Do you have it in full screen mode or split screen? I think it only shows arrival time/distance info in split screen mode.

I can't believe that passes as newsworthy and worse yet, that the Globe would publish it.

When I had my 325Ci, I changed the AT fluid at 60K. It came out like dirty water - liquidy and gray, with small black sludge. Huge difference between what came out and the nice golden honey color...

I frequently use sport and manual modes. The tranny will be fine. Just make sure you change the ATF soon. I'm sure it's never been done and at 72K miles, you're at the cusp.

For the first year or so, my DICE worked great. But starting earlier this summer, the static and such that is mentioned by the OP started. Really really annoying - almost makes it un-listenable.

The only diff between the auto and manual for the belt change is removing the fan. You'll need a 32mm wrench and (if you wanna do it the easy way) a fan clutch holder tool. Here's a link to ebay...

It won't hurt the transmission, but if you put on heavier wheels, then you will notice slower accelerations and it will take longer to stop.

It's possible that you didn't completely bleed the system. After any coolant change, you should check it a few times in the first couple of weeks to make sure that you don't need to add more.
