To update the idrive software on any BMW,

Visit www.bmw.com/update
Next enter the last 7 digits of your VIN
Download the software (BIN file) onto a USB flash drive
Plug the flash drive into your car and navigate to settings, update software on idrive
Voila you should have the latest ver of the software

Is the F30 available in grey colour like the old E90? Pl. refer to post 81 by petrol guzzler. That grey is what I mean

The F30 completes two years. I had a quick look at how much I spent on running expenses ( diesel, service, consumables , insurance) in the second year.
The breakup:
Diesel : 18200/-
Service : 24111/-
Shampoo, 3M wash etc: 7000/-
Insurance (Zero dep+engine cover):49698/-
Total: 99009/-

Appears modest thanks to mostly short daily work commutes in the year.
Has been trouble free - just half a day at Infinity workshop spent on second service .

I did install a Blaupunkt TPMS costing 14000/- that I have not included in the above . I don't have BSI so I pay the annual service costs. The service cost was higher than last year by nearly 4000/-

So the servicing cost for your 320d is
1st year: Rs. 10,111
2nd year: Rs. 14,000

That's pretty good knowing my Vento TDi can cost Rs. 10,000 annually for servicing.

:-) unfortunately, I may have been less than clear in the update !. The service cost for the second year alone was 24111/- . The first year was just over Rs 20K . The total fuel + consumables + service + insurance for the second year close to Rs 1 lac.
