Ditto on Jon! I've bought numerous cars from him over the past 15 years. He got me a coveted M235i allocation for ED last spring when no other dealer could get one! Jon is THE man!!!

Interesting about the Nav. When I picked up our 2014 M235i in July, the European maps were pre-loaded in the system and we did not get a USB drive. That was a change...

Thanks for reporting back here. With all due respect to the "genius", why do my other BMWs give me messaging with my iPhone (2013 335i, 2014 M235i, 2014 435i). Makes no sense why the i3 would not...

Ditto on Four Points. It's very close and you can keep your car parked at the Welt securely for free.

I don't recommend this property in warm weather months since they don't have AC.

I don't have much hope for the "genius". When I was taking delivery of my i3, it was painfully clear to me (and my CA) that I knew more about the car than the genius!
