No remote 3d view on B7?

I took delivery of my Alpina B7 yesterday and just noticed today that remote 3d view is disabled on the Connected app. There is also no option to enable remote 3d view under Privacy settings in the car. Is this not available for the B7?

Not an expert on Alpina models (stunning vehicle by the way, enjoy that lovely beast!) but I do know that the remote 3D view was something introduced only recently so I do wonder if Alpina is working with 2017 7's and modifying them?

I certainly don't have the remote 3D view on my 2016 model but I don't know if this was only introduced in 2018 or in 2017 models.

Maybe there is another explanation to do with the reason such as electronics adaptation or something else...

Safe travels, I'd happily miss out on the remote 3D view for an Alpina!

Thank you! Yes, I'm loving it even with the remote 3D view! I think you're right. It's probably a software update that hasn't been done for the B7.

Glad you sorted it out and that the feature is indeed available. Hard to know everything when you first get the car and with all the features and toys available in these models now...

Enjoy! Any pictures of said beast for the rest of us?

Safe travels.

Love the blue colour and Alpina touches (wheels, front spoiler lip and others), that must put a smile on your face each time you use it!

Enjoy, thanks for the photo! Safe travels.
