Smile Frozen Console

Funny Story:
Now that its starting to get really cold up here in Northern Canada (-20C / -3F) I for the life of me couldn't figure out why the centre console of my 2013 X3 M-Sport was so freezing cold all the time. Then I remembered a post a while back about how the cup holders would be chilled by the A/C as the air for the rear vents flows through the console. I've never sat in the back seat so didn't realize the air vents had a temperature control. Sure enough it was set to the coldest setting. No wonder my 8 year old kept complaining about being cold, even with the rear heated seats on, while my wife and I were warm up front.
