I've never been in a car where the seat heats as quickly as the F10. I was in a friend's ATS and turned on the seat. 15 minutes later, when we got where we were going, I just started feeling a bit...

Hmm, have you owned a car previously? Batteries get weaker as temperatures drop. Your battery is either not being charged sufficiently, or it is simply time to replace it.

What do you think is specific about a certain leather that would "make" the color transfer? I don't think that is the factor. Leather, like anything else, is a "surface". Things touch it. I don't...

Is the some lease incentive? Straight sales incentives remain active on ordered cars for 90 days after they end. Why not order the specific car you want - you should get the same deal.

Yeah, that's a viable solution. Even my "plain old" Levi's washed (in the washer) dark jeans left a slight residue on my mid-toned Amaro brown leather. My suggestion is just carry a light towel in...

Give it about 5 minutes and the heat will settle down. It's like a preheat function, even low setting gets pretty warm for the first few minutes. Initially with my previous '11, I thought it was a...

I don't have it either. Believe you need multi-contour seats for that additional feature.

GM turns off their DRL's as well when the turn signal comes on, have been that way for years. Many other brands do this as well, especially when the turn signal is very close to the DRL source. I...

This has been discussed before. My '14 535i (and '11) with standard seats does not have this feature. I think it might only be on the 550i with the Executive package, or some other item that also...

You mean the parking lights, which effectively are, the DRL's. However, you don't turn on the DRL's with the control knob.

The first picture of that front tire looks like the whole side is worn. You either take corners at 80 mph, or you have an alignment issue.
