i guess if you're a remedial class alumni it's hard to figure out...

was your other thread about this not enough?

Auto high beams, neat feature but doesn't work all that great. I still wind up flipping the switch because they are still on while someone is making a turn towards me.

I dont care if you live in Alaska, tint at some level is a must. If not for the heat protection then at least for the aesthetic value.

You're preaching to the choir on it.

+1 on the Auto Stop/Start. I understand WHY it is there, but does anybody actually use it? The ski-bag/pass-thru on the rear seat thing may be a close second though...

Agreed. Although, I live in Denver and have 5% just because I like the look of dark tint. But even 35% is better then nothing.

either way... a little pointless.
They did this because drink containers are shaped differently in Europe.

Oh yeah forgot about the ski bag pass thru. I've removed the whole set up in my last 2 cars. Gets used as a port system for my subs in the trunk.

I disagree. The pass through allows skis, and hockey sticks (not applicable everywhere) while also allowing the front seats to be moved back to accomodate tall people

My vote goes for the automatic wipers as they never seem to be the right speed.

Ski pass through is useful.

But yeah the stop start scared the crap out of me after dropping into neutral at a light. First I thought I stalled, and after that I had a moment of complete uncertainty as to how much throttle to give the car, etc. It might make more sense in the DCT because you guys don't use a clutch pedal anyway. But in a manual it really makes almost not sense at all.

I question the extra wear and tear on the starter module as well.

The starters are ultra heavy duty in start stop applications ie: they will fail at 50,001 miles

How about the center vent temp mixture flap?

That's actually a good one. Since my 2005 325i, through my 2008 335i and now with the M3, I have honestly never used the CD player in any of them

Just thought of another one too, that touch ribbon thing below the memory buttons, almost never used that either...
