I didn't realize they filled the washer fluid at the factory. And the stuff BMW USA lists on their website doesn't contain antifreeze. So for those of us who live in winter climates in the U.S.,...

Yeah, I don't get it. I keep checking and there's nothing out there, anywhere. Anxious to hear about the experience.

I'm pretty sure my E90 had that, visible near the base of the windshield. I don't see it on my new F30, and I can't remember if my last F30 had it, but it may be using the rain sensor. The technical...

I set mine on Auto and forget it. You don't have to mess with the fan speed at all, just let the ACC adjust as necessary. I use either the middle or next-higher "intensity" setting. The fan speed...

I have a 2015 build and it has the five bolt mounts. Really curious what, if anything, this means. Does the difference in mounts necessarily mean I have different struts than the three bolt anchors...

Thanks for the responses. I figured it might be a limitation of the broadcasts in the area where I live.

RTTI traffic flow: Where's the orange?

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...

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...

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.
