Hmmm. Interesting. I will go look for where I can push a pin in. Just so I understand, are you saying that the feature is there, just not enabled by default? Wonder why BMW would hide it :dunno:

I always put Shell V-Power (91). I notice the fuel door actually says minimum 89. My previous X5 said minimum 91 on the fuel door.

I used to put Sunoco 93 (now Petro Canada) in my X5, but turns...

Dreamcar is right.
