7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
The next generation G11/G12 BMW 7 Series flagship forum. Unveiled June 10th, with production starting in August the 6th generation 7 Series comes in a light weight package with extensive use of BMW i carbon fiber technology. The interior quality raises the bar with a touch screen and gesture controlled infotainment system. Exterior styling has been a sticking point with mixed reviews so far.

Make sure if you are using a Mac that the USB is formatted FAT32 and all the hidden files are deleted. There are programs that do this for you. Blue Harvest is the one I use.

Spoke with company they made some sort of oversight when I spoke with them today they say my car canít be coded with usb because of latest update that was done put a stop to coding via usb so have to do it remotely kinda makes sense only because last time I was in for service they updated my software and and updated the entire cars software as well had to get car recoded and my guy was having issues with coding sayin they changed certain things with the last update that required different codes so maybe there is some truth to what they say ???
