I have no desire for comfort access.I had it on an Infiniti...wasn't impressed.But I like the fact that you needn't insert the keyfob into a slot as was the case with my Bluetec and my first "d".

IIRC letting a car idle for more than a very short time is illegal in at least some European countries.I've read that that's why European cars don't offer that feature.

This is the first I've ever heard of "car off" in a car wash.Cars go through torrential downpours,which are often driven by 40mph winds,all the time.

Can anyone confirm that it's possible to make the turn signals blink 5 times instead of 3 and that you can have the exact amount of fuel in the tank also display (e.g., "10.1 gallons")?

I've heard it said that using a gas that's higher in octane than your car requires doesn't harm anything but doesn't result in improved performance either.Plus,it's waster of $$$.

My "d" will soon be approaching 5K miles,which is half of what BMW requires for their US diesels.I'm strongly tempted to change at 5K.Can I ask how much you paid for this analysis?
