Like the E46's when the temperature drops below 37F you get a warning light about possible ice on the road.

- Hidden OBC functions
- Pressing DTC button does not turn off DTC but rather it turns on DTC and DTC is a version of DSC that gives the car ability to be more instable before the stability system intervenes. (Sorry, I had to do this because I still see tons of people mixed up about this feature)

The reset button on the A/C when pressed after the car is off will use residual heat from the engine to keep the car warm. It really helps out in the winter when you have to make a 20-30 min stop inside a place.
I do,cos I've done my reading on the manual!

Thanks for the tip; good info is always appreciated. One thing though -- this information is in the manual. Everyone read the instructions, right?

For those without CA, you can still drive without the key fob inserted in the slot.

I was surprised to find out that 'Comfort Access' involves rubbing the door handle vigourously for 5-10 seconds, as if you were trying to jerk it off, until the damned door actually unlocks :mad:

if you want the passenger side mirror to go down while you are un reverse mode, just put the mirror adjusting button on the left, otherwise put it on the right...

Yes, I think from what members have told me, I should go & see the dealer about it.

It has been discussed before. Try this: get in car and place key fob into the slot, start engine with key fob in slot, turn off engine, take key fob out of slot and press the start engine button without the key fob in slot. You have to do it real quick, it gives you 15-30 seconds to restart the engine after you take the key fob out.

Dont know what was the reason for this. Give it a try.

It`s so that you can give your keys to the officer and then still run him over.

After turning off the car flip the headlight stalk back and your headlights will stay lit for a few seconds after you lock the car.

Rear wiper on the E91 is designed to work on an intermittent basis---put the vehicle into reverse and the wiper operates continuously---it goes back to intermittent when you select a forward gear.
