A little update on my quest to check the brake fluid level on my 2019 X1.

Turns out, I really cannot see the level from the side through the hood hinge area. These reservoirs are made of such an...

I would think running the runflat withot a plug would ruin the tire, i.e., no chance of repair whether recommended or not.

Just checking my understanding. Normally you would plug it first to get on the road, then take it to a tire shop for the interior repair which if I recall uses a Dremel on the area, then a circular...

One thing seems odd to me. The outside photo looks like the damage is far enough away from the sidewall whereas the interior tire photo looks like the damage is much closer to the sidewall. All...

I agree that the best way is to order the spare tire kit with the car. If you try to add it after production all the equipment will cost you over $500.

As for the Bimmerzone steel wheel and the...

How to Valet my 430i xdrive CV

My 2019 F33 does not seem to have a means to secure the trunk when valeting. I do not find a switch in the glovebox and there is no option in iDrive.

Am I missing something?

Confused regarding what is gained by resetting in iDrive? Guess I have never done more than reset the button on the dash after fill up.

Thanks, Kavatski.

So like my X1, yours came from the factory with the mirrors folding on extended push of the fob or CA?

So, my '19 X1 has the functionality out of the box, but my '19 430i does not. Doesn't make sense that the higher end model would not have the features operable that the lower end model does.

I am satisfied with the way holding the key fob or the CA ridge longer closes the mirrors. What I don't understand is why my 2019 430i xdrive CV does not behave the same way.

Looks like 2016 may have been the last year the factory installed them? Engine compartment kind of looks stupid with the empty receptors sitting there.

Thanks. Just surprised coding is required whereas my X1 came that way albeit with me just finding out that it did so.

Getting Mirrors to fold on lock

I learned today that my X1 will fold in its mirrors when holding down the lock on the fob or holding the CA a few seconds extra. Similarly, when returning to the X1, if you hold the key fob open...

Hood Bumpers, Yay or Nay?

Are these hood bumpers worth having/adding to the X1?

Setings in iDrive to open all doors

I thought I had configured the iDrive settings to unlock all doors when I park the car, but it seems that only the front doors unlock.

Is there a way to code the car to unlock the rear doors?

Wondering how far apart your Thule bars are? The Thule fit notes state that there is a 24in maximum bar spread and in you photo, it looks like you are using more than that. I know in the...

Can anyone comment as to the benefit of these hood bumpers? If they serve a purpose, they'd certainly be worth the $7.60
