.......... just had the old girl in for a software update to re-instate the MP3 player function they killed at the last service!

Much to their annoyance BMW UK told them they had to code the vehicle from the ground up. It's had the full hit with the CIP dated 7th April 2007 (but not sure what release that means).

My car is 3 1/2 years old now and going as strong as ever at 25,000 miles.

The new software has put MP3 back on (both single slots) and a host of other menu options have appeared.

The car appears to be pairing with other phones for bluetooth as well (even though I have a SIM card insrted in the console for the pro phone set-up)?

The screen looks a lot better in silvers and greys instead of shades of brown (yuk).

Gear changes are very slick. I-Drive menus are really fast. Voice control is quick and very accurate.

Looks good to me.

Have fun.
