Great choice in colors. Sounds like you got a really loaded one. With the HUD, just don't wear polarized sun glasses. I had on polarized lenses while driving at an M6 event and couldn't see the HUD...

Great deals on Bimmers in California. I'm interested. Tell me where.

To update your nav system, you may need the newest DVD. I had to update mine that way.

Go with the '08

Maybe because of the demons that I have in my own '07, I'd go with an '08.

Problems eventually fixed:

Sirius Satellite loses presets and categories and can't change channel (Sirius head unit...

Backseat for 9 hours?

They must still be small. My teenage girls can take maybe 30 minutes in the back seat. I LOVE the drive up front though - when it's not in the shop.

Not normal behavior

I had the same problem. I kept mine on a tender too to prevent all those problems. But after several software updates for various problems and possibly a few 80mi drives, the problem went away....

Same problem - will try again at dealer

I have the same problem in my '07 with the slow start up of iDrive. I don't keep my car locked in my garage (does anyone?) and so I can get in, buckle up, press the start button, back out, close the...

Does the 1 series have RDS or PTY on the radio?

I too got a 128i loaner recently. I was in getting new tires and a long-standing problem with my Sirius SAT unit on my 650i convertible. They gave me a 2009 128i convertible as a loaner. My comments...

I received this message too for the first time today. I assume it's electrical/radio interference with the wireless portion of the TPM. Not sure of the cause either.

Does SMG have a P position?

Good catch! Ok, I haven't driven an SMG equipped car in some time, so this may not apply. But I always put my auto car in P when getting gas and my manual in gear with the brake on.

Having the 911 engine right behind your head probably didn't help with the road noise.

I got my 07 650i back today with new software. The original owner never requested any fixes as best I can tell and it had Progman 23.xx in it (vehicle data status E060-06-09-520).

I don't know what software version you have in your iDrive, but in Progman version 23, they fixed an issue in which CD/DVD changers continued to spin when the key is off. I don't know...

Hire a teen with smaller hands and some interest in cars. He (or she) would be happy to make $15 in 15 minutes. It's a very easy install.

Too bad I had ordered my R-Dash ones before I saw this. They aren't even as bright as the OEM angel eyes, although the color is better.
