  5. Idrive not loading, only logo - no CD

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi All, Anyone have any ideas what's wrong? My iDrive doesn't fully turn on. It just turns on, shows the bmw logo for a few seconds, then turns off. It will randomly do this on and off while driving. Can't play music from cd any time, and it won't eject. The little dial/knob that controls...

    E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm sorry if there's a thread out there on this subject - I did search but couldn't find anything. I own a 05/06' E90, 330i. Bought it with only 56k in 2018 and don't do many miles each year so plan to keep for a little while longer. Mechanically it's been fine other than the usual service...

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Afternoon all I've just joined here as over the weekend I became the proud owner of a 56 plate 523i. Lovely car, great nick, just wondered if it's possible to upgrade the iDrive? Would be great if I could play music through bluetooth from a phone rather than just make the calls and the colour...

    Hello, I have a 2006 E87 118i with CCC and the flip screen. I just upgraded to a 10.25" android screen (android 9.0 / 8-core Qualcomm) which is an awesome upgrade except for one little thing. The iDrive knob doesn't work if I switch to the original CCC interface. It works fine with the...
  12. playing MP3 files from USB stick

    G20 (2019 - Current)
    Gang hope all is well. I am the proud owner of a 2019 330i. Love this car, no buyer's remorse here. :) Since I've had the car, I've been unable to figure out how to get it to read any USB stick with mp3 files. BMW USA has told me to keep the MP3 files in the root directory, no sub...
  13. No sound from radio or CD or chimes.

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hoping someone that is very familiar with the CCC on these cars can chime in. Started with the iDrive rebooting randomly and then finally going to a blank screen - this was over the course of a week or two. Screen finally came back on, and everything works but the sound. NAV, climate control...

    Looking for advice in relation to my iDrive. The iDrive stopped working some months ago following intermittent issues - BMW logo shows on starting but then the screen goes blank.

  17. BMW vs Tesla software

    7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    One disappointing feature about my 2016 740i is that software updates are very few and far between. Tesla on the other hand is constantly upgrading their software and are quick to send these out to all their cars. Sounds like BMW is penny pinching, especially since they now charge a yearly...
