Sorry those didn't work. Let me know what the final resolution was. I wouldn't mind switching to the 535xi touring, but not in the budget right now. :cry:

They didn't on mine. Sounds like a lot of people are having the seals go bad. It's weird all the other rubber/seals are fine, just the windshield on mine completely cracked.

I don't know for sure, but my guess is that you don't get all OEM functions like address book etc on the display. Because they sure don't go into much detail about what it has. I guess it wouldn't...

Too bad kids can't go back there!

Sometimes I wish I could put the kids back in 'coach'. They make as much as a mess as a dog sometimes. Didn't BMW offer an 3rd row for the Touring at one point or am I dreaming?
