So, BMW did not find anything wrong with the Blind Spot assist or Collision warning. Yesterday, on another trip in my just washed BMW, the Blind Spot starting providing lots of false warnings again....

My wife likes the Q5 too, however she will not buy, because it does not have a heated steering wheel or HUD. Better options on the BMW X3 and X5. She is so used to a heated steering wheel, she is...

Funny, as we are looking at the diesel versions in X5 and X3 too. What makes the X3 a hot commodity? Also looking at a Porsche Cayenne diesel, but it is much more money and no free maintenance.

Thanks all for the posts. I understand the Collision warning having false positives. It is the blind spot that seems confusing. That one is not camera based, it is radar based - right?

That would be very sad if a dirty car would cause that. It would make it totally useless in the winter. Have blind spot and collision warning in our Mercedes GL350 now for 3 years and dirty car or...

Blind Spot and Collision False Warnings

I have a 2014 328d I purchased last April. Blind spot has worked great until yesterday, when it started giving false warnings and no warnings at all when a car was next to me. Drove over 300 miles...

Totally agree with you, as I really care about fuel economy too, which is why I usually buy diesel. My wife and I both put 20,000 miles a year on our cars, so fuel economy matters. I can buy just...

In the Cleveland area, diesel is $3.79 (at least in my area) and regular is $2.79. It was even about $1.25 spread a week or so ago. Never have seen the spread that large before. Very frustrating,...

The run flats that came on my 328d seem really good, but I wonder how non run flats compare. So, far I have no complaints with my run flats.

I thought HUD will be a novelty too, but now that I am used to it, I can not imagine having another car without. Think it is a great safety feature too, as your eyes are always on the road.

Completely agree on CT200h. I also had one and so happy I traded into my 328d - so much more fun. Plus, the CT200h was horrible in the snow, where the 328d xDrive will be great.

I would also like the no this answer. We might be buying a 2015 X5 and curious if you can stack the USAA with the Unforgettable coupon. Thanks!

I don't understand why BMW does not install them at the factory like our Mercedes GL. They have to know that a lot of people that buy an X5 would also need a tow hitch. I have owned 3 GL's and they...
