i think haskindm is correct , why not have both ?, i do not think it is about saving , i think it is a stupidity , there is no reason not have both ,
if someone never open hood , why the rest of us have to be punished ? if someone does not care , do we have to be the same ?
i challenge can some one get official reply from BMW maker , the reason for not having both .
Benz maker have , and all luxury cars do have it ,
i give a prove of the stupidity , the 7 series until 2000 have in there screen a calender that displays date and day , in the new one's no day in the screen , is it saving ? if for any reason from any pocket , why not have it as option selection ?
i tell you another thing never expected, when the agent changed the firs oil change in my 7 series , found one screw missing from crank case , never installed as tech. explained , they forgot it . which caused the slowly leakage and electronics sensors did not read it , neither the display show any missing oil , i was given full level reading and engine giving noise .
