Remote start is an option. And reverse assist require the parking plus package which this car has. So, he should have reverse assist.

One doesn't need remote start with an "e". It can start the HVAC with the phone app and run it off the hybrid battery.

Looks like an unusual combination from the pictures. The car exterior looks like an MSport (exhaust, brakes) but the steering wheel has no paddles.

Any way...enjoy the car. I do mine.

Absolutely. And living in hot Arizona, if my car is going to be parked in the outside for an extended period of time in the summer, I make sure I have at least 5 miles of capacity left for the remote AC.

Am I correct in assuming the LCI won't be released to Europe until probably the 2020 calendar year?

Do you have a source for this? I've seen nothing saying the 5 series is getting remote start or reverse assist this year. BMW's list of new features sent to dealers definitely did not include either thing (at least in the US) as of a couple weeks ago.

Nope. You may be right which likely also means Park assist plus won't do straight in parking. So it could be the full iDrive 7 technology integration might not come till 2021. 2020 might be idrive 7 lite.

Damn, I was hoping you were/are right. I'm not all that concerned about park assist plus, but would really love remote start. This will be the first car I've had in 8 or 9 years without it. I don't need it often, but it's nice to have when I do

Just got email from shop.
They got "delivery stop" from BMW on my car.
Was supposed to pick it up 12th.

They don't know what's wrong and are waiting for papers from BMW about what that needs to be done, and then they have to do it.

Anyone experienced this before?
What could be wrong?

Strange thing is that I could already if I wanted have picked up the car 2 weeks ago before vacation..

Sorry to hear. Delivery Stop could be many things from software to a part/assembly problem that needs to be corrected. You'll have to wait to see what BMW releases to dealers.

If it were my car, I'd hope for a software issue that can be corrected by reprogramming car.

Good luck.

Thank you!

Just got new email now and they said that there is a connector to the high voltage battery that needed replacement.

Just hope this doesn't take to long time!

Wow, that price you paid!

The US configurator shows a picture of the parking assist pkg and it shows reverse assist. So, I'm thinking the 2020 G30 will have this feature. I suppose you'll let us know...

WOW, a $174,000 USD for a BMW 540i is insanity. Is most of that tax?
What would a Rolls Royce cost in Denmark!!! 😂
