Hi,
I have an 08 335 with iDrive and the "Y-cable" for iPhone integration. I am considering an iPhone5. I've read a few posts on this, and apparently the Lightning adapter they will sell will...

For me it came down to the S5 vs the 335, both 6-sp. If I lived in a cold/snowy climate, I would have chosen the S5 (I don't think you can get a 335 x-drive 6-speed). But I chose the BMW because (1)...

For the older 3-series, the TPMS detect differential in rotation and are in the hub. For the newer ones (2008 and newer, I think), the wheels actually have pressure sensors inside the wheels.

I had the same problem and the dealer fixed it under warranty. Probably the only thing they ever fixed correctly and the first time.

I put PS2's on my 335 sport and they transformed the car, handling and ride-wise. I'm sure other tires are great too, but I chose the PS2's because they are a no-risk choice (though expensive).
