    Afternoon all - hoping you can help. I have a trusty 2005 120i SE (E87) that has reliably gotten me around for years. Had a few stages of problem: iDrive kept restarting - removed bluetooth module which fixed this (3 years ago) iDrive worked intermittently - would be fine for a few weeks...

    Hi, my BMW X5 xDrive30d doesn’t seem to have the SAT NAV/Telephone option in the “screen”/menu, even though it clearly has buttons on the steering wheel as well as the control knob assigned to them. I'm not sure but I presume it may need a software update for these features to become available -...

    Hi guys, I just bought a 420iX, with 24,000 miles. Super happy with it. Anyway, there is service history in the idrive, however I have noticed the front brakes are squeaking, so I figured the front brake pads may need changing. However in the service area of the idrive, it has a green "okay"...

    I bought a 2017 520d m sport yesterday. The drive home was long but enjoyable. When it got dark It took me a while but I realised the front ambient lighting and footwell ambient lighting isn't working. It's frustrating as the car dealership is 4 hours away. Does anyone know if there is a...

    I recently tried to save a gps destination to a favourite button. It does not save and a message "can not save" appears. I tried it with several of the favourite buttons but without success. I have previously saved two destinations so not sure why it stopped working. The car is 330e 2016.

    Hi guys, I have a 2016 330d and thoroughly enjoying driving it. Unfortunately idrive is the NBT EVO ID4 model as opposed to the newer variant, but hey.. can't have everything. Due to Spotify being so crap over Bluetooth in the sense that it is only possible to flick between previous and next...
