I kind of thought the inability to read the displays with polarized sunglasses was a safety feature intended to keep the driver from getting distracted.

But then BMW went and changed everything with the LCI E90 and now both can be read while wearing polarized sunglasses.

A little tip: Ranting for the sake of ranting usually doesn't get much appreciation around here. Good luck with your ride.
Yep-per on that. Although it sounds like maybe the OP might want to check into whether the CA Lemon Law could get them out of their misery er, ride. There have been other owners who have been able to get out of CPO cars once they hit the magic threshold of 4 failed HP fuel pumps.

FWIW, my experience in LA is that if you hold up traffic, you get the horn and the middle-fingered wave regardless of what car you drive. Ask Toyota Prius owners about their experiences.
