Ladies and Gentlemen.. Thanks to some great timing and BMW's generous 0.9% CPO financing option, I am the proud owner of a new to me 2010 535i xDrive. With the cold weather package, performance package and more. My only previous dip into the German Technology pool is my summer fun car a 1991 Benz 500 SL. The car so far is all I expected. I still have 4 months and 12K miles to go on factory warranty and service. Then it is on to the 6 year 100k extended. I have been through the documentation and have figured out the iDrive and a few other tech details, but much still is to be answered. I am hoping the intelligent members of this forum will be of help.
1) BMW Assist. Not alot of details either in the manuals or on line as to what is covered during the factory warranty or how to transfer it.
2) Sirius Satellite Radio - the car is prepped for it, Stealer wants 1300 for it. My best research says it is a unit some mounting hardware and a trip to a car guy with Progman to put it in the iDrive. Am I right or wrong and is there a cheaper way to add?
3) Service Intervals and fluids.. Of course everything says go to the stealer. What is the intervals for service? What oil or filters do you use? I know it is synthetic.. But more info would be nice.
4) iPhone cable? Does the USB charge the phone as well? What are these cradles they are pushing at the dealer?
I know lots of questions.. Sorry to be a pest on my first day.. Sent from AutoGuide.com App
