Different key?

Do you have comfort access? I do and it happened to me today... until I realized I had grabbed my wife's key from the counter and she has not bothered to customize things.

Many things to do

Our family has a vacation home outside of West Yellowstone so I am quite familiar with the area. A lot depends on your, and your kid's, interest.

First there is the park itself and deciding where...

Confusing, but apparently normal

It happened to me as well just a couple of weeks ago. Confused my sales guy to no end. Consulted SA and they did not know so he ended up calling BMW Assist folks while I was there (apparently they...

Good eyes

I knew I was in the pics with the Breitling cap, but I had not realized the B-1 was in there recognizable. I went back to check and I guess so, but only for those who know it well (owners like you).

Jawel dus

Ik spreek inderdaad Nederlands, maar slechts op vakantie in Nederland en een enkele keer met vrienden.

iPOD scrolling speed fix?

I have a MY08 535i with 6FL option, picked up Munich July 9 (June production). I have no idea what progman version I have. I've been experiencing two annoying issues:

You were right

I wasn't able to get it on, on part because I did not not know the exact orientation, in part because the metal inside was bent (I had driven over it apparently). Any BMW of Mountain View put it back...

I believe it is fine...

I just did my 535i yesterday. Received it back from redelivery the day before (3,600 mi on it already). I had not been able to do this prep in Europe, so it was high time.

I washed with Dawn to...

Identify this part

Today I found a rubber strip in my drive way. Until three days ago I had my M3 there, but I am pretty sure it was not lying there until this morning. I have parked my new MY08 535i here yesterday.

I was just there

I was there in late July. It is well worth seeing. Besides perhaps planning for a specific day (if you want to see the market), you are generally going to be fine, although there might be a little...

Got the word: Next week

Finally got my CA to call the VPC to find out what's taking so long (don't know why so much prodding was necessary to get him to do that). Work order was put in on 9/12, the day my car arrived there....

If you need (almost) nothing done that is

Mine has some damage and has been in the VPC since 9/12 and still no word, other than that it is being worked on. Not even an ETA for the work there. I have asked my CA to get that ETA if they don't...

Not so.

Still no word on mine other than (CA) "Those are big ships and just because somebody's car got to San Francisco, does not mean yours will make it the same day, or even close". Heard that on Wed, was...

Might be a good idea

I just did not have to worry about the wheels. I heard comments both ways as to why it is likely to occur or not. I went the the BMW dealer on the Frankfurter ring and bought a set of 4 for about...

Difficult I think

$15 is, unfortunately on the slightly low side for what you are asking for, in the area you are asking for it. Keep in mind the Fairmont is near the convention center and there is little residential...

From the timing of all this it sounds like you experienced this while still in Europe. There is a known problem with the temporary plates. They are wider than US plates and partially obscure the...
