Just picked up X5 40d M Sport - Never had a BMW

Wed May 17, 2017 4:06 pm

Hi all I've just collected my X5 40d M Sport, never had a BMW so Idrive is brand new. Any must do's with Idrive? anything really cool to show off with? Is there an App or anything I need for my phone to connect to? any other cool advice would be great - thanks
If I'd known I was going to be this thirsty this morning I'd have drunk more last night!

What year is your car?  There are sone idrive differences depending on the year. You can download the BMW connect app which allows for some remote features depending on the year of the car and its options. Do you have the BMW Apps option?
