Connected Drive?

Okay 6Fans, I need your assistance with this one. I am a proud owner of a 2013 650 convertible. I was just at BMW of Scottsdale and on both a 2013 M6 convert and 650 GC that they were prepping for delivery both cars had on their windshield the logo "Connected Drive." The dealership says that if one has BMW Apps or HUD your car would have this. The logo is located opposed the rear view mirror facing out of the windshield. I have HUD and BMW Apps and I do not have this "Connected Drive." Can anyone tell me what I am missing? Thanks.

I think you're just missing a sticker. Connected Drive encompasses Apps, BMW Assist, etc. My understanding is that it is purely a marketing thing, not an option you're missing out on. My guess is that your car doesn't have it because it isn't an M6 or GC, both of which are new for 2013. BMW likes doing screwy stuff, and I think it's just one of those things that varies among the cars even though they are all within the 6 Series family. I noticed that sticker appearing on several M6s and GCs on cars at various shows, but I've never seen it on a 650i coupe or convertible.

Might also be related to the new iDrive version that's in the M6 built since Jul but not in the standard 650 coupe/vert until March '13 builds.

That really burns me- new Idrive standard in the M6, all 5 & 7 series since July,
but as I want a 650, must wait until March '13 - makes no sense.

Tell me about it. I think I'm going with a '13 650 vs the M6 for a number of reasons and the new iDrive will delay my purchase from late Dec for a late March delivery by at least a couple on months to be sure to get the new system.
