I've updated the maps in my 2013 135i, and used the glove box port every time. It normally takes a long time for the flash drive to be recognized. Do you have a USB drive with an LED that flashed to...

Looks like it might be the same screen as the E85/86 Z4. I seem to remember there being screws in the back, under the trim piece. I don't have the Z4 anymore otherwise I'd try it for you.

Update at the dealer wiped my changes again. I'm now i-level E89X-16-07-507.
I think this corresponds to ISTA-P 3.59.5 (but not 100% sure).
Is the SP Daten available for this?

My 2013 has Bluetooth audio, but I think it was part of the Technology Package. If you don't have that option, you won't have bluetooth audio, just telephone.
