Hi! 1st BMW 1st GT

Hi All,

I have just taken delivery of my new BMW facelift 320D M sport GT.











I hope you like it

I have a few questions if you don't mind.

the build date was week October 2016, and its a facelift model with professional satnav, does mean I have ID5?

If So how do I can apple car play? Can I get it for free from BMW? as I don't think I have it currently.

I have active pedestrian safety what is this?

I am sure I will have more....

Congratulations and welcome to the club as far as I know you have id5.0, about the apple car play I have no idea DD The active ped.safety is an autonomous braking system which detects pedestrians at the front with the sensor in your windshield and sends you a warning, if you don't react it will apply the brakes anyway. This system only works at low speeds and you can turn it off anytime.

You should be able to activate CarPlay via coding, search the coding section of these forums.

I have but can't find anything.

I spoke to BMW dealer and who said it's not available with out the enhanced Bluetooth option as it used the wifi connection, is that a load of bull?

You need to get an FSC code for your car and then code both Enhanced BT and CarPlay. Contact shawnsheridan if he can guide you. Or ask Patrys@BimmerTech or Nelson@BimmerTech for a price quote.

Congrats but I've always heard you shouldn't buy a German car that was manufactured during the month of October lol.

I see

So far so good...

just trying to get my seating position spot on, I have been used to driving a ford smax which had a high seating position and loads of leg room need the pedals.

The bemmer has absolutely the bare min space required in the pedals area, left foot on rest and other on a pedal, no place to rest the right foot when your cursing with CC on.

'Rest' it on the gas pedal. Back in the days of mechanical CC the gas pedal would move as the engine was given more or less fuel, but with electronic CC the pedal doesn't move. I use my CC regularly, never found it the least bit uncomfortable leaving my foot on the gas pedal.
