    Hey all, I just purchased a 2015 Z4 through Carvana and then discovered that BMW graciously deactivated the old iDrive combox units.

  2. F10 M5 (2012 - 2016)
    Hello All, I just recently purchased a 2013 M5. I cannot use the BMW Assist or Connected Drive because the car is on 2G tech. BMWNA told me to call a dealer to see about an upgrade but I was told that is not possible. Has anyone been able to upgrade from 2G to 4G?

    I have a 2012 328-I hard top convertible with navigation, bluetooth and bmw assist, hard drive music. It's been interesting to find that the blue tooth died after awhile, but everything else works fine. I removed the unit, which in this car is a bit of a pain as it's located between the back...

    I have a 2012 X5 35i and the hands free stopped working. The screen just spins with "please wait". I also tried connecting to bluetooth entertainment and get the same result. As near as I can tell this is all tied into the 'combox for telematics' P/N 84109257163. Has anyone experienced this...

    I know it sounds strange. But ever since my I-level update to F010-17-003-xxx whatever, my USB audio and Bluetooth are both... wonky. For lack of a better term.
