My new G21 has Landed (Embargoed 'till 28th September ?)

Was in at my dealer earlier on today (Sorting out GAP, wheel insurances, etc. and got a nice surprise. My new G21, 320d, m-sport plus (Dravit Gray) was delivered on Friday. The bad news is that BMW won't officially release until 28th September (UK) 😕. Will just have to make do with the photos until then.

Thanks.

It appears BMW official release is on 28th and don't want it out on public roads until then. TBH, I'm not too frustrated by this and was great to get a sneak preview earlier on today.

Looking forward to seeing it all cleaned and polished up when I pick it up on 28th (early in the morning!).

Collected this afternoon. In Sunset Orange with Mocha brown interior and oak open pour wood. Was meant to have been fully charged on collection but only had 4 mile range!?

Still, on a 45 mile drive back from Reading I averaged about 65 MPG (70% motorway, 20% A roads, 10% town). Surprised that it still sticks in electric mode even when it says there is no charge left when you're pottering around town :-)

Adaptive ride is great, pretty comfortable. Really pleased with the colour, especially if you get some sun on it. Still tinkering with the HK Surround settings to work out whether it's better on or off..

Connected drive is now active on my iPhone (just had to wait an hour after entering the code). Apple CarPlay has been completely stable. I've also got Spotify which seems to work using the car's own SIM, I wonder when I'll get the bill ;-)

Apple Watch app is pretty cool :-)

Will report back in the next week on further findings.

I really wish I hadn't seen this.

I really wish I hadn't seen the Apple Watch App either!



Looks fantastic


Can have ask about the 65mpg, that's what the car says in the dash or trip computer, based on fuel it has used etc?

So if you have a 20 mile journey and you did a great job of being pre charged and use battery for 19miles of the 20, it will show you the incredible 100+ mpg figures I guess etc? Is that how it would calculate. Apologies for the newb questions.

Cracking car again, I'm very very interested in the 330e and X5 45e. Looking forward to a test drive soon.

Thanks for your comments, I'm really pleased with it so far. So 65 MPG was from the trip computer for the journey. Out of the 45 miles only 4 miles were "officially" electric but it was happy doing sub 30-mph on electric anyway even when supposedly flat.

I've just done a round trip to Swindon (about 24 miles) and had 5 miles left when I got back. It did the whole trip on electric in Hybrid Eco Pro mode, even scooting along at 60 mph for about 60% of the time. Yes it just reports 99.9 MPG for the journey. Would have been nice to have had 3 digits...

07.2019.40 - It reports no updates when I do a search.

So I did have Spotify but noticed this evening when I enabled BMW Music Service (after signing into Connected Drive in the car) that Spotify has disappeared. Not sure how to un-enable BMW Music Service!?

When you use the driving assistant do you see or have the option to select the assisted driving view?

Cracking car. Such a shame the silver isn't available in MSport. I love how sleek and simple Sport looks at the front. Very nice.

You have to set the option to override map view but yes it shows a graphic of the lanes and surrounding vehicles. Quite cool...
