+1 The wipers are great.

I usually just press the auto button and let the sensor do the rest....

throttle response (at least for the NA) what was wrong with a wire, it has worked fine for the past 100 years.
louder engine and exhaust notes (speaking from a NA point of view)
valvetronic sucks, my engine sounds like crap
seats arnt sporty enough, sides don't stick out enough, i slide around too much
run flats a waste and no spare tire
BMW needs to go on a diet
carbon fiber interior trim that doesn't cost and arm and a leg standard for M package
LED angle eyes standard on 335 or what ever the premium model will be
Sat radio FREE, American cars come with it standard
folding rear seats as standard
Get rid of the cold weather package, let the people choose what options they want and don't want.
alarm as standard
more leg room in the back (i know its not a 5 series but for the average male driver who is at least 5-8 to 6-1 there is no way anyone can sit behind the driver.

thats all i can think of for now.

As long as it is in actual rain I love the sensor. The wipers themselves are great. If I'm on the freeway after rain/snow and I'm getting salty water kicked on my windshield however, the whole thing can get covered with water I can't see through and they won't go off most of the time, regardless of setting. Not the biggest deal though, I can always manually tap 'em on.

I find the rain sensor utterly useless and have to override it all the time.
PLEASE add an intermittant function in addition to the sensor

1. Put the door lock/unlock button on the driver's door (not in the center of the dash). That way when I get out of the car and forget to unlock the rear doors for the kids, I don't have to search my pocket for the key fob or lean all the way back into the car to unlock the doors.

2. A better steering wheel for the non-ZSP drivers.

3. A better stereo system.

If you want to pull the handle once press the door unlock, then the handle once to open it.

Or you can disable the auto locking function.

But why is it big deal?

I like the sensor, They just need to give us better wipres, and a somewhat less sensitive sensor.
