"Car Wash" setting?

I seem to remember that there was a "car wash" setting somewhere in settings but I can't remember where it is. Can anyone point me in the right direction and also explain what this actually does?

No, just from my smartphone using the Bimmerfest app. If you don't already have that, just search in your app store (Apple) or play store (Android).

Nothing about this is sounding like it's within normal limits. I'd bring it into the dealership ASAP and let them figure out what the problem is.

Yikes!!! That's horrible. Unless you're doing repeated quarter mile drag strip sprints, you should be getting much better mileage than that. Something is definitely wrong.

You don't have to throw out the RFT's. You can order the car with regular tires if you want as a no cost option.

Can it receive OTA updates and, if so, do you think it's likely that it will be updated on a regular basis?

How can there be any OTA updates to something that's on a DVD? Unless it's a rewritable DVD you can't alter it. Am I missing something?

Nav system OTA updates

Is the current nav system dvd based, as in the F10, or is it internet based so that it's capable of getting OTA updates? If it's internet based, is it constantly being updated to changes in road...

I'm beginning to think that car reviewers don't have a clue

This guy must be hearing things that no one else is because if there's one thing the 540 doesn't sound like, it's a four banger.

Yeah, really. Who buys a 540 and then uses Eco mode??? It's like a rubber band is attached to the engine. Really awful. Especially when you get 27.8 mpg in Comfort mode.

Noticing A Bit Of That Dreaded F10 Lag In Power Delivery
