My foot doesn't touch the sill when I get in or out. What are you all doing that the letters fall off? My new 535i has Individual door sills, which are designed differently. There are no letters...

I ordered Individual paint and leather -- I think it took 4 or 5 weeks to see a build date. Overall, the car took an extra month over my other BMW's.

Time for a service visit. Don't put anything in that center area. My wife actually did something similar in her Acura and they got it out for free.

The OP appears to live in California, USA. There is no separate cornering lamp option in the U.S. I believe he has them and is not aware of their function or operating modes.

Good luck, it sounds like your car will arrive very soon! I had that color combination on my previous 535i, you should be very happy with it.
