I just tested it. If you unlock it using the fob but do not open any doors, it relocks in approximately 2 minutes. It does not, however, re-arm the alarm. Just locks it. But, as I said, there is...

Yeah, this happened to me once. I was also staying at my parent's place. I assumed the liftgate button was accidentally pushed when I threw the key in my backpack while in the house. Car was in...

I've mentioned to SA's and CA's before that they would learn a lot if they spent a little time looking through the forums once in awhile. For some reason, they didn't seem too enthused about the...

I guess it's there if you look at it, but it's not something that I ever notice. If the install is good, someone who doesn't know what it is would never notice. It just looks like it is part of the...

I installed my own. The slit is needed due to the compound curves. No way I could have got it to lay flat without it. No problems after installation. It's there for a reason.

Yes. I bought an identicle set of 469 wheels for winter. The Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow tires are RFT. I rode all over the Intermountain Northwest this past winter. Worked great.

Yeah, 315mm is a very wide tire. I can see where some older car washes have those guide rails that just aren't wide enough. It really has nothing to do with the wheels being 19" or 20" or whatever,...

Seperate cooling system reservoir?

The cooling system reservoir/tank/fill cap is on the left/drivers side of the engine compartment. There is what looks like a similar, but smaller one on the right/passenger side of the engine. It...

Assuming the fan is on the lowest setting, I wouldn't even notice it, so I guess I'm not understanding what exactly is annoying about it. On the lowest setting, if you are in auto mode and anywhere...

Just leave it in auto, with the lowest fan setting, and the air conditioning button off. When you start it up again, the A/C should stay off. The system will still be in auto, but it shouldn't be a...

Since you asked... get the X5. The X6's are hideous looking. Not that the X5's look great. They don't. They are SUV's afterall.

Whichever you have. I happen to use Redline, which comes in quarts. Most people would use BMW branded Castrol, which comes in liters.

No. Wait until it gets down to min. Then add a liter. If you add a liter now you will get an overfill warning.

No, it's not backwards. Think of it in terms of 1st gear - 2nd gear on a manual. Downshift is forward. Upshift is back. Same in my DCT. It is universal.
