"tool tips" in iDrive display

I agree. Have not seen anything obscuring the display except the nanny message telling me not to use the system while driving.

F25 X3 Car Cover

I wash my car every 2 weeks or so. I keep it covered for a good week after I wash it. So, 10-14 days out of the week?

I use one and really like it. I use the BMW one specifically for the X3. Have not experienced any damage.

Rear Defogger - Time Delay off

Here in FL, the wiper helps for approximately 5 seconds, then re-fogged. Continuous defogging would be much appreciated.

X3 owners: what color is your ride?

Space grey with chestnut leather. Every time I have a valet give my car back, they compliment me on how nice the car looks.

I use the My BMW app, now. I look for the address within the app and then send it to my car. The app uses Google Maps and simplifies the send function to a button click.

What would you do, Nav or 35i?

Not sure what I would do if I did not have the headup display. Pretty sweet thing, there.

Have you tried associating the short cut keys on the stereo with individual profiles? Just a thought, stuck in the clinic with no way to test it out myself, or I would for ya.
