Re: Manual’s section

So, if I understand correctly if you have this problem, if say accelerating hard and you change from say 2nd to 3rd, the moment you disengage 2nd, and nudge into 3rd the revs rise before the gear is engaged and you have lifted the clutch? What if you slow things down, and before you nudge into 3rd ...

Re: touch screen ?

I'm hoping to have an Android Auto solution available soon that will allow integration of carplay and Android Auto on all versions of idrive. I have units in beta test at the moment, info to follow soon. Carplay activation available for all iDrive 5 and 6 units from £99 - Waze and Google maps will ...

Re: Manual’s section

I can't actually tell if you're being sarcastic? If so, not helpful. Do you really think we're all keeping our foot buried on the throttle when changing gear? Maybe you don't have the software version that exhibits this behaviour, but basically it's trying to rev match on upshifts and artificially h...

Re: New order and some help please

No option adds as much value as it costs. For what it's worth agree with the comment above that if you 're on the fence just do it. But, having said that, business Nav has all the main features mentioned above, i.e. full voice control, RTTI, connected services etc. In fact the actual navigation soft...

Re: New order and some help please

That's exactly the same spec as my car. *edit* except mines a manual. It's down to personal preference, but I was torn on whether to have pro nav or not as well. For many on here it's a 'must have', but honestly, I wasn't that bothered then and I'm not that bothered now. Obviously it's better in som...

Re: Manual’s section

If you look back at the link I posted on the last page, the Germans are saying that the latest update fixes the issue. Think there's only one person confirmed so far though and confusion over software versions etc.

Re: Manual’s section

I don't think there's anything you can really do, other than be very specific with them when you take the car in and explain the issues that we're experiencing. If you wanted to go belt and braces you could see if you could take one of their techs out before and after. It's a real problem and it's n...

Re: Manual’s section

Exactly, it's something to do with the rev matching component of the software IMO, it's not anything to do with 'lag'. In any case, no matter how you describe the issue, it's a software defect.

The thread is here:

Was planning on a friendly google translate introduction to link this thread to theirs but have been very busy.

Definitely the same issue.

Does this not effectively keep a manual on boost changing? That's a good thing!
Like an auto.
No, it's not a good thing because you'll end up knackering the clutch!

Re: Manual’s section

I've noticed the same thing on my 2018 M140. During up shifts above 4.5k or so the car auto-blips the throttle over revving the car. The car is with BMW at the moment but am awaiting an update. Tried in all modes and definitely a problem in comfort, sport and sport +. Its the laggy fly by wire thro...

Re: M140i turbo upgrade.

Ok fair enough, if you know what you're after :-) I was only asking because years ago I bolted a shiny hybrid onto a road car expecting it to be better and ended up disappointed! Good luck!

Re: M140i turbo upgrade.

I'm not an expert but have had some experience of hybrid turbos about 20 years ago!! My immediate question is, why are you looking at a hybrid? What are you hoping to achieve? I might be way out of the loop, but in my day a hybrid was just a larger compressor or cut back turbine etc. If you're after...

Re: Manual’s section

Thanks for the reply. I think it's a software problem. I don't know if it was introduced with the last update but it's clearly artificial and I didn't notice it before. The last update I had enabled rev matching on downshifts when skipping gears, which 100% isn't how it behaved previously. I noticed...

Re: Manual’s section

Someone else mentioned on another thread that they find the car is holding onto the revs when they upshift? Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the person or the thread! Is anyone else getting this and did they get a resolution? I'm actually liking the rev matching when downshifting through t...
