Love
Most efficient engine on the market
Handling
Style
The brand itself

Hate

Overprice
lack of standard option
RFT
Side Passenger mirror dips too much when u revers
Plastic trim peel in most BMW
Sound system could be better
Reliability
Lack of selection in engine variant

Conclusion, I will probably still by another BMW despite the long list of hate...

Where in the manual say that? I flicked through the book and couldn't seem to find it. All I saw on the book was activate & deactivate the dipping mirrors, and nothing on adjustments.

I had given that a try before, doesn't seem to work. I will possibly try it again later today.

Me too. I'll jump into a 335d in a flash if it was available.

I just tried to adjust the mirror and no joy. Maybe it need to be coded.
