New to me 09 135I

Hi I'm Shah,
I just bought a second hand very well equipped 6 speed 135I.

The car looks great, feels very confidant and sounds lovely.
The model I have included navigation as well as some other features.
However leather and heated seats were not one of them unfortunately.

The I drive is not as cumbersome as I thought it would be and the screen is crisp and clear. And I can say the same about the handling and grip of the car.

I have to say, considering that I didn't even take the car for a test drive, I made a good choice.

My only issue, what Ipod mates best with the I drive system?

Hi,

I find the iphone work great so far, no issues. I really like the nav system so easy to use than other nav in previous car, graphics & setup so much better.

Downloading music to hard drive was so easy, no need for ipod. Can listen to music thru iphone connect too.

enjoy

Congrats on the new ride...I just got a used 2009 135i myself.

When you say it's not leather, do you mean it's leatherette or cloth? I'm still shocked that BMW would put out a ride with cloth seats.

No cloth seats in the US. Has to be ette. Any high capacity ipod classic would be perfect for music.

Downloading is fairly easy, but you're limited to downloading 8GB of music. I've got my entire music collection on a 120GB iPod mated with my '09 135. I haven't used the CD/DVD drive or the USB port in a couple of years.

I will have photos shortly.
I'm having issues with respect to the I drive connecting to my Ipod as well as my phone as well as resetting the trip computer (not i drive, rather the front display).
I've been up to my eyes in work at work and in my masters program and thus far haven't had a chance to read the owners manual.
I'm hoping it's well written and will help with these issues.

Photos will be posted shortly, and thank you for the warm welcome.
