Hud

I have gotten so used to it I plan on getting it on all future cars.

Thanks

Thanks for the heads up.

I will be taking a taxi from downtown. I will fine tune the directions and load the entrance in my GPS so I don't get taken for a "Manhattan taxi ride".

My 2008 I know has a trunk key. I will look at the X3 today to see if it has a key opening. The transport mode idea I am still researching.
