I use ACC on my F10 on every single journey. It is without doubt the most useful feature on the car and I wouldn't even consider a vehicle without it now.

Looking forward to the G30 where they...

Unless it's changed on the G30, you don't navigate to the actual screen you want, you highlight the menu item for the thing you're wanting to do, then do the long press there.

Thoroughly cheap and nasty interior. Even the exterior beauty (and it certainly is a pretty car) is only skin deep. Look closely and you'll see/feel the cheapness again. Except it's not cheap. I...

I honestly think the Hybrid one must cost more to manufacture. There's more plastic, more LEDs, and also two electromechanical gauges. A single big TFT is surely cheaper these days.

Yes, I was just pointing out that there are basic controls in the back. BMW refer to it as 3/2 zone in the technical docs and it explains how it works in more detail.

The standard three zone AC has rear controls. You can adjust the airflow on the left and right vents independently, and the temperature for both together using the wheel in the centre.

I can't see how the above can be true - it's been part of that package since launch and is listed as an item in all the brochures and price lists.

The accelerator doesn't turn it off - it temporarily suspends it for as long as you touch it, then resumes the previous set speed / distance when you release.

2TE is not limited to hybrid cars. I've had it on both of my last two F10's which were 520d in M-Sport trim.

The gesture control camera is above your head in the overhead lighting console. I doubt it's fitted on vehicles not equipped with gesture control.

I'm confused but yes, you're totally right.

I've had two cars with SAT (F10 and F10 LCI), and neither of them have the gaiter.

No, it's not the same. You don't get the stiffer springs and lower ride height.

DDC is never as 'hard' a ride as the M Sport suspension, even when in sport mode.

M Sport with Dynamic Dampers is purely cosmetic though so the above doesn't make sense.

Once you add the Dynamic Dampers, the M Sport suspension is deleted.

M Sport suspension is a little harsh. Most people order these cars with VDC (I think you call it DDC in the US).

I would have thought most dealer demo cars would have it - worth checking.
