Garage List
Mmm, looks a lot more snazzy than the old version, although it still shows DAB radio as a 305 option

Just had a play ;-)

Good site - although doesnt recognise my log in details... strange.

As for DAB option payment, surely until they decide that it is a dead cert they'll keep it as a cost option... or have they decided DAB will definitely be cost free standard?

I did wonder why the links I got from the ConnectedDrive registration suddenly didn't work!

DAB isn't standard until January.

Me too. I guess that's why I didn't get a password reminder when I thought I'd just forgotten it. Ho hum...

I was mulling this over last night. How cock eyed is it that someone such as BMW can redesign a website but forget/delete any details you've entered before? So anything you've signed up for or services registered are now just gone?

I'm not bothered about the configurator, it only takes 5 minutes to fiddle with that again. But to save it you have to re-register. Now even if you enter the same details as before will the site *know* you're the same person? Or will you get two lots of marketing bumph/magazines/God knows what? What about if you can't remember what personal details you registered ie home or work? At least if I could enter my original username and password I could check that.

What brought me to this was an attempt to register my loaner for the Connected thing. I thought 'Hang on, am I still registered for my E91? How do I change that? What about when the new car comes?'

I know it sounds petty but it just seems so daft.

Seems okay. Better 360 degree and options layout. Assumes BMW finance! Daft password security for a site with fewer basic details than a phone book listing!

I liked the BMW Contract Hire quote. Double what I'm paying err... BMW.
