Was checking out some pictures of various colors, which I had seen before. This one, IMO, is very accurate for Cognac... Just slightly lighter than my Amaro Brown Merino.

I didn't look just now, but on the F10, I believe it was just a box in the iDrive menu under entertainment? Or click right on the iDrive control or hit "Options" button while on Entertainment...

My wife's Acura TLX is similar. At first I thought it was working pretty good. But even on a gentle curve, it will allow the car to drift right out of the lane, usually when turning toward the...

In the F10, and most other automatic HVAC's, the upper windshield vents are generally used only in moderate ambient temps, when the system wants to provide some indirect cooling. Otherwise, the main...

Glad it made a difference. Just a note, I'm not sure about your last BMW, but for all 4 of mine, I've always needed to keep the temp set around 68 (for winter heating too) for comparable cooling in...

Sorry to ask, but another forum friend was not 100% up with the auto fan operation. Are you sure your fan indicator is in at least the 3rd or 4th box? Remember, this is not an indicator of actual...

Just curious then, what level was the fan set to when you first looked? Hopefully 1 or 2 (to explain your low fan speed observation).

Misunderstanding. It wasn't to you. I was amplifying your statement, and indicating that the auto fan control has been that way since 2006.

What climate options, exactly, are "not even offered on a five anymore"? Bet a lot of people don't even know about the residual heat function, or how to operate it.

Um, BMW auto fan "intensity ranges" have worked this way since introduced on the E60! See, there are still many previous BMW owners who have no idea of the basic HVAC controls.

Clarification. ...

Of course you had auto fan set to level 3 or 4? This is odd. As I mentioned, I test drove a G30 last week in very hot and humid weather (about 92 degrees), after it had sat in the sun for about 45...

Are you saying you got your car back from service, and the software update did not fix your AC issues?

I recently test drove a G30 (again), to test the AC on a hot day. Although the fan was running pretty fast in Auto mode, I noticed barely any air from those "iPad" upper vents.

The side lines of the G30 are not all that different from the F10. You can't immediately know it's a BMW from the front? No hint of Lexus hideousness to be seen. The rear is just streamlined a...

Sounds good, but too bad you didn't ask specifically if an HVAC software update was included. Pure conjecture at this point. Won't know if an update was included and either did or did not solve the...

I think it's just a matter of any company is not going to admit, on a phone call, that they know about a problem. SOP.

My pre-LCI 2011 did not, 2014 LCI (non-MSport) does. Easily seen behind the grill.
