Already have: Key fob case, CoverCraft sunscreen, all-weather mats and cargo mat, and mini-USB-C flash drives. Plus some experimental headrest pillows to block the %#&@! functionless plastic "donut holes" in the front seats. And a ChargePoint wall box installed, if that counts. And looking for M Sport pedal covers that fit.

Did you get the bmw Mats? What’s are the flash drives for? Where did you get the sun screen?

Only problem with the OEM all weather mats is they did not do like tesla and stretch across the open middles space, so that parts is still exposed front and back. I would have preferred compete side to side coverage.

WeatherTech may eventually make some, but the only thing they have right now are the trim-to-fit mats, which are a PITA....

Correct but if my limited understanding of Dr is correct if you just want to turn on recording for an entire drive you are probably going to need USB as the after the fact videos are only a minite
Max.

Thinking out loud… I think I would want to be careful of it being on BMW hard drive vs a removable - as it could work against the driver as well as sub missable evidence / material if it is recorded on a separate devise, you control the accessability - or I maybe off base as i have not received my order as of yet.

I preface by saying that my comments apply to DR in iD7 - but I assume it works the same in iD8. You can't record directly to removable media - it only records to internal storage, and you can then export videos to other media. And you can't record for a lengthy driving session - DR only records in a maximum of 40s videos (it can be less) - 20s before and 20s after an "event" automatically, or 40s total for one video when recording manually, although you can record multiple 40s videos, and it records constantly while the ignition is on (and if set to "automatic" it will physically save the recording before and/or after an impact, up to that 20s before/after limit). I haven't exported any videos, but I expect quite a large number could be stored on a 128GB removable drive, although I'm not sure to what purpose, and I'm sure the user-accessible capacity of the internal SSD is limited (my guess is less than 20GB if previous user space is an indicator, but I think the actual number of videos is limited to 10), and first-in, first-out storage for video files, although you can manually delete all or some. So DR, although useful for its intended purpose per the example I included, is not exactly the same as a dash-cam, and has limited utility beyond what it is intended to do. Hope this is helpful.
