They'll still got a little tweaking to do with this. Currently, the configurator won't allow one to add the Sport Automatic Transmission with the M-Sport Package, nor does it allow one to add the Premium Package with the Cold Weather Package.

I was able to add the Sport Auto within the M Sport line... maybe they already addressed it

Question is there a difference between Sport Seats and M-Sport Seats? I noticed it on the configurator. Is there any emblem or whatever on the M-Sport seats? or is it just another marketing term and really no difference?

Nav is different on the ActiveHybrid 3 vs the 335i/328i, as expected (http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=691510)

Sad..


Top: ActiveHybrid 3
Bottom: 328i/335i

Kind of pissy about it, but really that just means it'll be another $1500 retrofit down the line to upgrade it. And by down the line, I mean in 3 months.. When the car is barely broken in.........

Yay for our 2013s having a 6 year old navigation system.

Oh well. At least it's a solution you can just throw money at to fix! :s

There's always the very slight chance that they haven't had an opportunity to update the interior photography on the configurator page, but I doubt it. Especially with the press release outlining that the new nav is specifically on the ActiveHybrid 3, and that's how it matches up on the configurator.

We really won't know until the 2013s start getting delivered.

I think you can. I was able to do so by selecting premium package first and then the cold weather package. The glitch is that they added the leather seating option in both packages when it should only be on the premium package option.

I think there is a slight glitch for the premium package/cold weather package but I was able to get around it by adding the premium package first and then the cold weather package. There also seems to be a checkbox inside the cold weather package for the premium package. I think the glitch is because the leather options are in both the cold weather package and the premium package when it should be in the premium package.

The sport automatic was default for me on the M-sport package. I had to change out to the manual transmission.

I agree. All is not lost. It is certainly odd that cars rolling off the same production line IN the same series won't have the same Nav. What are they gaining or loosing by holding it back unless there are design mods that the Active 3 has that allows it to have the new nav? As far as it looks to me it's just software. I'm not sure why the hardware would have to be different.

BMW released information regarding the July production changes as follows:

Starting as of July 2012 production, the next generation Navigation Professional system (609) will be available on the 5 Series Sedan, 5 Series Gran Turismo, 7 Series Sedan and ActiveHybrid 3.

The "current generation" Nav Professional System is what has been in use in the E9x since MY 2008.

● For the 2013 328i & 335i Sedan, BMW still uses the "current generation" Nav Professional System.
● For the 2013 ActiveHybrid 3 Sedan, BMW will use the "next generation" Nav Professional System.

Both of these models are in the same series, class, and roll off the same production line. I personally find the situation to be absurd, given the $3,100 price tag.

(Yes, I understand, technology changes, things upgrade over time, but the same line, same car, unacceptable. Just my opinion.)


This is somewhat minor for people who aren't very tech oriented with their BMWs, as it is more of a performance upgrade/visual update (faster processor, higher resolution, updated maps, etc.) But if you're a techie and can pinpoint and articulate these differences, it's quite a b!tch to be without said update.

Specifically,

Intel processor 1.3Ghz vs Renesas 600Mhz
1Gb RAM vs 512Mb
8Gb flash vs 512Mb
Nvidia graphics vs Fujitsu
200Gb harddisk vs 80Gb
New system has wireless chip inside. That opens up new possibilities.


From a tech standpoint, this is a very substantial, major upgrade.

This is what bothers me so much about the situation. Absolutely ridiculous. I'm sure there's some "logic" behind it... I'd really love to hear it.

There are very significant hardware updates coming alongside the "next generation" Nav Professional System. Including a high-end (with regards to the automotive world, anyway) nvidia graphics chip.

and the "logic" is to use all the "leftovers" on our slightly older/cheaper model than active3...
