LOL. I see what you did there.

But let's unpack that. Classic two factor authentication (2FA) is "something you have" + "something you know." The response to rampant car theft in the mid/late...

I have no earthly clue.

But if I were a bettin' man, I would imagine there's a combination of firmware and an etched (immutable) ASIC on both sides of the radio that behaves like the "rolling...

LOL. That's brilliant.

Interesting wrinkle, though. Apparently, it takes two people to do the relay trick. One person needs to be physically close to the the "mark" with Relay Box A while the...

It's been a while, but I believe a tire-space was present in all F15 units, with the exception of 3rd row and PHEV units (because the underfloor area was occupied by a flip-seat or a high-voltage...

I wonder: maybe it's not that they aren't being sold, but rather that they're comprehensively on back-order, worldwide?

Look, I'll be honest: I've always regarded rubber mats as kind of stupid. ...

Wow. An entire web page full of downloadables and installers. Haven't seen one like that for 10 years. Too dangerous for my taste.

NP. Glad to help. Welcome to the club, Anjit!

A few tips, if I may be so bold:

1.) Read the sticky at the top. Especially the part about not burning down your garage (120v). it's in bright...

You say the "engine" was running. Was there exhaust (that is, internal combustion engine exhaust) coming out of the driver's side tailpipe? Check that. That one is always used for internal...

BTW, your BMW already makes fake engine sound. It's called BMW Active Sound, and the "vroom, vroom" comes through your speakers. It's done that for years and years. Surprise!

Right.

The question isn't whether there's warmer air; the question is where the air is warmer, colder. That's what the knob does:

As Quack hinted, you appear to have a fundamental misunderstanding of one knob. Sorry for being so blunt. You're saying "interior blend to cold." Well, there's no such thing as an "interior blend"...

Frankly, I'm kind of surprised that somebody doesn't sell an extraordinary aftermarket "donut" for $2,000, some engineering marvel made out of unobtanium. I can definitely understand why 98.5% of...
