Wonder what's the fuss all about. Mine came with HID headlights and they are already very bright. Don't think I'll ever bother to change.

I don't think BMW technicians will code for you. You can do it yourself provided you have the right hardware and some IT skills. Otherwise get someone who knows the how-to. Can't you open and close...

Tailgate creaks during operation

Tailgate works fine BUT the gas struts make creaking sounds during operation. Sounded like a stiff door when opened or someone straining to BO in a toilet. :eek:
Is that normal for a 1yr old car?
