Seems that the 8/16 hardware actually does determine whether or not you can get it. Those whose car was built after August, 2016 can now download it from the ConnectedDrive Store if they didn't already have it from the factory.

If you buy a retro-fit FSC's you can add car play if your car has built date 7/2016

but you will lose OTA-map updates you can still manually update them over usb if you have the map data.

Makes no sense cause the hardware is there for 07.2016 build. I think the issue is the VO of car 6CP is missing and the FSC where in aug/2106 they add this from the factory. Just a theory

Gentleman: I now officially have apple CarPlay.
Bought the services via ConnectedDrive online and had to delete and add back my phone in the car.

Didn't get a chance to play too much, but I don't think it's worth $300 haha.

Happy that my M2 is now fully spec'd.

Emailed ConnectDrive and they forwarded to Genius and got the same BS as always.. you can add it as long as the car was produced after August. MY2017 built in July can't get it. But again based on all the feedback I have read seems I'm not missing out on anything!

Makes Plenty of sense they didn't add 6CP to the VO and the correct FSC for apple play while 8/2017 has this. But Like I said a million times it can be retrofitted if you really want it.

I understand that, but Canadian cars got it, so wtf?

Anyway it's irrelevant to me since my MY16 has ID4, but it still irks me.

Only nice thing to know is I could add it later on if Apple comes up with some cool new feature. Right now I agree with El Ban, from what I read not missing out on much.

totally agree it makes no sense that they add ID5 in 7/2016 with no car play and then 8/2017 its there.

Its nice to have but nothing great. Siri is used for most of the apps to do anything which is annoying

My understanding is that Apple CarPlay requires wireless, which I thought was part of the ID5 hardware?

Do the MY2016 July 2017 builds have wireless?

I have the apple CarPlay and for me personally, I rarely use it. So, if there's a way to get $300 back, I would certainly jump on it

Any word on upgrading in the UK yet? My M2's a Dec16 build with iDrive5.0 - I presume this will have the correct hardware/software?

If I log on to the connected drive website there's no mention of CarPlay, nor is it showing anything in the car. I just wondered if this is something that's going to be released as a possible upgrade in the UK?

Agreed. Do any of you know which settings will code out or disable carplay? I have too many weird issues with it and even when I just repair as bluetooth phone only it still doesn't function correctly after having paired as carplay.
