I'm 6'4"/220# and the standard seats are fine for me, even on an eight-hour trip with a couple of stops. Sound system seems fine also, but then I'm not 18 any more.:cry:

NAV Disc for 2007 530xi

As others have noted, there should be a DVD in the lower drive which holds all the NavTeq-produced data. If you're missing a disc, someone has taken it (who knows why?), and you'll need to recover...

Unhappy AUX Volume

Why can't the volume in AUX input be matched to the rest of the audio sources? (Please don't tell me about the "fix"...if BMW can do it in the 3-Series, why not the 5?):rolleyes:
