Re: To Change or Not To Change

Tell them you will go for it if they do zero deposit and same monthlies plus the service plan. :wink: Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk Ha tried that one first and no dice! Why would you swap your car for basically the same car, paying £1500 and an extra £13pm for the privilege, whilst locking yo...

Re: To Change or Not To Change

Fair point raised there. I'm not sure if I'd want another one after this either, as great as it is I'd potentially be after something bigger when it's up.

Already owning one aside, I didn't think the deal was too bad

Re: To Change or Not To Change

I'm 22 months into the current PCP. Settlement figure on a March settlement which would be about £19k, which is what they offered for mine in March, so I'd effectively be handing the car back and the APR was the same as now (4.9%) but over 4 years. Only reason I mentioned the GFV was that in 13 mont...

To Change or Not To Change

Hi All Went into BMW today for my first service on my M140i and whilst in there I followed up a recent chat with a sales person about swapping mine in for a new one. I'm currently on a 3 year/10k mile deal which is working out at £387/month for the spec in my sig. I was never planning on changing th...

Re: M140 new software update horrible drive

Eugh mines due to go in on Friday for service and the local dealer isn't great at obeying instructions. Don't mind a smoother gearbox but I'd be annoyed if it loses some of the theatre you get in sports and sport+ when it comes out.

Reminds me, I need to reset iDrive back to v5 before it goes in

No OTA Map Updates

Hi All Is anyone having issues getting OTA map updates? My 2017 M140i is still stuck in 2017-3 version and I can't find any way to force it to update. Not sure whether switching to idrive6_lite has hindered this but that's been on since the day I got the car and had no issues with last years updates...

Re: Esys Issue

I found an older version of the premium launcher which seemed to do the trick (it required .net 3.5 to be installed before it would work on my win 10 laptop)

Esys Issue

Hi All

I seem to be having an issue with installing e-sys. Downloaded and installed the program, extracted the psdzdata lite to C:\Data\psdzdata and installed the premium launcher but I keep being asked to generate a code and it's got stuck on F999. Any ideas?

Re: Replacement Glass

Cheers guys. Effectively wasted 3 days as direct line never mentioned guaranteeing they'd sort any sensor issues out which occur as part of the replacement. If had said that would have been done already. Be glad when she's got it fixed so I can get my M140 back!

Replacement Glass

Hi All Misses has got a crack in the windscreen. Rang autoglass to get it sorted and requested oem glass. This has been rejected by her insurance (direct line) and if she wants oem it's going to cost a fortune. Is this going to affect any warranties with the car or will it be ok with the pilkinton g...

Re: Speed limit warning

Optional extra which is exactly the point made by Plant. I know. I was responding to GeeDee, making a point similar to yours later in your post. It's frustrating that it is an optional extra (I can understand the camera) but considering the live data these pro nav systems get there's no reason for ...
