Hopefully it was down to upgrade service. The traffic info is better than it was with the CIC, but it is by no means as real-time as the web site of the department of transportation in my area.

The most dis-satisfying part of my purchase was that my 15 year old, 150k miles E39 had fewer squeaks and rattles than the two F30s I've owned.

The shuttering MOG service (which was AWESOME) is certainly doomed now.

We had a Mini Cooper do this. Root cause was the micro switch inside the latch mechanism internal to the driver door. We replaced it DIY.

MOG is about to rebrand itself as Beats! Music. I really hope we don't lose the idrive integration, as it is my favorite as well.

With the solid tone, you still have a few inches. I back into my garage until I get the solid tone and I can fit my legs behind the car.

It turned out to be a bad connecting rod bearing. Because it had caused excessive wear in one of the cylinders, the dealer is replacing the whole engine. :thumbdwn:
