OMG. Some of you act like a scratch is so easy to fix. Others think it's great that a dealer will agree to repaint a whole panel! WHAT?? A repaint, unless done by some specialized hi-end shop,...

Then you would still have your foot on the brake, right? If I recall, once in this "deferred" shutdown method, the car is then in "radio readiness" mode, so only 1 final press is needed. I still...

There is no sense, or logical reason, to keep your foot on the brake for the initial shutdown button press. Stop doing this and your problem will go away. Secure the vehicle with e-brake (if...

Some of those scuff/scratches appear pretty harsh -- they would probably happen to any leather. However, when I first saw pictures of the Nappa versions in the F10, compared to previous 5's, I don't...

Finally looked at the pics. Seems mostly like scuffs, especially on the driver seat bolster areas and that scrape near the console. These are not material defects, IMO.

OK, I had an '11 and now a '14. They both work the same way. I don't store radio station in the 8 "hard" buttons, but in the Preset list. I don't think the 8 buttons are accessible via iDrive. ...

I have found, at least in my previous '11 535i, that the gauge readout can take quite a while to register a "new" level. For instance, a couple of times I added 1/2 quart when it was low, and it...

Hmm, I may have assumed that earlier CA didn't have those buttons (without the foot activation). I'm probably mistaken, aorry.

Same thing happened on my '11 535i when I first took delivery. Both horns were replaced under warranty. It's a shame that these kinds of parts are made ao cheaply that they no longer perform their...

He did state it worked fine with the fob. Therefore, I thought it might be "user error" as I noted. It will be interesting to hear if it happens with a modified, single "kick".

How long are you "waving" your foot? A single swipe should do the job. Maybe your last "wave" is confusing it after it was already in the process of opening, so it stops.
