Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
The features on the My BMW App e.g. send destinations from anywhere to the sat nav, check your mileage, lock and unlock, find your vehicle, turn on AC or heating even if not plugged in. So never need to de-ice your windows ever again. Find charging stations. Actually the list is getting endless with updates. Oh, and the maps update on the sat nav even whilst driving.
