I've only done 500 miles so far and just have a couple of issues:

1. Rattling from the passenger door trim. I called in to the local dealer and they said it's probably the wiring loom hitting the back of the plastic - it's booked in for a fix.

2. My humorous wake word keeps disappearing so I have to resort to the rather boring "Hello BMW".

Apart from that, very happy. Obviously I'm still running in so keeping the revs well down but it still goes like a rocket. Can't wait to see what redlining in Sport Plus does

Music from USB stick

I've found that if I use 'Hi BMW' to find a music track on my USB stick the car remembers where I left off when I return. Obviously this method is about as reliable as a Renault when using voice recognition to find an artist.

However, if I manually choose a track using the dial the car always reverts to the same 'standard' track when I return. I have to manually find and play the album I previously played.

Hi, since 5 days my app BMW connected is showing same vehicle status, it is not up-to-date (status from 1st of October). In car settings, everything seems to be activated. Any idea? Thanks.

It is notoriously unreliable. Just ignore.

I'm not sure about boomy but there's definitely a buzzy rattle from the rear panel when the bass kicks. I don't think it's the through-loading hatch, which would probably be unfixable, as it seems to stop if I press above the driver-side speaker with my finger. Hopefully the dealer will be able to sort that when they attend to the rattling passenger door panel.

Hi, about your passenger door panel rattle, does it stops when you put your arm on the armrest? Because sometimes I have a rattle on driver panel door, which stops when I press on the armrest. Thanks

Hi. Yes, it stops if the armrest is touched, either by resting an arm on it or by pressing the side with a finger.

Great, if you can give us an update when your dealer will troubleshoot this rattle to understand from where it comes. Thanks

Sure, it's booked in for a week on Tuesday so I'll report back after that
