New Bmw 13 Pin Socket

So, I've just ordered my first brand new car (for me).

Specified the factory towbar - not much dearer than aftermarket, even if I fitted it myself (I've done many towbars in the past). And, with it being a new model, I won't have any concern that an aftermarket towbar will be available - although I think that the bar will be the same as the pre-facelift one. I will also get the altered fuel map for towing etc.

 

The question is, has anyone taken delivery of a recent new BMW with the factory bar, and have had the 13 pin socket fully populated?

 

I have, of course, requested that the socket is good for the caravan from the outset, but I'd like to know if anyone has had issues with charging, ATC power etc.

It won't. BMW do not produce a factory fit 13 pin electrical loom so everything works, so my brother tells me. He is a BMW nut has nothing but BMW's. His X6 did not fully work or the one before that (X6) or his X5 and so on! My Mitsubishi also did not work, it is a manufacturers issue, why they do not get it right!

Swift Elegance 480, towed by a Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian X series 6.
