Re: What kind of range are you getting?

Too cold to even bother with efficiency figures at the moment for me as doing very short journeys biggest thing is the heating the cabin then almost at destination. On longer ones the heat pump does seem to help. Remote climate and fact it actually warms the steering wheel to set levels in advance a...

Re: 360 Camera Functionality

When the top down 360 view is displayed look carefully at the screen ( when you’re stopped safely) and you will see camera icons around the image of the car onscreen .Tap on whatever camera icon you want to see the different angles like maybe the kerb view . Could be easier to see the icons for sure...

Re: 360 deg camera option

Without the technology plus pack your car doesn’t have the cameras fitted in the wing mirrors etc so can’t be remotely upgraded. Would be too expensive to upgrade which is I guess will be very annoying and poor of the dealer to not match your requirements. Mine is an MSport with adaptive headlights ...

Re: 360 deg camera option

Check your my BMW app and look at the Connected Drive Services option which will show what addition options you can add. I would do it now as Black Friday 20% discounts are available or at least they are in UK. I just added Safety Camera alerts for example and could save a lot on the driving assista...

Re: BMW iX1 (U11) or iX3 (G08)?

If AWD doesn't matter to you the ix3 is bigger and all reviews comment on the handling.

I would look hard at the overall cost in terms of ...

Re: Hi folks

I can't speak for range but the car is amazing and rides really well on the 20 inch wheels as I had concerns about that having in driven an Ix1 with the smaller ones. The steering is numb but the chassis feel is not although the front wheel drive bias is shame I suppose if nit picking. In terms of p...

Hi folks

I’m due to pick up my iX1 on Saturday. After a lot of research the IX1 just stood out compared with the two German brands especially the technology and overall quality.
