      I’m sure all of you who have one on order, have been eagerly waiting (as of I) for Q1 24 to see what will be updated… and now the msport is available! (With 3 different packs too).

      now the question on my head. If we want to switch to the msport model with the dealer, will they have to raise a whole new order with the factory, or will they be able to trim msport with the original factory slot?

        @AKX completely agree mate bit of a kick in the teeth, they should open it up to everyone. I’m glad I’m getting it if true it’s standard now, haven’t seen it anywhere in writing yet. But I’m glad I’ve saved £750

          @Ayzee I’m happy for you tho, you’ll be chilling on motorways, did you also opt in for the M Sport Pro? Will make your experience nice and smooth.

          Also update on the speakers, now having it for 2 months yeah the HK upgrade would be nice… rather than quality it’s the volume that they’ve limited at max, sometimes wish it was a bit louder. Maybe this can be adjusted with bimmer code?

            @AKX I’ve been checking Facebook people who ordered before you and didn’t spec have it and people who ordered after too, might be worth enquiring about, nothing to lose I guess?

              Hi all,

              I’m Brand new to motability and gutted to see the I4 was introduced and removed from the scheme in March.

              I’ve spoken to a local BMW dealer today, who stated it removed as they could not cope with customer demand, they are awaiting confirmation if it will be re-introduced in July based on the new quarter and new facelift.

              What do we think of the likelihood of this returning based on past trends?

              Many thanks.

                @Ayzee Thanks for the info, is there any way to know that the car has ACC or a way to activate it if it already has it, when on cruise and there’s a car in front it doesn’t adjust the speed to slow me down or speed up automatically but is there something that needs to be turned on?

                However I did notice when out of cruise mode and on D the car is adaptive and knows to slow down if a car is in front, if not it stays rolling at high speeds.

                  Hi! On the 24th I had an update entered paintshop status 152. No update since the 24th I checked with genius they said the same, im assuming it’s already moved on from the 152 status, its been a week do you know how long roughly I’d have to wait now? Been told 15th July by BMW which I think is a joke considering the car is probably built by now…

                          @Firecape , you need to get your order number from your bmw dealer, and then use that order number with bmw genius live chat on the bmw website, they will be able to give you more specific progress on your order and estimated build/delivery date


                          @Ayzee
                          , mine is currently still 112 for build beginning June 24th and delivery around Mid July

                                  Absolutely amazing news @Ayzee ! I’m so excited for you, I know you have been waiting a long long time and remember discussing with you many months ago, so it’s about time ! :), once it gets delivered to dealership you can either wait for them to call you or drop them a call just so they acknowledge you’re eagerly waiting. Also, I believe if you want it to be registered without a green strip plate, now is the time to inform them! (I’m not sure about this though). Please drop pics or a small review after collection 🙂

                                    What is this green strip plate? Sounds ugly

                                      It’s the green marking on BEV registration plates to identify “zero” emission vehicles.

                                      They are optional though!.

                                      Please excuse spelling/typos. Apart from being a clot it turns out I had one on my cerebellum that's now causing various problems!

                                        I didn’t even get the option to remove the green marking, I was told that’s how they come so I ordered 4D plates before picking it up and changed them the same day, it was a nice lil upgrade.

                                                    Very excited for everyone. How are you all dealing with charging? Have you got an ohme set up with notability? Was it easy?

                                                      @Ryan If you have a home charger you can barely tell the difference between petrol and electric, you don’t need to charge it everyday and when you do, you can leave it in charge overnight which gives it the 6-8 hours it needs to fully charge. It has also been cheap to charge as well, I have only seen an addition of £50 a month on electric bills which is great! I used to pay 200-300 a month on petrol.

                                                      It is perfect for driving in London, maybe on road trips you’ll have to do a few stops but super fast chargers on take about 30 mins. You will definitely enjoy the ride for those waiting, also when driving in the rain this RWD car loves to slip out it’s definitely fun but also be careful out there!
