Heh. As a test I pulled out a Def Leppard DVD, and cranked out some classic hair metal today :)

Fun watching pour some sugar on me at 80MPH.
That was my "did it cause I could" moment.

I'm in.

BTW, how do you play video from your iPhone (4S)? I have smartphone integration, but never bought the cradle. I currently use the armrest USB directly.

In New England, we do not have the latter. We do, however, have "touchless" car washes scattered about.
In any case, tracks are involved, which is what lead to my question about the BMW manual.

Yeah, I get that.

What I don't get is the procedure I should be executing when going through an automatic car wash.

The Car Wash

I've had my 535 Msport for 9 months, and hadn't taken it to the car wash up until today. Prior to this I washed it by hand, but with winter in New England... this day was inevidable.

I've dreaded...

Siri is definitely cool, and will become amazing as it evolves.
When they integrate it with my bimmer, we'll have a powerful hands free communication device for the ride.

I couldn't agree more.
Never removed badges in my life.
I had the lame-ass Xdrive badges removed though.
They ruined the sleek profile of the car.

I did the same thing when the March build improvements became known.

Hmm, you guys put down a deposit on your purchase?
My dealer put the order in on a handshake.
Well, and a signed doc specifying the build and cost.

I'm not confusing the two.
With USB I don't get any connectivity. The car doesn't see the phone.

Bluetooth works (when paired of course) but I don't get album art or track info.

I must say that the few times that I've used the NAV, it has provided a far from ideal route.

Sure, it'll get you there *eventually*, but not without unwanted scenic routes.

They look like wagons.

I would never buy one of these.

That must have been scary as hell.
