You have to have some coding done to enable it. There are plenty of threads on this forum about that feature. A search of those terms should bring up a thread you can use. Good luck.

You're lucky. BMW 'adjusts' their stuff for US delivery for either legal reasons or marketing ones. I strongly believe that the adaptive headlight feature is not allowed in the US. Since it's not...

I have had good luck with Goodyear runflats, they lasted pretty long. I agree with a previous poster that said run flats, in general, get noisier as they age.

I've had 3-4 nails in different RFTs that looked to be easily fixable. When I took them in (once to the dealer, the others to Discount Tire), they checked with the tire manufacturer (I had...

I'm not being glib, but there are a lot of threads on this forum about caliper painting with some nice pictures. A search on calipers should give quite a few hits. IIRC one guy had the M sport logo...

I went to the Houston one a couple of weeks ago. I've look at the S550 somewhat, but have always preferred the looks of the 7. The nextgen could replace the S550 as the top end car of choice for...

You'll get used to it in time. I've had mine for 1.5 years, and would never buy a car without a HUD. I no longer look at it constantly, but when I do I realize my eyes are still basically on the...

In Houston, you just drove to the house where it was being held. No shuttle, valet parking. I don't think this is an open event. When I registered, I was not allowed to register for my first 2...

As I posted earlier, a friend who at the time owned a Caddy dealership suggested I buy a 750 instead of a V if I could afford it.
