What size is the idrive screen in these? Seems small but maybe because I've only seen it in the larger cars

I live in Pickering, so Durham BMW is the closest dealer to me. My experience might be anecdotal, but I hated the service from Endras. I've bought 4 BMWs and a mini from BMW Toronto. Unless it's more than just a name change to BMW Durham, they won't get my new car business or service business.

We don't have the installation guide for this chassis specifically, but you can follow the guide for the G8x chassis for reference.

Disappointed with the ambient lighting not stretching across the trim.

Yes it does! Purple looks more special. But black is also a great color for the car.

That face with those ordinary headlights doesnt say BMW at all.

In the night forget about it… Anything but BMW…

The taillights are another total failure… really ugly

The rear looks better in black. Wish they gave it the same taillight design as the X3 LCI. The plastic black surround just doesn't make sense.

I so wish for a manual in this car.

Not trying to start an auto vs. manual debate, but a lot of the cars I would consider buying are automatically nixed due to no manual. BMW only uses manuals for the M cars only now. Come on BMW bring a manual to this car.

I'm waiting for the M2 for that reason alone. I guess that's a win for BMW.

Pretty sure if you look closely at the corner of the dash you can see light reflected off the panel below the dash strip - in other words there's a concealed light that casts downwards.

It's so bright where he's filming and he's moved the camera so quickly I couldn't be sure, but thought I caught a flash of the lilac - would have been better with some of the other colours he tried too.
