You don't need the package. Just click on the drive and view the properties. It should say FAT, FAT32, NTFS, etc.

Also, when you format your USB drive you can choose the file system you want.

Give it a little time. I noticed this when I first got my X5 as well. Now with 5000 miles, they have loosened up and feel much better.

P.S. I'm 6'4.

I'm in Bellevue, WA and Diesel here is just a few cents more than regular gasoline. Add that with the amazing mpg (I got 29.4 mpg on the freeway last week) and the 35d is a no-brainer!

I did get the Smartphone integration option when I ordered.
