only the 2013 Active Hybrid 3, maybe we will see it in the 2014 F30s? or we may have to wait for the LCI?

Is there ever a time when BMW will stop adding new stuff so people can catch their breath? Car manufacturers are getting like cell phone manufacturers. As soon as you buy the "latest and greatest" something better comes out. Ten you're stuck in a contract for 2 to 3 years. Then when you are finally able to buy the newer model, bam! You're still one step behind.

what i don't like is the enthusiasts and those that want the latest and greatest BMW go and pre-order an F30 3-series before it even comes out. and then BMW decides to upgrade the Navi a couple months after the F30 launch. that is kinda sh!tty if you ask me.

So what? Be happy that you have a fantastic car, no need to have a grumpy face cause the new kid in school upended you at show-and-tell. Certainly don't ask engineers to stop doing their thing...

i agree with you 100%, but the timing is questionable with the 6th gen 3-series F30 coming out only 3 months ago?

Will probably have to wait for the F30 LCI. Might make it into F32 though.

Not grumpy at all. It was a quiet resignation to the fact that manufacturing technology is moving so fast we can't keep up. Though I would like to get everything in one shot. I'm trying to decide if I want to wait on the M-Sport Package. It will be weird waiting for a car that is not even on the production line yet and still not have the latest iDrive. I just find it odd. Especially since the updates are now mostly software. But such is life.

Im a little confused by this.

I've ordered my F30 328i with optional "Navigation Professional (609)".

Im in Australia.

So, is mine an old 609 or is it a new 609 - i would think that there would only be one 609, and that the old nav would have a different code?

Angry

Do you guys think we will be able to do a software update later to get this? It's really "retarded' from BMW to do this changes just months after the car came out. It would at least make a little senese if it's for the MY12 car but only for the Active Hybrid!? What are they thinking??? It's software!

It's really lame they don't offer this for every 3-series imho.
Probably because they kept the new owners in mind and they look at the Active Hybrid as a seperate model?

Seeing how it will only be available on the ActiveHybrid 3 for now, I don't see any reason to complain about it. It's not like anyone with a 328i or 335i will get it in that case

And yes, it does look more appealing, but I do not see much things that are not available on the MY2012 to be honest. It's just a bunch of better looking colors, that's basically all from what I can see in the screenies

Will the car actually operate when you're navigating that thing? Maybe Start/Stop kicks in?
