6NR on US Order Sheets

Here's the first "official" (for the US) thing I've seen ref 6NR. Most dealers I talk to still have no clue what I'm referring to.

I just need a little HUD and Full Black Panel love and I'm in!!

The U.S. dealers received a Bulletin a week ago Friday with the 6NR details. It is posted on several forums here also:

Quote:
BMW ConnectedDrive: BMW Apps (6NR)

In keeping with BMW’s leadership in technological advancement, BMW is proud to announce the availability of “BMW Apps” as a single option (6NR). Coming as the next advancement in BMW’s ConnectedDrive strategy, BMW Apps will provide a new, unique way of connecting the driver, vehicle and iPhone. For the first time owners will be able to experience the latest app technology via iDrive. Please be advised that adding option 6NR to any vehicle will automatically add Smartphone Integration (6NF) without an additional charge. 6NF will no longer be available as a standalone option.
At the time of launch, BMW Apps will offer three functional areas (Apps, PlugIn, and Video Playback).
Apps will consist of the BMW Connected App and BMW Certified 3rd Party Apps. The BMW Connected App is a free package available for download at Apple’s App Store and currently includes Web Radio, Facebook and Twitter. Announcements for BMW Certified 3rd Party Apps will be forthcoming.
PlugIn allows the user to take advantage of Apple iTunes features (such as Genius, album art, compiling playlists, etc) that were previously unavailable. In essence, this function brings the look and feel of Apple’s iPod interface to the iDrive display (requires snap in adapter).
Video Playback enables the user to view any video playback from their iPhone via the iDrive display when the vehicle is stationary (requires snap in adapter).

BMW Apps will be available on all BMW vehicles as of March except for X3, X5, and X6 models, where availability will begin as of April. iPhone models supported include 3G, 3GS or 4 enabled with the “BMW Connected” app available free of charge at Apple’s App Store.
More details will be provided in the upcoming bulletin “B-1-0111-12-All-02 BMW Apps (6NR).

Not sure about the X3, as it just really went on sale as a 2011, but the X5/X6 go to MY 2012 production in April. So it may have to do with a factory changeover in SC for the new MY...

I was going to order last month but held off until this option was available. I just received a custom build order sheet from my dealer that has "6NR BMW Apps" and "6WA Instrument Cluster with extended contents" both included but the price column for each says "Blocked" (as does the total price). I've seen some speculation that the HUD might change to full color but this is still listed as "610 Head-up Display" with a price of $1,300. My CA has not heard of any changes to HUD, thinks it will will be amber color. My guys says if I sign now I can be one of the first built this way, delivery end of March or early April. I know these options will not be that pricey (in the scope of things) but still I'm hesitant to pull the trigger without the cost of what I am buying. Anyone else in same boat?

If he means completely amber, the F10 has always had some color. Anyway, this is enough for me, I'm placing an order early next week.

Thanks for the update!

Tim - you are right, didn't mean solid amber but only a couple of colors (like my outgoing X5). I saw somewhere that full color implementation may be coming to HUD.

Al - I use Jamie at BMW Peabody. Best customer service I have ever encountered.

If I had to guess, I'd say you're getting it since the other two items are now showing up on order sheets (6NR and 6WA). I'll have to check but I don't think the new HUD had a new option number, which in this case is good news.

Although more promising signs from anecdotal evidence of an upgrade path, BMW formally has been silent on this possibility and has only even let minimal info out on the production changes themselves. If a software upgrade would be offered (for a fee), it would be a new thing for BMW and undoubtedly require the 6NF option to use many of the 6NR features described. In the past, BMW has been forward thinking on providing new features during production cycle changes and has generally left previous version behind. This would be first, hopefully.
