What's the build on the car? Do you have any packages listed on the sticker?

You essentially can't configure a 330i without at least the convenience package even as an M-Sport version, and...

Just looked out of curiosity. Unless the car has no packages, SiriusXM is in all the 2020 option packages that I could see. It should be listed on your sticker.

OP, its a band option under...

There are a number of Level 2 chargers on the market that can bring your charge time down to around 2 hours. I have one from Clipper Creek that's been great. They're 220-240V, and can either be hard...

I was contemplating this for my wife's X1 which isn't currently getting driven much. I have an older CTEK conditioner, but CTEK lists totally different models for AGM batteries. I bought my current...

I'm a little surprised. I looked at all the packages on the 2020 G20 and wireless charging is a separate option (same as on my F30), but BMW is notorious for having completely different trim elements...

On the G20 it looks like you need the 6NW option for wireless charging. Do you have the window sticker? It's apparently a separate option.

If you don't have the window sticker, you can sign onto...

That looks like one of the symbols for wireless charging.

Does the phone charge when you put it there? That's the easiest way to know, without downloading the manual.

I think that's the more common usage. It's also a vowel, roughly equivalent to "oe" in Danish, Faoroese (which I think are Danish or settled by the Danish) and Norwegian.

I don't think I have...

Just saw your question on oyster leather. We had oyster in my wife's 228i (different leather, but could be the same concern). We found it was horrible with dye transfer, especially if you wear jeans...

We picked ours up on July 29. The fix was applied at the VDC in Baltimore before shipping to the dealership. They did tell me the parts were shipping slower to dealerships.

Yeah. I hear you. It's one of the reasons I'd seriously look at MB, even though I'm not fond of the C-class at all. The automatic tilt away steering wheel and easy entry/exit features start getting...

Yes. It's the reason I have a 330e instead of another Prius. If the Model 3 had been closer to release, I might well have bought one. If it handles well, that's a bonus.
