  1. New-ish member here, onto my third BMW wagon, this one is a significant step up in performance from my previous E46 318i and E91 320i - loving the 6 cylinder, diesel a bit rough sounding at low speeds but goes like the proverbial when you put your foot down in sport.
  2. idrive service history on F30

    Update - took car back to CJBMW, they had to put the key back in the key reader. Now service history is displayed. Jon - my car is ex-UK, there's only one service on there, no electronic record of PDI.
  3. idrive service history on F30

    Just a query about the idrive service history on F3x 3 series models - some of the imports (Jap / UK) I looked at had service history available as a submenu option: vehicle information > vehicle status > service requirements > service history. (although I've heard this option isn't there until the car's first service) My F31 had its first service at Coombes Johnston on Saturday - all relevant intervals now reset, but no sign of the 'service history' menu option. Can anyone with a late model F30 tell me whether this is normal for NZ new cars?
  4. Many thanks - it's off to Coombes Johnston for a service shortly so I will ask them then.
  5. Sorry to dredge up an old post. I am in the same situation (imported F31 from UK, now with kph speedo / nz maps) - wondering whether it is possible to get connecteddrive working here?
  6. E91 Climate Control Unit

    First post - looking for a little bit of help with my E91 climate control unit, has completely stopped working - no lights, no aircon / heater. Went to SD european who swapped it out for one of their second hand spares (which worked fine - looked like slightly newer model with silver rings around dial vs my all black one). However they want $495 + GST for it. If I purchase one with same part number as my (presumably) dead unit off e.g ebay should it be plug and play compatible without any coding required? Thanks in advance
