BMW dealer, although I guess not at general tire shops.

Any Individual components? If not then that was quick, but not unprecedented (in my experience).

I just want to see what happens 7/28. If I get another run-around then I'm outta here.

MY 2015 M235i

Hmmm, I've been told "week 31" (albeit for a 640 ix GC). Would someone be kind enough to translate that into English? :). TIA.
