This has been replaced by BMW under the warranty.*
Sensors work perfectly now.
Other than this, really like the car.
The only other thing I have noticed is that when listening to music through the usb stick sometimes the system gets stuck and does not let me change the track via the Idrive.*
I have to change modes and go back in and then I am able to change again. This is after the usb has been read and ready to use.*
Actually also I have been advised that the sound quality via the bluetooth hands free is distorted, not sure if this is to do with my i phone 4s that I am using!! :-/
I had the same problem with the usb.
The solution was update to the last software, and replace the head unit for a new one...
The problem was in the 'go to sleep' mode of the car.
Further i've got 1 other problem, and that's the reaction speed of the rain sensor, it's terrible slow!
Thank you for your feedback as this sounds like it makes sense as its mainly a problem when ive start the vehicle and start using it.
However, how do I go about upgrading the software and changing the unit? Is this something that bmw will take ownership of?
