Agreed. Same here, except *might* be off by 1 mph from the speed check radars on occasion. I think it's because the radar stands aren't calibrated well, or they read high intentionally. But my v= always agrees with my GPS speedo.

I discoverd this while at a dates house and she was in my lap. Guess enough weight and the unlock button is pressed. Thank god I didnt spend the night, the interior only got wet, not flooded.

The really annoying shit is, with the default coding, you dont even get the option to use the lock button to close everything.

There are some errors as with anything....such as needing lights on for the marker to show what cruise was set to, the button says "rest" which uses residual heat, etc

Does the car really apply the brakes and brake lights, on cruise control?

In the e91 there is a little clip under the cargo cover to hold your umbrella.

What I know now, but didn't at the time.

I'm driving on hwy up into the hills. Outside temp approx 2 - 3C (37F), and this yellow warning icon appears on the heads up display. At the time, looked like a gear sprocket, which in turn freaked me out, and pulled into emergency lane, thinking, limp mode wasn't far away.

A quick search on mobile to Mr google revealed the real truth, thankfully. Not to say I didn't use some colourful words before that enlightenment

BMW has had this function in nearly every model of its cars since the mid 1980's
