Just looking at my order in detail and one of the ďoptionsĒ is 2VC - Tyre Repair Kit, so it looks like no RFT 😎

There's so much crap on eBay that I didn't want to take the risk of something that didn't quite fit right but good to know that it fits well.

That is true, Jim. Looks like you need a trim removal tool to get the original grill out. Now where did I put mine?
Anyone know about the exhaust?

I managed without a trim removal tool, just a screwdriver and a bit of extra care.

Can't help with the exhaust on the 330i. Mine on a cold start in sport only has one exhaust open though as noticed when I've been defrosting the car recently.

Ok that proves the valve is fitted at least, as suspected. Removal of that will be job #2

Whilst waiting in eager anticipation, I've been looking at various videos and found one that I think said it had the flap open in Sport mode.

This isn't it, but sounds good to me!

Happy to not have run flats, itís a company car so if I get a puncture that the kit canít seal I just call out recovery. Iím basically doing about 25% of the miles I would normally do so not too worried.

Welcome, I am also currently using Amazon prime hd in my G20. The sound quality is excellent especially with uhd tracks although the interface is not as good as Spotify

Thatís good to know. Iím assuming that I can skip tracks, bring up search and playlists etc using the ďcarĒ controls leaving the phone on the charge pad?
Can you select tracks using voice control?
On that subject, is Alexa working yet?

Yes you get full functionality via Idrive although I have not used voice control yet so not sure about Alexa. Your phone can be anywhere within the car. It initially connects using Bluetooth and then via Wi-Fi. As I said sound quality is very good IMO. Also remember that your phone will get hot if always left on the charge pad.

That’s good to know. I’m assuming that I can skip tracks, bring up search and playlists etc using the “car” controls leaving the phone on the charge pad?

Alexa doesn't work.in UK
Both ends working, server not
Will be towards end of year, possibly with next software upgrade? Or that's what genius told me
