    Hello –

    Can I get advice….I ordered my 320i sport in July and the build system had all the updates including on the description of the live cockpit plus that it would have the new 5’1 inch digital dash, idrive 7 and hey bmw + android auto…

    I collected my car end of September and it didnt have the new dash….so I was already disappointed and then over the last week of driving I’ve realised it’s running idrive 6, no hey bmw assistant and no android AUTO…but it’s got the flappy padels which was part of the new update….I’ve emailed the salesman and informed motability…they have said they have my back and expect the dealer to look after me….but the salesman said he would have to look and see if when I ordered the car I made a request for idrive 7…..obviously that is a part of the car you cant change and so there was no need for me to say anything….but I expected what I ordered and what was on the build system the day we went through the order….like I specced the black leather with orange stitching + mineral white paint and I went with the 19imch wheels…..and on that order was the description for the new dash and idrive……

    How to I get this sorted out?

     

    Any advice?

    Get onto mobility again tell them the dealer is fobbing you off and you want to reject the car.
    I can’t believe your dealer is just trying to force you to except it when it’s not the spec you ordered.
    Ask mobility for a case manager to deal with it on your behalf do to the stress.

    Hi, I managed to get some 3 series updated cockpit picture along with the media system. As you can see on the picture, the map also comes on the cockpit when you enter a destination which is pretty cool.

    I actually prefer it over the professional cockpit like in the gran coupe as this has got best of both- cool dials and the map in between. Let me know what your opinion is about the cockpit. PS

    @PS, that looks fantastic! I love how the map in the cluster is in the middle like the LC Professional. The analogues are a little bit dark in the night but nonetheless the map gives it a lively feeling. Also, love the classic BMW orange ambience!

    Thank you for sharing. Any chance you can post one from the back seat, like of the whole front. If you can, otherwise don’t push yourself as you get pains.

    That dash is far nicer than the MSport one. I emailed my dealer earlier in the week to make sure that mine has it but as per usual have heard nothing back.

    Sorry all for the picture quality. My iPhone camera isn’t all the best. Hope this all helps for those waiting for their 3 series. PS

    Thank you for posting @PS, it looks absolutely stunning! The blue illumination combined with the orange gives it really good ambience, especially from the back seat! I cannot wait to collect mine in a few weeks time. Enjoy!!

    It would be interesting to get a comparison with the vag digital cockpit.

    Can you enlarge the sat nav map between the dials like on vag cockpit i used this a lot on our Tiguan.

    Hi all, for those who are going to receive their bmw 3 series, it would be nice to share some pictures of the exterior. What colour has everyone gone for? I have the classic black sapphire. PS

    Nice choice Elliot. Is it the saloon or touring. 318i or 320i. PS
