My 520d M-Sport - Week 38 build (updated)

Hi

Just picked up my m-sport, not had chance to take many photos yet, will do tomorrow however
Everything i have tried related to the new combox has worked, album info etc etc etc

One thing i am still fiddling with is my office as i have an iphone my only option is contacts... anyone else seen this? no messages option?

Here it is with black grills (crap photo but will delete and do better tomorrow)

On my list of things i wish i had gone for:
1. folding rear view mirrors
2. nothing else :-)

Excellent!!!! Congrats...

Quick question: are the grill glossy black and the mesh of the bumper matt black, or are both the same black?

cheers

The grills are sooooo much better in the skin (well plastic), they are the gloss black same as the window trim so it really flows well

It is a different finish to the black mesh underneath however you really don't notice

After the refinish of the wheels tomorrow will post some better pics

Very nice mate!

I have to admit white F10's are looking very good. I have seen a mineral white metallic white demo E92 at the dealer, also a very nice colour.

Congrats, happy mileage!!

Slowly some functions are coming online... the biggie i am still fighting is remote command sending from my iphone such as sound horn etc

I must say this was the first M-sport i had seen in the flesh (same as the dealer.. i was his first ) and the car is simply beautiful

One thing i wish i had spec'd... folding rear mirrors

I am also a bit pissed you know longer have the code driven imobiliser option any more

But frankly! WOW!!!

How is the handling compared to a E60 with M sport suspension, and a F10 with adaptive drive (with the toggle switch on sport and chassis ticked)?

This morning everything sprung into action I can remote find the car, open and close doors etc and access all the in car services which is sweeeeeet as BMW customer services said I wouldn't have remote locate on my build! The were wrong!!!!

As for the handling, I test drove a dh se and had an msport 3 before, for me it is vert tight and corners well for what is a huge car (huge for the UK). I would have had to have had the dh pack car for longer to really compare

Also, this car gets a lot of attention... Had to shoo off teenagers this morning on the school run

Is your impression that F10's Dynamic Handling's sport mode is similar to your F10's M-sport suspension? Or is one of them tighter?

I would say personally having not rallied my car to much yet that there is very little in it however strangely it does feel lower to the ground (probably eye tricking mind as it looks low)

Any luck with getting messages on the screen? My iPhone plugged into a combox-equipped car shows "messages" in the office section, but will not actually show any message...just a menu item.

Ditto, i can get it to show messages but only ones i send from bmw-connecteddrive.co.uk. I have no idea what bmw defines as messages

I am going to read the manual tomorrow... hope this helps me!
