Driving a BMW is not just the convenience of getting somewhere with comfort and delight. It’s a way of life - and when you choose to follow it, there are certain expectations lingering in the air. While BMW is pretty good at creating the right image as well as chic and classy design, it also encloses loads of cool features into the factory vehicle configuration … but keeps them locked (we all know why $$$). And that’s why there is a separate domain called BMW coding. What Is BMW Coding and Why Do People Do It? Bimmer coding is tweaking…

Wondering if your BMW has Comfort Access installed? Here are the two simplest ways to find out: 1.) Check if your exterior door handles have a few ridges on top of the handle by the lock (2). These raised lines serve as the contact point to touch when you lock the doors. 2.) Another way to see if a BMW has Comfort Access is to look up its VIN (vehicle identification number) on a website such as bmwvin.com, and checking if it has the S322A option.

You might think an audio upgrade is usually limited to upgrading the speakers, and maybe throwing in a subwoofer for extra bass. What you might not know is that the car’s amplifier is just as essential in order to achieve HiFi sound. “But what does an amplifier do exactly?” you might be thinking. The primary role of an amp is to increase the amplitude of an (audio) signal, effectively making your music louder. This doesn’t just mean higher overall volume though. For example: outputting more power to the OEM woofers, means stronger bass, without even changing your underseat woofers. In…

BMW vs Mercedes-Benz is one of the great rivalries of the motoring world. To luxury vehicle lovers what Mitsubishi vs Subaru is to '90s rally fans, and Ferrari vs Lamborghini is to supercar-obsessed children. Behind the scenes, though, BMW Group and Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler look happy to team up to fight off a greater shared threat: Uber. Though regular drivers might see ride-hailing services like Uber or Lyft as something to fall back on when you want a few drinks after work but don't want a DUI, the companies would have us believe that they post a genuine alternative…

There was a time when regular oil changes and a new set of tires once in a while was all the routine maintenance a vehicle needed. But to keep a modern, iDrive-toting BMW at its best, there's a little more to it. Whether updating your iDrive software or uploading the latest maps to the factory navigation system, keeping your BMW's iDrive up-to-date should be a regular task, just like maintaining any other part of your vehicle. In fact, BMW recommend updating your navigation system's maps twice a year, or annually at the very least. To check the map version in…

A SmartView kit from BimmerTech lets you use iOS and Android apps on your BMW's iDrive display.

Virginian BimmerTech customer and tech fanatic Greg Kashmer found a way to add iOS, Apple TV and Blu-ray functionality to his X1's factory iDrive system. And because that definitely sounds like something worth doing, we asked him to give us a step-by-step account of his journey from factory iDrive to in-car multimedia hub. My ‘Perfected’ Journey I have a 2016 BMW X1 F48 that…
