Car's not coded. I just had my car in for service and the dealer told me there were no iDrive updates for my car. If there is in fact one out there, what's the magic phrase for getting it?

535D tuner

Does anyone know of a 535d tuner? I'm looking for something software related to give a little more throttle response at lower speed.

Thank you,
Robert

iPhone 6 and texts

Those of you using the iPhone 6, are you able to get texts to come up on the iDrive? Mine won't work and BMW Genius says that's the way it is with Apple.

Thank you,

I wish I could help. I had my 325e in the 1980s and I'm pretty sure that chips have advanced since I bought might.

My point is that depreciation makes no difference when determining whether to pay cash or finance a vehicle. If you think it does, go ahead and provide an example.
