Option Code 6NR BMW Apps

In February when it was announced that March production 3 Series would have the 6NR BMW Apps option my client asked me to add this option for his April M3 pick up. When I attempted to add the option I discovered that it was not yet available through dealerspeed, our dealer connection to all things BMW (and where we modify the cars). So I called ED and asked what I should do to ensure that the car got the option before it went into production. I was told to add 6NF Smart Phone Integration, as this was what the 6NR would replace and would ultimately be included with the new option.
Well my client stopped in tonight to go over some final numbers in anticipation for his upcoming signing date before his departure. I printed out a fresh invoice for us to go over together and verify all of the options

Question

love the suspense....where do I go to see how this story ends?? Is it true that a car ordered w/6NF a few months ago but produced in March automatically receives an upgrade to 6NR?

I'm going to guess the way the story abruptly ended it was leading to 6NR not showing on the final invoice for his client.

I do not believe 6NF automatically became 6NR without some interaction - I think one had to work it in and stay on it to add 6NR during the transition over the last several weeks.

Wow! Sorry I don't know what happened... The rest of the story simply went that the car did not switch to 6NR automatically, in fact it just kicked out 6NF and left nothing in it's place. Just a heads up to all of our clients and my fellow CA's to take another look at your cars ordered prior to the March changes to ensure that your cars are still built correctly. Lucky for us the M3 was only in 112 not 150 status! ED trip saved...whew...

Question for you Jason. Does the 6NR option come with the snap in phone adapter, or is that need to be purchased separately? Just curious what is actually included in the 259$ charged for the option.

Thank you!

You will need to purchase a seperate adaptor for your phone. BMW Apps will come with Smartphone Integration.

I hear that the BMW App is only operational when the vehicle is stopped? Can anyone confirm that? How about the smart phone integration?

That is only true for the Video playback app, which plays movies from the iPhone - need to be stopped for that to work in U.S. BMW Apps includes is a collection of current apps and others that will come. The smartphone integration is required (and included with 6NR) for some of the Apps. Some features just require the Apple cable connected.

I still don't understand the logic of that. It's still the same usb connection, so why should having the snap-in adapter matter? I'm guessing they did this so that more people would buy the smartphone integration option, which until now, was pretty much useless. Or they needed to justify charging for this option that really is just some additional software which should be part of the $2100 you spent for idrive. The only possible advantage of the snap-in connection would be providing an external antenna sginal to the phone..but that doesn't work on an iphone anyway.

Why doesn't it work on an iphone?

Some also just prefer a tidy, out-of-the-way resting spot / charging station for their phones. Not justifying the added cost, but that's my guess what BMW is banking on.

It's also a much neater integration. I personally like to avoid loose hanging wires as much as possible. The snap in adapter is a good solution.

Yep, no question the snap-in adapter is neater. Just questoining why its a requirement to use the ipod-out features (atleast that's how i understood the marketing materials).

Well..it's out of the way anyway since its inside the center console right? As for the antenna- the iphone doesn't have a pin to provide an external antenna connection as I undestand it.

Did not want to start a new thread to ask a simple cost question (posting here and in 5 series):

According to the latest ordering guide, 6NR (BMW Apps) will add 6NF (Smartphone Integration).

So, does adding 6NR increase retail cost of car by $250.00 or by $400.00 ?

New 6NR == $250.00
Old 6NF == $150.00 (No longer shows as an option on ordering guide as of 2/17)

Anyone KNOW the answer?

[FWIW, the BMW BYO does both at times Buggy software.]

Did you see this in a VIR? I saw a VIR with both listed and neither was "N/C".

Then BYO added $400 when BMW Apps was included!

Confusing!

Weird...it added 250 for me If you check BMWUSA"s build your own you'll see the same thing. Ipod integration (for $400) is required though. If you're already ponying up for the nav and the ipod they REALLY should include this at no cost.

Weird..that doesn't happen with the 3 series. Seems like it must be a mistake though.

Just saw your post, but am a little confused... I may be able to clear something up for you (if you haven't already). 6NR BMW Apps, as of March 1, 2011 production, includes the Smart Phone Integration at $250 TOTAL. So if you ordered your car prior to March 1st, this may be why you are seeing a charge for both... No worries though, your car would not have been built prior to 03/01/11 with 6NR, so when it shows up you won't be charged for both.

Jason,
I think what I was seeing on BYO site was just a bug that has been fixed.
However here is my latest VIR, dated Monday, March 14th!
