Thanks! I was at the parts department of my dealer today and they didn't have the floor liners in stock, so I'll have to order them.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I haven't seen a huge change like that, but I watched the number drop from 7.4 to 7.2. I just don't understand what that could even mean. Is it implying that ECO PRO is...

Do the all weather floor liners all say xDrive on them? That's what the bmwusa.com site shows.

I'd say interior. It's what I see when I'm driving, way more than the exterior.

Semi-related question: Has Estoril Blue ever been available with the Lemon leather interior? It sounds kind of...

One thing that the BMW website does not render correctly (to my delight and surprise) is the headliner in the Venetian Beige interior. If you configure a base line model (which is what I have), the...

I don't know about nationally, but in Michigan, the dealers I visit seem to stock a significant majority of cars with xDrive, across all the lines. I'd guess 80% or more of the cars on the lot have...

If you have Auto turned on, then the five-speed fan adjustment is adjusting the system's "intensity" levels. This means the system will still automatically adjust the fan speed, but with a tendency...

I just got my F30 and it does the same thing as yours; opens about 80% on the first press and then the remaining 20% on the next press.

Thanks so much, guys. It was driving me crazy. Can't believe I've had the car this long without really noticing it. I rarely have rear-seat passengers so I guess it's just never come up.

Thanks...

What is it?

Just behind the rear seat headrests, on the rear window shelf of my 2009 328i xDrive sedan, there are the three hooks you can loop a restraining belt through. But there's also a v-shaped plastic...

I first wore it in July '09 when I took delivery of my first. I will wear it again in early September of this year. In fact, I kind of wore a facsimile of one when I got my production number today.

I saw this right after my last post, but this confirms what I suspected; the system might let a little bit of bad air in before it switches. Makes sense.

Climate control auto-recirculate question

I leave the recirculate setting on my climate control on auto, with the understanding that the system will switch to recirc mode whenever it senses poor air quality.
