I guarantee the BMW loans for my business, but they're not on my recent TransUnion report. No leases for us - too many miles. My wife's loan shows up because the car is in both our names.

I've felt this in many cars, not just BMW. I think its just a vibration from the wiper mounts, transmitted through the firewall and into the break pedal.

Seat Heaters slow to warm up

The seat heaters in my 2014 335GT seem to take several minutes before they start warming. This is compared to my previous 2007 328 and my wife's 2009 335 - the older cars seats start warming almost...
