While RWD is ideal for "high end sports cars" (well, AWD is probably ideal, but we're talking RWD vs. FWD), I'm not sure it's all that crucial where the power isn't too crazy. I've had some fun to...

Right, you need to pair to get BT to work. USB cable shouldn't matter, then.

If you want music, and you have an iPhone,m you need BMW's special cable that plugs into both the USB and AUX ports. I...

On a budget, though, a 28i without packages may still have been a good deal.

Yeah, there definitely seems to be a lot of comments along the the lines of "you definitely want to get the 35i", which I didn't do -- mostly because I bought used, and this was what was there. :D

This is my first BMW. For me, this is plenty fast even as a 28i (although, still a 2013 M-sport), handles very well, and has just enough room. I love the practicality of a hatchback.

Was that for the headlight or fogs? Headlight, I assume. Would the fogs still suffer the flickering problems?

Are you going to go back to halogen bulbs? I have tried Philips Xtreme Vision...

If it matters, the LED lights are not street legal, at least for headlights. (Not sure about the fogs.)

Yeah, I gave up on Eco Pro. It makes the car un-fun to drive. I don't recall any additional vibrations, though.

The ASS defaults to "on". I would like to code that to default off.

Speaker installation

I installed new speakers! Not too difficult, although, as always, I had a couple of problems in installation.

What update, Apple update? If you're in a garage, and the phone can't see the GPS satellites, it has to locate (kind of triangulate) using nearby cell towers or something, and that is very inexact.

HUH. I heard a clunking sound a while ago (month or so?) that seems similar to what y'all describe, but thought maybe a branch got stuck in the wheel well or something. Haven't noticed it lately.

Sure, have them check it out. Although, it does have a thing where the alternator is supposed to kick in during braking to do some regen. Shouldn't that be felt? Good luck.

I got Driveguard tires, as from reading around, it seemed like these would give a more comfortable ride than the other RFT tires. They are actually pretty decent. Not "high performance" sports car...

Huh... shows up for me. Was the letter sent out a long time ago? I guess I wouldn't have gotten one, buying it used. I did get the thermostat one.

So, does that mean, though, that they won't do...

Yeah, if just the driver's door is unlocked, I'm not sure if that's enough to unlock the trunk. I tap the unlock on the fob twice to unlock all doors, and then I can open the hatch by hand. My...

After driving more, the trip computer is back to 21mpg, as it was before. Oh well, so much for my hopes of better mileage!

Someone had posted that the system keeps close track of how much energy goes in and out of the battery and thus it knows if the capacity is low. ...

In my experience in car ownership, getting only 3 years on a battery is not all that unusual. With the stupid start-stop system, it has to be even worse. But at 4, I would start to worry.

I thought the 28i was supposed to have the electric steering? At any rate, mine seems pretty easy to turn, but I have sDrive if that is the difference.
