Do you fill at the same diesel station with your X5 and as your VW TDI? Maybe that's the common denominator here.

I've owned a Jetta Wagon TDI and then traded it in on my X5d a few years ago. Both...

I wonder if there are any pieces of software written that will transfer my playlists from Spotify into Apple Music?

Wrong. The first automobile application of a HUD was by Oldsmobile in the late 80s.


What does this have to do with anything? No one is arguing against this fact.

I waited about 1.5 months for a DEF tank on my X5d in the spring time. They rotated me thru a bunch of different loaners, so it wasn't a big deal really.

*warning: sorry for the dumb question* :angel:

Are BMW dealers using special "BMW-branded" alignment racks, or basically the same hardware that most competent 3rd party shops are using?

Thought I'd bump this thread.

I was driving a rental LCI X3 recently with the NBT iDrive in it and the routing is just as bad as the CIC iDrives.

If BMW knows that the G30 isn't starting production until 10/16 and we won't see them until December anyways, they should just brand them as MY18. Legally, they're not...

Longer MY16 cycle and doesn't the Euro market usually get the models first anyways? We probably won't see the G30 until late 2016 as a 2017 model.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Lexus does NOT combine Remote Touch with touchscreen at all. In ANY of their cars.

Since when does touch screen = ahead of the curve? :rofl:

Bingo. The Germans went from being behind to ahead of the curve, when it comes to in-car technology. iDrive and MMI are fantastic. Even Lexus is copying them with Remote Touch.
