    sars, just checked with bmw online chat. Car is code 150 now which means in production. Scheduled for body shop.
    If you go on the config car, wireless charging is still not available, but digital key is no longer being deleted.

    When I spoke to online they said to check with my dealer so I have emailed them, but the only deletion they see on my car now is the wireless charging. Maybe we got the digital key? Might be worth checking with your dealer?

    If you don't get wireless charging, does it mean you have to connect your phone by cable to get apple carplay, or is that through bluetooth?

    It’s a different system. You don’t need wireless charging for wireless CarPlay.

    Yeah week 44 1st November.

    Checked with dealer and unfortunately confirmed that digital key is indeed deleted on my car and probably yours.
    Looks like new orders get it again though.

    Not too worried over the loss of the digital key, though would have used the wireless charging if fitted. Dealer confirmed yesterday car is in production, remind me Ori, what colour did you order?

    And you live in London, not so many beautiful open roads to enjoy the performance of your new car, I’m in The East Ridings of Yorkshire so we have an abundance of them :P

    sars,
    Misano blue. The fastest of the m40i range. ;)

    So if I’m travelling up to Yorkshire dinner is on you. ;)

    Any Michelin star restaurants that do said fish and chips?

    Ask Andy. He agrees that blue is the fastest.
