F30 BS Ching , I found it immediately and my sales told me that the service department will contact me to repair it.

After playing with the idrive for a while, I believed that lots of features is not available in the HK version. I seen others' f30 can display the hp meter, but I can't find it in mine.

The car comes with 50+km on the meter, I have just done another 50km, engine and the transmission are smooth, power is adequate, because it is still inthe break in period, i kept the rpm under 4000, road noise and engine noise is acceptable. Hopefully, I can finish the break in within this month.

The steering wheel is much lighten than the E46 in the comfort mode.

The speaker sound is ok, nearly same as my e46 HK system.

Radio issue can be fix in 4th quarter in 2012.

My sales give me two key holders, an umbrella, and carpet as gift. But the plastic smell of the carpet is strong, and I won't use it.

The high gross black trim is very good to look at, but it is the finger print magnet.

Everything is so fine, and I love my new toy.

I wish everyone will enjoy with their F30.

Sport Displays is only available on cars with prof nav. It doesn't do much anyway, but can be coded back in (unofficially).
Other missing features in iDrive include office function & non-availability of BMW Live from factory. I think both features can be reactivated by coding the combox.

追台問題, since even the same channel have different frequency in hong kong, the firmware didn't have that function right now, upgrade will be available at the end of the year.

Fw Ching,

I can paired galaxy s2, desire hd and iphone4 with the car, two of the three (actually the car can pair with 4 devices) can provide phone function simultaneously, and I can select any one of the three for the Bluetooth audio, it is rare that the name of the song can be displayed in the morning, but not for now, I am still working on it.

I get back to my car later and will post a step by step guild for your information.

I believe that he is asking the carpet with the red strip, I found that it is available in taobao, which cost around $1500. I want to buy that too, I will check with the hkbmw, I will let you know the price.

I never try that before....but I don't suggest doing it this way.
Maybe a normal paint job, gloss black or carbon fiber car wrap will be a better idea?

you can never spray your plastic dip evenly compare to the other methods.
I think using car wrap vinyl is a solution.

Guys, check ur front seat hinges for rust. Also crawl underneath & check the parts under the seat bases are free from rust. Quite a few guys from Oz found rust on those parts when they had their cars delivered.

Yup, vinyl is a better solution. At least you can peel it off anytime.
