what I don't like: there is lag in reading rpm, boost ect. I hope they work that in future.

Just wanted to share with you guys my experience in that app before buying it.
Nice feedback rusty!

You have to contact dmacpro91 for logging issue, he will figure it out.

If your looking for a gauge built for F30 and have factory looks, you have to try p3cars gauge. Very very responsive reading, instant figures directly from ECU, I have tried it in me car and I loved it too much, its the perfect mod. with Jb4 lets you monitor the boost while driving.

It reads boost psi and bar, coolant temp, intake temp after intercooler, exhaust temp, rpm, speed, 0-100km time automatic, battery voltage, and freezes max reading for 5 sec.
Its a little expensive but worth it.

ya omar, it seems you have the same issue i have. I am not sure what can be done. I thisnk i could give a try the 6NF coding and see if it works. other than that i think we are stuck with this stupid old system. maybe a retrofit will be available soonor at least thats what i hope

The bimmer retrofit is a possible solution but not the one u shared, we have to go for the latest NBT. The one that comes without combox. The problem is that it is very expensive, could reach EGP 20k+ With the customs and activation and installation and it voids the warranty unless u uninstall it every time u go do a service. Thats what stopped me

Ours is sth called radio2 and we have 6NH, what mehana & ouzzo are saying is that we can code 6NK to make it able to receive bluetooth music. Well i am willing to try.

Alternatively i have settled for a more basic solution. A product called viseoo (google it) i ordered it and waiting for it to be delivered to check the functionality

There you go

Hi everyone,
I am an Egyptian living in Dubai.
I've been following this forum for sometime now. Pretty useful discussion in here. Last month I sold my Dodge caliber and bought a new white 316i 2015 model with production date of 7 March 2014.
I wanna know if I can activate enhanced bluetooth, nav, online apps and maybe tweak it a little bit. My VIN is J612823.
I don't have front fog lights but I will add them next month. They cost around 700 dirhams from the agency without the wiring or console fit out.
Please let me know your thoughts.

Hello Nile,

Welcome to mother land forum.

I checked your vin and you can activate bluetooth music through coding, change 6NH hands free to 6NK enhanced bluetooth.
For other options you cant add nav nor apps, you have the old idrive, the new one released on 10 March 2014, which is 3 days difference.

Good news that your car have two more options:
S6ACA Intelligent emergency SOS call
S6AEA TELESERVICES TELESERVICES

Thanks Mehana. How can I start coding then? Where can i get that code token from?
The SOS function is already programmed to call Dubai police emergency services. I have also used the teleservice once and BMW dubai drivers service answered the call. It was nice and useful.
Now, say I have acquired the coding capability, would that have any effect on the warranty?

Ok guys so after doing the oil change I decided to take the OCC to clean it and here is what came out, not a lot of oil as I expected since I only made 7k since installing it but what I've seen it filtered small particles which was A LOT & I think this would have made damage on the long run, eventually I am happy about it & I would recommend it for anyone who wants a prolong engine life.
