Re: Limited Slip Differential working with traction control?

O have the mperformance diff and it does cut in before the traction in comfort with traction fully enabled. The reason i got on was in cold temps I got cheesed off with the left right tugging of the traction control not letting up when trying to accelerate. I'm happy with the more consistent behavio...

Re: Music Import 225XE

No storage then by the look of it, I'd assumed it would be the same as my 140, glad i didn't spec it for the wife's.

There's on board storage if you have the pro nav. Regardless, whilst in usb, Albums are in the search menu, folders are at the bottom of the search menu.

Re: First BMW F46

Welcome to the club, I've recently picked up a 220d xdrive to go with my m140i. Spotify is usually dependent on the phone in question, the wife's sony is a bit if a pain compared to the iphones. Rolling back the Bluetooth software to an earlier version has worked for others.

Re: LCI details

Picked up the wife's 220d xd on Friday, flamenco red with oyster and wood looks great to me. Not a punchy as I thought it would be but this is probably due to my daily drive being a 140. Dashboard is a lot nicer than the 1. Make sure you add the spare wheel and roof bars if you want to use a roof ra...

Re: Finance Question

There are a few options, but all will have a financial impact which might be lessened by contacting BMWFS and arranging for a new monthly payment which more accurately reflects your real world usage. 1. If you hand the car back at the end of the agreement, the over-mileage charge mentioned by JCM14...
