The manual in my M235i is very. very good, but not the best that I've had in a BMW. It is far better than the manual in my 2007 E90 335i. In comparison it has a shorter shift than that car. However,...

The satisfaction that I'm seeking is in the sound quality - can they add programming to add the equalizer and logic 7 sound controls?
