Are you sure the compressor is actually running? For many years our cars have had A/C enabled year-round, and this is shown by the lighted button. However, the light just means that A/C could run if...

Well, there is that.

It's a bit sad that there aren't any really good colors available. I mean, these cars would be amazing in Atacama Yellow or some other bright color. For BMW, this seems to be...

I've never understood when people order lower-profile tires (which is a consequence of larger wheels) then complain about a harsher ride. A firmer ride is literally the purpose of lower-profile tires.

I'd be surprised. BMW's have had amber instrument lighting for nearly as long as they've had kidney grilles and Hoffmeisterknecks.

That's not a battery charger. Nobody ever refers to such a thing as a "battery charger", except perhaps you. That's an external battery, that can be used to charge other stuff.

If you walk into a Target and ask to be shown where the "battery chargers" are, they'll take you to a very different part of the store from where they'd...

Huh. I have never seen this on my car.

Huh. This was with an M-car on performance summer tires? My experience with performance summer tires on cold roads, even when perfectly dry, is that they have very poor grip.
