Well, I'm a serious audiophile, but I never spend much money on a car system. For me, it's not worth the money in a vehicle environment. I do have a discerning ear, and can easily differentiate...

People like to state this. However, for me, other than a slight lack of stereo separation, Sirius pretty much matches HD FM performance. Better than Bluetooth Pandora for sure, not matching imports...

It's not the Presets screen, until you store favories there. Back up one screen where you directly select FM and AM stations. You should see the "Satellite" band selection there as well, even if...

IMO, AutoVisuals pens were great, but they went out of business. I tried another brand but it wasn't as good, mostly due to the tip style and paint flow. Looking for another brand.

Why? Don't almost all air suspensions fail over time? Will you also want that kit where the car bounces up and down -- great for Havana maybe.

Go to the radio screen via iDrive. You should see a screen for scanning FM/AM/Satellite bands. I just went out to check my '14 again (I also had an '11). Unlike XM, I don't think there is a...

Never had an issue with my 2014 535i trunk. Can't figure out though why people have an "issue" doing the kick the right way -- I just casually pivot my foot under the center area and it works every...

More accurately, "no charge". Meaning, of course, you choose a Nappa finished interior. Of course, the other colors remain Dakota.

Car is totally shut down? Pull back on lever (as if "flash to pass", not push forward)? I think it also worked this way on my '08 335i.

The "software" for the cruise control should simply maintain throttle input to maintain the speed. It's hard to fathom it has entry into actual engine management factors. Rotate tire because of the...

True. But some of the other quality aspects the OP mentioned, thickness of body panels, interior trim, etc, are not related to the chassis, but simply a higher "quality" overall.

As for low miles, not sure I'd be concerned. My 2014 535i (2years old in March) is just coming up to 9900 miles. When I sell it in another 1.5 years, someone will have a brand new creampuff.

The fan speed changes at intensity level 2, and even 3, can be somehat subtle if the cabin temp is close to the set point. Check again at startup, when the difference may be a bit more extreme. ...
