I'm not sure what's staying on. When it has happened I didn't notice until the battery was dead. Yesterday only the tail lights were on, but maybe that was after it didn't have enough...

Thanks but I'm not really interested in having a cable hanging out. I wanted the nice neat "dock" you get with the 4/4S.

Right, but shouldn't there be a way to retrofit the new 5 adapter into a 2011 F10? I was hoping some hacker type had figured it out.

Low oil warning on new car

Saturday afternoon, my F10 with 2500 miles on it gave me a warning that I was low on oil. It said I needed to add a quart. Since my dealer was closed until Monday, I planned on calling them today,...

I downshift without rev matching to slow down when coming to a stop while also braking. It's never more than about one gear down, and isn't hard on the engine at all. The revving the car does in this...

Yes, sure - you're right, it still works. I just don't like the "vrooom!" when I downshift and I'm not even touching the accelerator.

Yes, it is cool - except when you're downshifting while braking to slow down. Right or wrong, I do that a lot and get an unwanted "VROOOM!" when I'm slowing down.

It probably does happen all the time, you wouldn't notice it if you're rev matching.

Since I downshift almost every time I come to a stop sign or intersection, it's pretty noticable to me.

Windows Registry? Are you serious? These cars don't use a Windows OS, do they?

Thanks for the suggestion to try the 650 forum, good idea. There must be more manual transmission owners there.
