Found a new feature in my coupe

When the moon roof is open, if you press the "up" twice quickly, it closes the roof and slides the cover forward.

Has anyone had issues with closing the moonroof? There have been 2 times where it won't close. One time it lasted 2 days. The other was half a day. I would shut it and then it opened right back up. And it would do this over and over

When this happens, hold the button in until the roof closes and stays shut. It resets it somehow.

Thanks for the info! Also works on my 7... You have to quickly slide switch to "Close position" twice to shut both sunroof and shade. If you punch "Up" twice it will move sunroof to tilt position and leave shade partially open to promote airflow.

What seat bolsters are you talking about?

If we didn't have seat bolsters, we would all fall off the sides

On my 08 E60 there was a button on the side that I pressed, the sides of the seat would expand to hold you snug in your seat which was good when you drove on twisty roads. My daughters 013 M sport X3 has them. I tried to order it back when I was ordering my car and
I was told it was discontinued at the time. I now see that its back for the 13 model year. Read up on it in this thread. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...=seat+bolsters

Thank you. It's Deep Sea Blue. It really sparkles. I get a lot of compliments.

My 2012 650 has adjustable back bolsters. I think they all do.

The arrow is pointing to the back bolster adjustment control.
