That happened to me this weekend on my way to SoCal Euro pacing with some M3's and M5's. Why did it do that for no reason!?

Get/or make a short throw clutch stop. Then you can sit back normally and still reach the clutch.

I don't "hate" anything about my E90. I dislike the location of the window switches even though my LCI model improves over the 2006-2008 models. I dislike that BMW hides the LED for the rain sensor wipers behind the steering wheel rim. Power seats should be standard. I wish the trunk popped open when unlocked. That's about it.

By the way, for those of you not up on the F30 model, power memory seats are now std as is Idrive and Bluetooth.

-Lack of a trunk keyhole on my 2011 E90, makes me have to carry jumper cables in my back seat foot area.
-windows that scratch up tint
-can't keep air recirculate option always turned on, it resets once the car is off.
-no jack and spare tire kit
-trunk doesn't auto open
-random electronic glitches
-folding rear seats not standard

The climate control system. Why can't I just let in outside air?? And a button to sync the two temperatures would be nice.

The location of the Aux stereo plug. It's in the worst place in the whole car.

RFTs suck but at least they can be changed...

- no sunglasses holder
- no auto unlock when going to park (I know, get it coded)
- audio controls on the steering wheel split up. Every other car I've had has the volume and track +/- on the same (left) side.

Randomly squeaking brakes at low speeds, even though the pads are all in good shape. Very annoying.

Are you used to driving a coupe? My previous car was a coupe and I had the same issue, because the coupe had buttons slightly towards the rear. But after a few weeks I got used to this one and haven't had the issue in a while

+1 deff interested in an m3 cluster to change that

I hate the of the wind sound on the e92 at highway speed especially when you the put the window down then up the seal is tighter if you re-close the door still Kinda weird to hear on an $50k+ MSRP car

I too hate the lack of sunglasses holder but my biggest gripe is that the Nav on the iDrive, the zoom in/out control seems backwards. I'd expect "lefty loosy/righty tighty" would be the expected behavior of the zoom

The cheap plastic they used for the console. The shit peals horribly. Also, the horrible design of the cup holders in the dash. Great idea, except when it jams or you have a very tall passenger.

I love that feature. Easy access for both front occupants.

Something I've always hated is

1) that you have to have the cold weather package to have folding seats. WTF!!?!

2) Non-standard xenon's. Really!?! isn't it more expensive to have a separate design?

1) Everything about the iDrive system is so hard to use and navigate through
2) Lack of button on climate control system to sync the temperatures
3) Run flat tires (harsh ride quality) / lack of spare tire
4) Ridiculously long doors (e92)
5) Window controls placement
6) Excessive plastic trays/covers in the engine bay
7) Cup holder design (passengers' knees always hits)
8) Lug bolts instead of studs/nuts
9) No engine oil dipstick
10) Seat belt arm
11) Notchy gearbox (MT)
12) Placement of door unlock button
13) Lack of multifunction screen in gauge cluster
14) Lack of volume level display
15) Car appears lower in the rear (more wheel gap in the front)
16) How much everything costs!
17) How the door sills manage to get extremely dirty every time it rains
18) Quality of materials used in the interior compared with Lexus / other Japanese car manufactures

Other than that the car is awesome!
