MSDs = locking you into your lease for the entire term. Don't do it unless you're 100% certain you're able to see the lease through to full term (and I would argue very few people fit in that 100%...

Is there updated firmware for 6WB as of yet that enables HUD turn signals? One of my fav features and to not have it is a bummer.

Gracenote is what is used to identify artist CDs that you insert into the car with Album art, artist and song info. Just one example.

IDrive text to speech - disable? (Way too detailed!)

At some point this weekend I modified some setting somewhere that made the nav voice commands system speak every single piece of text on the screen. How do I turn that off?

I just did a lease transfer out of a 2014 M5. Just finalized yesterday actually. :)

Agree with all the others. There's typically a 2% residual "ding" going from 10k/yr to 12k, and then another 1% 12k to 15k. Get the 10k/yr and then pay BMW .16 a mile for any additional miles if...

Yep.. No dazzle (no glare) high beams are number 1. The comfort access features are 2nd. Turning off all the chimes and warning nannies are 3rd on my list.
