General X5 Forum (F15) / Non-Staggered Winter Setup 285/40/20
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:31:27 AM »
Hi all,

Is it ok to run a non-staggered winter setup with all corners being 284/40/R20? (Next winter of course!)  Current summer setup is staggered.

I’m looking for a set of 20” alloys to be a winter set for next year. Does anyone have a set they’re looking to part with?  Must fit F15 M50d. Cheers.

General X5 Forum (F15) / Disable Alarm Sensors
« on: March 31, 2018, 02:18:24 PM »
I can’t for the life of me get the interior sensors to disable when locking the car. I’ve tried a second click on the lock button, I’ve tried this pressing the buttons slowly, I’ve tried multiple clicks but I just can’t seem to get the sensors to disable so the dog doesn’t set the alarm off.   No matter what I do I don’t see the red indicator pause in red for 2 secs.

What on earth am I doing wrong!?!

General X5 Forum (F15) / CarPlay Issues
« on: March 19, 2018, 07:40:23 PM »
I’ve been giving CarPlay another go after not really using it much since I got the car. I appear to have an intermittent issue where i’ll Get in the car and be listening to music on another source, only for CarPlay to fire up and stop the music I’ve been playing. Going back to the original source then sees CarPlay do it again so I have to disconnect CarPlay and use idrive instead.

I was initially wondering if it was Handoff related soswitched that off on my phone, I’m now wondering if it’s due to having been playing music from the phone before getting into the car and CarPlay wants to continue the session.

Any ideas?

General X5 Forum (F15) / Activate Online Entertainment Voucher
« on: February 23, 2018, 06:03:17 PM »
I’ve been using the 1 month trial of online entertainment for Deezer and have now bought the full package. I can’t for the life of me work out how to activate the online entertainment voucher to now use the full package though. Any ideas?

General X5 Forum (F15) / Music Streaming- Who Likes What Best?
« on: February 02, 2018, 07:46:01 PM »
As per title.  I’ve tried out the following wireless options so far:

Spotify and Apple Music via Carplay
Spotify Via the iDrive ConnectedDrive App
Deezer via Online Entertainment

I quite the functionality of all of them so far, but I have to say I think I like the Deezer option the best at the moment. I’ve been with Spotify for a while now and like the way it works and integrates nicely with my home Sonos system, but pretty sure Deezer would do so nicely too. I just can’t decide if I want to pay the extra cash (ok only £40 a year) to make the switch to Deezer over Spotify.

I know there have been posts on this before, but I feel that things have really stepped up recently with these options, especially as each can be achieved wirelessly.  Anyone got any thoughts or preferences?

General X5 Forum (F15) / M Performance Side Skirts Yes or No?
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:56:57 AM »
I’m getting a Carbon Black M50d with the front and rear carbon splitter and diffusers and also black grilles and rear lip spoiler.  I’ve not opted for the Matt black M Performance side skirts, though have been umm’ing and ahh’ing about them for a while now.  What’s people’s thoughts on these? I think they look great against white, but do they look lost against a black car? I also wonder if the mix of carbon, gloss black, then the Matt black is too many variations?

Thoughts appreciated. Cheers.

General X5 Forum (F15) / M50d Now Picked Up :-)
« on: January 10, 2018, 08:52:11 PM »
Apparently my M50d has now made it to Germany & awaiting a boat to the uk.  I'm bored of all this waiting around now & just want the beast to play with! >:D  I'm banking on the weekend of the 27th now for the grand handover.

Apologies for all the comments on everyone else's posts until then, it's keeping me going until I have my own one on the drive!  :P
