Very helpful description!

Order time frame question

I ordered a 2020 750 at the end of May. The sales guy said the allocation is for Week 27, which is the end of July. Since I am not a patient person I check the “Track My BMW” all of the time.

So...

That description sounds like the process on my 2016 X5, except that it did not have an option for diagonal parking.

I studied the manual for the car I have on order, and it does not mention the...

I hope I did not give you a bum steer regarding the turn signal. I am working from memory regarding a feature I loved but rarely used. I recently sold the X5, so cannot go out and try it.

I have not tried the auto park in a 7, but in my X5 you have to be signaling for a turn also IIRC. I don't use it often - after years of driving a large pickup truck you learn to not go places...

I bought the whole Autobahn package. I did not realize the monitoring only works in some modes. I will get an opportunity to check it out, but not until September when the car actually arrives.

The Vehicle Inquiry Report includes an item called “Ind. Block Date” with a value of 06/07/2019. Any ideas what that means?

I would like the massage seats, and I do use them in my truck. I’m using them today, actually, on a 700- mile trip.

Maybe I will reconsider. I had already added the ventilated seats.

Yes, the individual color can add time. I do not like black as a color for cars, though, and my wife does not like white.

I see posts saying the autobahn package is very effective - ride and handling are improved.

How long has BMW used the active rear steering? How reliable and durable is it?

M Sport Brakes on 2020 750

M Sport Brakes are $650 option on a new 2020.

Are these actually better brakes, or is this a cosmetic option?

This is a fairly heavy car, so good brakes are a big deal in an emergency.

It seems neither the Nitto or the Continental DSW06 are run-flat tires. I’d like to find an all-season run-flat, so I don’t have to get a spare.

The OEM tires were OK when they were newer.

Heh, heh - no, no new sunglasses! I know how incompatible polarized lenses and my HUD are!

It was the same in the sun and when I was in a parking garage, too. The thing was simply not displaying.

There are a lot of features that would be nice to have, if they could be coded. I asked BimmerAmerica if they could make it possible to turn the steering wheel heat on remotely, but they said no.
