I had that happen to my 328d once too. Never had that happen with any other car before, so I just figured it was my mistake.

My wife requires the heated steering wheel though. Her existing SUV has it and she loves that option. :) I like it too, especially on winters like the last two. I also have it on my 328d M Sport...

Thanks for the info. Can not believe they still can not be ordered together on a M-Sport. Guess it is on to other SUV's. :)

Interesting on it being cheaper that a 2015 M Sport. Were you able to ask if the cold weather package and driver assistance plus package can be ordered together on a M Sport for 2016? Thanks!

Sure, the best technology advantage the X5/X3 have over the Cayenne is the HUD. I have that on my 328d and just love that. No such option for the Cayenne yet. I like the implementation of idrive,...

My wife wants to go with no line, if we get an X5. I like the M Sport though, but she will probably win out. :)

Funny, as we are looking at the diesel versions in X5 and X3 too. What makes the X3 a hot commodity? Also looking at a Porsche Cayenne diesel, but it is much more money and no free maintenance.

Thanks all for the posts. I understand the Collision warning having false positives. It is the blind spot that seems confusing. That one is not camera based, it is radar based - right?
