    I have a 2009 525d business edition within I picked up about a week ago, this was an upgrade from the 2006 520d that was my previous drive. I know its not fair to compare the cars as they are different in just about every way possible, however I have noticed a few things and also have a few...

    First post! Just got a minter of an E46 325i but there are a couple of niggles I need to sort out: 1. The BMW radio was replaced by an aftermarket one. I want to put the original back in but the previous owner cut the antenna connection and soldered a generic one on. Does the antenna lead run...

    Hoping someone can help with this, here goes; I am looking to get the Spotify app(?) on my system. I can stream over bluetooth but that has limited functionality as in it seems I can only skip tracks back or forwards, nothing else. Ideally I would like the full Spotify integration. I have a...

    Hi, New to the forum. Just about to buy an f30 touring on a 66 plate. It has the standard business nav. I've done some research on many forums and it appears that it's a relatively simple job to install and recode the new display to give a native experience that's pretty much identical to...

    Hello everyone My 318i touring, when I bought it in March, came with the cassette radio and cd changer in the boot without oem aux input. I fitted a Pioneer Head unit to be able to play music from a USB stick as my iPod got stolen from previous car a while back. This turned out to be less than...

    I have recently purchased an e46 325 I which has the original cd player, the problem is when I switch the ignition to position 1 the set just shows _AM_ on the display and will not respond to any input.

    Hello, This issue is driving me crazy! I bought a second hand BMW 120I (E87) and the car comes with a cigarette lighter and an 'AUX IN' port in-between the driver and passenger seat. When I click 'Mode' I can only select 'CD' & 'Radio' no 'AUX' option is available. I have plugged my car up to...

    Dear All I pick up my new F31 on Saturday. I checked the VIN code out of curiosity and on the website it mentions getting features coded that may not be operational as default.

    Hi Picked up a 335D Touring M Sport last Friday and loving it so far. However, as it was an 'in stock' lease, I had to take it with the standard spec which means I only have the Business Nav. My question is, is it possible to play Spotify through this using the iDrive controller to control...

    So I picked up my 2014 F31 yesterday and drove home. Last week did the same journey using my TomTom Go app on iphone. My first impressions of the Nav system are that it's complete rubbish certainly when compared to the TomTom. Firstly the map of the route does not tell you the next turn...
