I actually favor that type of badge. I don't understand debadging. To me, it reduces some of the branding. I suspect that if Europeans didn't do it, we wouldn't do it either.

With all the talk about debadging, it surprises me that folks care so much about the M Sport badge.

Bet you anything they forward it to BMWNA for response. BMWNA will give you a standard stock phrase about how cars are configured for preferences and regulations of each national market, etc. etc.

What? You don't like the left-aligned minimalist approach of the current design?

The whole situation totally sucks. I've struggled with this, and BMW has told me it's not supported.

This is my second car with EU mirrors. In general, I agree with other comments that you can see much better. My only negative observation is that it is somewhat more difficult to judge the distance...

All those charges appear reasonable, although I cannot comment on the overall deal. Sales tax is charged on the bank fee and on any cap reduction. The smaller charges are all...

It'll improve, but probably not by much. I've seen 14-15mpg on broken-in 328i loaners and I think this truly sucks. The only solution I've found is with my 535d, that averages a true 21mpg in the...

It never runs while the car is shut down.

However, the system will not permit fan-only mode on restart if the AC was on at or near the time the car was shut down.

So if you turn off the AC...

Okay, fine. But there's a distinction between HVAC being on in fan-only mode and in AC mode with forced cooling.

I'm pretty sure if the AC is running when you shut off the car, you will not be able to go to fan-only mode on restart, no matter how cold it is. I've tested down to low 50s here (I'm in L.A.).
