Pictures / navigation help!

Hello everyone,

I'm back to finally post pictures. It's been sometime since I ordered the car and was supposed to meet up with it in Italy. Instead Uncle Sam had better plans for me and decided to send me to North Carolina instead. I picked up the car a week ago from Baltimore and now she's driving great here in town. Below are a few pictures.

Now for the help. I ordered my car for Europe and had European maps installed in the car. I was told once it hits America, I can go to the dealership and buy the update for the US maps. So I went and purchased the USB stick. I was just told today that the update I bought will not work for my car. It's a 2014 model. I was told it will cost $400 to buy a program from BMW to wipe my current maps clear so that the new maps can be installed. Has anyone ever had this problem? Is there any bmw garages that our owners may own who may know how to get around paying such high cost? Even the dealer mentioned this is the first time they have come across this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all your help.

Rigo

Total BS. I got my 2012 Z4 in Munich and the map is switched out when it arrives at the port along with the final detailing. I can't believe they'r trying to get $400 out of you.

I was told when I ordered it in Europe it would be an easy swap but they are telling me differently. I guess Ill call a other dealer and ask about it. Maybe they may actually be more help.

Btw, I'll make sure to put the top down so the sticker isn't seeing when I have it serviced. Lol.
