No. He means chrome strips on the center vents, not straddling the nav screen. The vent chrome strips are not standard on LCI without 4 zone.

It's funny, I kind of liked the way the old one worked, and never had an issue. That said, I don't drink or eat in my car. I sometimes bring back a drink from carry-out back to work, or sometimes...

Why are you concluding those are not the trunk sensors in my picture? Perhaps they were there in '11 but not utilized for the function. What else would they be for? Now I'll have to find a '14 F10...

Is it possible you don't have your side mirrors positioned correctly? Most people don't, and were trained improperly. With them set correctly, there is no blind spot, and a warning indicator would...

First, do you have the Comfort Access option? That is where the door handles can be "touched" to unlock and lock the doors. Two, I'm not sure the auto trunk was available in 2011 model year --...

Whoops, you're right! I didn't pay attention. Nothing moves when I open the cover of my '14 cupholder.

I had an '11 535i and now have a '14. Someone previously mentioned some change in the LCI cupholder, but I see no difference.

How it Works and Observations

I think some of "us" are over-thinking the whole "kick" process. As I mentioned before, for my '14 535i, a casual movement of my foot under the bumper works every time. I don't give it a lot of...

I don't recall an iDrive menu setting for the auto trunk. I there was a setting, it would probably be in with the Locking section. However, my CA trunk worked from day 1 and I never set anything. ...

My car did take about an extra month for a build date, compared with my previous orders. I thought this might have been caused more by the Individual paint, but not sure.

The Amaro pictures I've posted in this thread are pretty accurate, IMO. It is basically a mid-tone saddle color with some orangey overtones, but not excessively so. I have Azurite Black, which is...

Darn! An hour away from me, and we have theater tickets that night. 2 questions: Do people with totally stock cars show up? Can you get out of there whenever you need to before the 4PM closing?

I don't think I'd worry about the surface differences between Nappa (dash) and Merino, if that's the direction you want to head. They are both smooth surfaces, nobody will pay attention. I do note...

Agree, I think black interior would be my last choice with these very dark blues. I'm partial to non-black interiors anyway, but even Mocha Nappa, for me, would be better than all black inside.

OK, but that would happen regardless of which leather your car would have. I would think it would blend better with Nappa or Merino, more smooth surfaces.

That does look very nice in the configurator, the wood tone. True, that Amaro is not the true color in that image. I think I got scared off by those other 7-series images I noted, with some other...
