I had a similar proble with my 09 which I bought used. The ONLY WAY for a replacement key to work is to take it to the dealer to program. I paid $150.00 for which the selling dealer reimbursed me.

I think you need to update your Iphone software to IOS 5.1.1. When I did this update I found it worked seamlessly with the car.

Why are you using a cable? I run mine through bluetooth and it works every time I get in the car. No cable needed.

Have a 09 328 conv. Previously had a 01 325 conv. The hardtop is much quieter. A little more than a sedan, but not huge.

The 06 325 was in its first year of production. That is not always BMW's best car. It had some issues. I would go with the newer one. It will have all the bugs out.

Great Writeup

That was a great comparison. I also came from a 04 e60 530 to a 11 F10 528. How the car has evolved is amazing. But I have noticed that much of the technology is also popping up in Camry's and...

Nav System

Have been using the nav system. I have tried to raise the volume of the voice with the turn by turn directions and I cannot figure it out. Anyone know how to adjust this volume.

I have had both these cars. You want to go with the 330. I just traded my 530. Fantastic car. But more like a lux sedan. The 330 is all sport. Fun to drive. Can you afford the insurance?

Resetting Brake Service Light

I had pads/sensors/rotors replaced by an independent shop. They said the service light would automatically reset after driving. It has not done so. How do I reset this light?

I had the same problem. The screen said I had 11000 miles left on the pads. There is a voluntary recall on this if the customer complains. Mine were replaced and the problem went away.
