Mein Auto: 2007 328xi
328xi Vent Mode

Hello Members:

I've owned an '07 328xi since Dec '10 - very happy with it (here in the northeast). Question - does this car have an actual vent mode - venting outside air into the car without the compressor or fan? Something always seems to be running. Please advise.

Thanks,

Alan

If you turn the fan all the way down

If you turn the fan all the way down it turns off
the temp controller completely. Turning it back up or diddling
with one of the other dials turns it back on.
How that effects the vent configuration I don't know.

Hello ctuna:

Thanks for the reply. This has been my experience also. I'd like to know if there is a "vent mode" - a way to bring outside air into the car without using the compressor or fan. Please advise.

Air re-circulation off, should bring fresh air into the cabin.

Reason it's always warm (with AC off) is because the cabin filter sits right above the engine.

Hello fdriller9:

Thanks for the reply. I failed to shut the air-recirculation off, I think that's the trick.
