And I have to admit, I like the Tobacco/Black MUCH better on the X3 than the full Tobacco on the X5. . .the X5 has too much brown, the seats, doors, carpet, etc. - all brown. Brown overload as far...

If you're considering Platinum Bronze, make sure to check out the Tobacco/Black interior on it - that's the combo we got and we love it - really adds to the luxurious feel of the interior, IMHO.

"Mr. knows at all"??? Uhhh, okay. . .Houston, we have a problem! Four posts, and the two I've seen are flames. Doesn't bode well, methinks.

Maybe I'm getting old, but I think the brighter reds belong on coupes, not SAVs. My last two BMWs were both coupes (E21 and E36) and both were red. I love the Platinum Bronze, Monaco Blue or...

No, the station is scrolling, but the HU doesn't default to SCROLL ON. This is denoted by an asterisk next to the INF indicator on the HU. Every time you shut off the car, it defaults to off. The...

Changing Default Sirius Scroll to "On"?

Does anyone know if there's a way to change the default setting of the Inf button on the Sirius radio to Scroll On? I (and most others, from what I've read) seem to prefer this setting On, but it...

I'd recommend not going TOO cheap on the pressure gauge; the dial types are generally better than the pop-up types and most have a bleeder valve to help adjust the pressure down if you overfill.
