Thanks Gentlemen. First thing I will check is the winter (red) setting using i-Drive. Then I will use a thermometer to check the temps. I would hope this solves the issue.

Good comment on the lack of storage space. If there is a place to put spare change, I haven't found it yet. I understand BMW's commitment to being a driver's car, but come on, give in a little.

Actually I worded that wrong - I like that feature. How can I reprogram it so the mirror does angle down when it's in reverse? Is that set up in i-Drive as an option. I couldn't find it.
