I'm very sorry the OP has had these serious issues. However, I think trying to keep any car for 100K miles and beyond is like playing Russian roulette. In all my years of car owning, since my first...

Not sure what you mean. The "stupid" lines were introduced with the LCI, or even a year before. I hate the lines -- they need to go. The configurator has issues -- I cannot select my current...

Actually, the lever always returns to the center "neutral" position, even after you push it all the way to engage the continuous blinker, "past the click". Whatever, my friend :).

Just to note again, you can press the lever to the detent position (before the "click") in either direction to cancel the blinker. No need to remember which way. A light tap is all it takes. I...

Do you still like the "click click" sound of the cancel mechanism when turning the steering wheel with the blinker engaged with old-style controls? The modern control is silent, and does its job...

Yes, the wheel needs to be returned almost to the straight-ahead position to cancel the signal. My '11 was the same. When the turn is such that the road after the turn is still angled, just tap the...

I believe my first BMW, 2005 330i (E46), had the window controls on the center console. They were far enough apart as to be inconvenient when trying to close up all the windows when shutting down...

Then you would still have your foot on the brake, right? If I recall, once in this "deferred" shutdown method, the car is then in "radio readiness" mode, so only 1 final press is needed. I still...

There is no sense, or logical reason, to keep your foot on the brake for the initial shutdown button press. Stop doing this and your problem will go away. Secure the vehicle with e-brake (if...

Some of those scuff/scratches appear pretty harsh -- they would probably happen to any leather. However, when I first saw pictures of the Nappa versions in the F10, compared to previous 5's, I don't...

Finally looked at the pics. Seems mostly like scuffs, especially on the driver seat bolster areas and that scrape near the console. These are not material defects, IMO.

OK, I had an '11 and now a '14. They both work the same way. I don't store radio station in the 8 "hard" buttons, but in the Preset list. I don't think the 8 buttons are accessible via iDrive. ...

I have found, at least in my previous '11 535i, that the gauge readout can take quite a while to register a "new" level. For instance, a couple of times I added 1/2 quart when it was low, and it...

Hmm, I may have assumed that earlier CA didn't have those buttons (without the foot activation). I'm probably mistaken, aorry.

He did state it worked fine with the fob. Therefore, I thought it might be "user error" as I noted. It will be interesting to hear if it happens with a modified, single "kick".

How long are you "waving" your foot? A single swipe should do the job. Maybe your last "wave" is confusing it after it was already in the process of opening, so it stops.
