  1. Found your helpful guide after a bit more searching and was able to change it. Also got the car to log onto internet and get traffic info. Still need to figure out how to get the car to save the details though. I went to nav-connected services to try to save the details but it didn't work. I will try again tomorrow. Now i just need to figure out how to update the maps. Thanks for your help! Am the proud owner of a Premier IS300h. Let's see how long the honeymoon period lasts :)
  2. I’m also having issues with this service. I created an account which only has email address for log on. No username. The email address is too long for the car. How can you create a user name? I don’t see the option on
  3. Servicing Costs

    The only issue with this is the long term damage by not servicing the engine at 10k. I know people with BMW's who serviced at long intervals and people who religiously serviced at 10k. All the 10k cars are fine, the ones left for longer all started burning oil after 4-5 years and for diesels were more likely to have chain issues. Sure you probably don't care if you buy new and don't keep them very long, but it's the main reason i'm very weary of older BMW's.
  4. Still humming and hawing over a is300h. Got the wife to test drive one and she liked it, although still hates the interior styling. I forgot to bring my measuring tape with me when we test drove. Does anyone have the dimensions for the boot? Specially from front to back. We regularly do long trips and take two large suitcases, each is about 50cm wide. They fit grand in our e60 520i but i'm worried they won't fit in the is300h. Here's the full size Height: 76cm, Width: 48cm, Depth: 28-33cm. Thanks for your help!
  5. Boot Size

    Fantastic thanks. The bags will squeeze in!
  6. Boot Size

    She doesn't like the center stack from the clock on down. Her view is that the designer was 'angry' that day. She is an architect so very into her details. My last three cars didn't come with a spare wheel, so doesn't bother me. Last time i got a flat (once in 10+ years of driving) i just called roadside assist. It was dark and bucketing down and no way i was getting wet changing a wheel on a dark boreen when i paid for the service! Would you know the exact dimension front to back of the boot?
  7. Boot Size

    It's a tight squeeze in ours to put them on top of each other. I know we couldn't do it in the e60 but probably because we had a buggy at the time too, this meant we had to push the bags in and there is less height at the back of the trunk.
  8. New to the forum. Considering moving from BMW e60 5 series to a lexus IS300h. Currently looking for a 2014 IS300h Luxury model to import from UK. A lot of dealers are mislabeling these. What is an easy way to tell if a is300h is a full luxury or not? I've seen a few "luxury's" with partial leather manual seats...
  9. Thanks for the responses, especially the brochure. It seems I should be looking for Premier, not luxury. There is a fully loaded Luxury up in Louth so that threw me off. Edit: double checked and it’s actually a premier in Louth.
