Question Things I wish to see changed in the Next Gen 3 series

1. When I press the Fog light button, I expect it to stay on, I don't want to keep pushing it every freaking time I get into the car.

2. The Auto Wiper button....Needs to have a position where I don't have to worry about pressing it every damn time the car turns off also. Another side note, it needs better placement, I can't tell if the damn things on or off because my steering wheel is blocking it.

3. Get stickier run flats! My Conti's suck!

Less isolation from engine bay.... my N52 is too tamed. I want the noise of my E46 back. Better dash material too.

I'm with you on #2. I can never see that green light. I always have to look to the side. This was like when I had my 05 545i, the heated wheel button was on the side of the wheel and I could never see it. They eventually moved that button to the front of the wheel.

Option to opt out of RFT's across the range.

Leather Standard. Vinyl is rubbish, people stopped taking to it since the 80's.

Cut the base price and each option at least 10%. $34,000 for a 328 with vinyl seats? Are you kidding?

Didn't the E46 coupes actually have a sound pipe from the intake manifold to the firewall to amplify the engine noise into the cabinet? I thought it sounded a little silly.

Why are you turning your fog lights on every time you get into the car? Just to annoy oncoming traffic? Or do you live in a permanent fog?

1. Agreed. There should be a position on the O-knob.

2. Fyi, you know if they're activated if you push it and the wipers sweep. If they don't, you're turning it off. Takes 0.5 secs to do a double tap. A permanent "On" mode seems unusual. I don't know a car that has that.

3. Dude, ditch the RFTs.
