Don't worry, everyone says Car Play is crap, so you're missing nothing by not having Android Auto!

This is normal and has been a 'feature' for many many years - at least nine (my last three cars have all done it and I keep them three years).

If the overall cooling capacity is compromised (i.e.,...

It really isn't though. Android adoption only outstrips iOS if you include the billions of $20 phones - many of which aren't even smartphones.

In this premium market segment, Apple are still king....

420 is just lightly tinted rear windows (everything aft of the b-pillar). No idea why they call it 'sun protection glass' - it's a stupid name.

Ambient Air is specific hardware that has to be ordered when the car is built. No-one will have a slot in their glovebox if they haven't ordered it. Code is 4NM.

Another weird omission for the US...

This isn't a bug, it's a fault, otherwise everyone would be reporting it. It's probably just a loose connector somewhere.

Pull and hold the right paddle, then do a quick pull of the left one, then release the right.

In essence, it's a quick pull of both together, but you must lead with the right. The way you use your...

30-35% never happened apart, perhaps, ex demonstrators. You should be able to get 10-12% if you push hard.

If not, the surround view cameras will also solve your problem. I never turn my body when parking in my current F10, and the cameras are even better on the G30.

Adaptive is an option (524), and High Beam Assist is a different option (5AC) - so you probably don't have it.

It's dead easy to check though - whilst facing a wall or something, and with your...

The lack of 4 Zone AC for the US model is completely baffling. It's optional here in the UK, but it is at least an option. Why they are excluding it even if you're willing to pay for it makes no...

I can't see how they're anything but the dictionary definition of adjacent! The angle of them is surely irrelevant when you're sat in front of them. There are many cars with '3D' elements in their...
