Question Android Auto news

You're one of the "coding guru's" ... do you suppose that this might be code-able for previous models (with minimal hardware changes)??

X5 45e USA launch

Can't wait to see how the USA market will react.

e.g. with the greater range will 40e's start flooding the pre-owned BMW market?

G30 seat heating compared to F10

I had Multi-Contour seating in both my '13 F10 535xDrive and my '17 G30 540xDrive. I've found no discernible difference in temperatures (as measured by my bony-butt) or in speed to heat. In my G30 I...

Is this a new requirement? I have multi-contour seats in my 540xDrive (2017) and Dakota leather. Like the previous poster I disliked the quilted leather option.
