New owner 3 questions!

1. Are there any USB ports for rear seat passengers to charge their phones?
2. How do you get rid of a kind of spotting on the chrome trim around one of the windows?
3. How do you stop your brake discs from having a rust coloured coating on them?

Many thanks in advance!

1. No but there is a cigarette lighter port where you can fit in an adapter at the back.
2. I donít really know I have the same problem actually, wax may fix it..?
3. I would suggest some more spirited driving and more braking although I donít use the car too much right now so mine have rust too

For 2. Try a mild polish, such as Autoglym Super Resin Polish, or toothpaste..

Ditto...available from your local BMW dealership's parts department (probably have to order it)...or you can use the 11 digit BMW part nbr and purchase from online vendor:

Many thanks in advance!

Here are my replies to your queries:

1. I have 2 USB ports in the back. If you only have a lighter socket in the back get a flat usb from Ebay for 1-2 euros.
2. MY 740 is shadow black and I have no chrome anywhere. On my work car I use Various products here: Meguiar's, Simoniz, Autoglym, Autosol.
3. CRC brake cleaner. got it from Costco.

Underneath the rear climate control, there is a place for ur phone and then underneath that there is a trim piece with a little chrome top. Press that and it will come down and reveal 2 cigarette lighter ports. Check out this link it should show it at the very bottom. https://m.atcdn.co.uk/a/media/w1024/...c47e8b4837.jpg
