I believe the answer is yes, in some countries. But the USA is not one of them. Even though it is active (for video playback) only while stationary, I think even this feature is disabled for US market vehicles.

See the global brochure at...

The DVD player does work when stationary in US vehicles, since I just tested it out in my new 535i!

It is too bad BMW HK deliberately disables this feature because of outdated regulation. US car regulation is more up-to-date.

Mine plays DVDs when stationary.I've never tried it when in motion however but I probably should because I have a few DVD-A's which I'd love to be able to play if possible.

It plays very nice while stationary. Great screen and sound...LOL..now are there any techs out there that can help us enable it to work while driving? I know when I had one installed in my daughters car they installed a switch which fooled the vehicle into thinking it was stationary. Surely BMW's can be tricked! Any help woudl be appreciated

yes. You can do that without the entertainment option however , you have to be in park to enjoy.
