6 things you may not know about the F56:


1. The LED headlights come complete with heat sinks and cooling fans.
2. With the Media/navigation XL you can view two different maps side by side (e.g. 3D satellite view and standard map view at different scales). You also get buildings in 3D in places such as central London.
3. The B-pillars are wider than those on the R56.
4. It's possible to fit two bedside cabinets in the boot, when the floor is lowered and the rear seats are angled in their most upright position, and yes with the boot shut.
5. You don't need to specify the Harmon Kardon system to get big woofers under the front seats.
6. It's possible to play videos in the car - a number of different file formats work.


What else can others share?! :)

I've got a couple:-

iPhone works fine with the apple cable, you don't need the y cable pictured in the accessory brochure

Steering wheel controls don't work for track selection if you play music via spottily on your smart phone, you have to use the stereo controls instead

Exhaust pops and burbles best when warm and in sport mode

40mpg + is quite easy to achieve, surprisingly

Can't wait to be able to drive again. I'm going to kill that **** fish.


I CAN use my steering wheel controls to move tracks in spotify. It's slow and you cannot change to a different album or playlist though.I can definitely move fwd and back tho.

Visual boost DOES have subwoofers under the front seats.


You can make the air vents blow hot air on both hands as you steer in the winter.

I was told that visual boost adds a pair of speakers and we were disappointed that we didn't add this option but my wife's cooper has speakers under the seats and two in the doors (non in the rear though) and it's that basic radio option.
BTW I've put some photos in the garage section.
Mine due to collect in the next week.
