Congrats Ken and welcome to the forum.

I'm sure you'll love the car.

If your that way inclined you can, once you have your VIN from the dealer, track the car's journey on the boat down here.

Be are.

so finally they throw in more options in the 328i... good.

I think extended Bluetooth and internet connectivity are standard too. I didn't pay attention to these two when I ordered mine.

can we use BMW Online Apps like UK (remote turn the air con on, remote lock/open?) or the internet function that you can browse only once the car is stopped?

For what it's worth, I am told the 335 now gets the electric rear window blind and the manual rear passenger blinds as standard.

Hi,

how is the pro nav standard? Mine definitely wasn't standard, and i ordered in mid July.

Did your dealer tell you that idrive touch will be included?

2014 doesn't mean pro nav is standard for 328i tho...you sure they didn't just throw it in as part of the deal?

Also, does the VIN show idrive touch specifically? and how do you tell?

yes i was told that there will be some changes in august production, but have not been able to source and updated specification guide. the one on the bmw website is an older one i think.

unfortunately the rrp does go up along with this tho. i have heard that the 32d now gets standard business nav. perhaps they realised that sat nav should be standard on a 60k car.

well the changes are well documented if you look on the forum for MY2014 builds, mainly it's the idrive touch and launch control, unless for some reason australian 2014 models decided to throw in professional navigation for free for the 328i...

I guess if they make the business nav standard on a 320 then pro nav on a 328 is not out of the question...

however mine is an august build and i ordered about a month later than the OP but my dealer had no idea about any 2014 changes, I was still charged for pro nav as an option.

Organised to purchase a custom build 328i on Friday. No mention was made of Nav Pro being included for free. On a personal level will be slightly miffed if it is now free as dealer made no mention of that fact when giving me a final price (inculding nav pro as an option). Would have tried to knock off another 1k+ of the final price if that was the case.
