There is a setting in iDrive to unlock all of the doors. If you press the start/stop button once to turn the car off and a second time right after that, everything will power down

I am assuming the PDK automatically engages enough to cause the 991 to creep when you take your foot off the brake pedal whereas the MDCT doesn't start to engage the clutch until you press on the...

I'm not sure if the PDK also incorporates a torque converter, but it behaves differently at a traffic stop than the DCT. I found the DCT terrific on my test drive. :)

PDK in 991 is awesome. The DCT in the F10 M5 is excellent as well. It behaves even more like a true manual. In the Porsche, at a stop, removing your foot from the brake allows "creep" in traffic. In...

That is what I was thinking, unless BMW uses an adhesive that let go due to faulty assembly. Easy fix though. Nice to see that the CPO warranty covers stuff like this.

The M3 is too raw and the F10 M5 isn't raw enough. Sounds like a Goldilocks story.

The 3 and 4 series cars are smaller and much lighter than the 528/535/550 and offer sportier drives. I had a 335...

Thanks for the tip. I always wash my car myself with a wand wash system. Does a better job and easier on the paint I think.

I use voice control for dealing hone numbers not in the presets. Quicker and less distracting than trying to use the iDrive while moving.
