It's Arrived :)

I just took delivery of my frozen arctic grey M40i yesterday. What a brilliant engine even at running in revs. Windows and rag top locked closed for seven days until the window film cures but no dramas as its still the rainy season here. A little disappointed that there is no blind spot monitoring fitted - BMW Thailand only offer the M40i package with what I thought were all the options, Active cruise control with stop/go, M sport diff, adaptive sport suspension etc Apple Car Play not working so back to the dealer this afternoon but, overall, very happy so far.

Thanks, Car Play now activated but sadly no blind spot monitoring. It would have been useful here in Thailand with all the motor scooters over and undertaking.

I understand your disappointment! Is it a regulatory thing? Any chance they just need to be turned on?

Maybe because they would stay on all the time and then be a distraction?

no, its not due to local regulations, my wife's Toyota C-HR has it. No logical reason other than a small cost saving for BMW Thailand. But the car has all the other options except lane departure warning. However, automatic park assist is included - not sure why anyone who buys a performance car needs auto parking!

Sounds like no 5AS (Driving Assistant)?
You probably have 5DM which I understand to also include active PDC, rear view camera with parking guidelines, reversing assistant and side sensors.
I haven't tried the parking yet but very happy with the rest.

You should be able to get a more complete equipment list with factory codes specific to your car from your dealer or one of the online VIN decoders. There's a detailed report in the factory system AIR with a vehicle pic.

Blind spot is optional here and some inventory cars are without. ACC, also optional, is almost impossible to find on an inventory car.

It also depends on the country.
Active Driving Assistant and Ext.Traffic Jam Assistant are not available in Europe due to traffic regulations.

I don't think the highest assistance tech was offered for the Z4 in any market.

When I ordered mi z4 last winter, these two options plus remote start where not available,and I was told at the dealer that they where not legal in the European market. I was very disappointed since I knew bmw offered them for some of their vehicles in other parts of the world.I ended up with all other options available but had to stay with active cruise control and no remote start.
