My 08 has a optional automatic codriver from germany, heidi, she adds 110 lbs to the mix but is a great tension reliever and worth every penny.

Didn't know it would make me look out the window every single night before bed to make sure the garage door is closed and also to open it each time I return home to ensure its still there when driving the X6.

I didn't know that by pressing down the iDrive knob you can advance to the next song on your iphone.

Wait what?! Just the other day I was thinkin, man, when cruising, I'm tired of bringing my hand back up to the wheel to skip tracks.

EDIT: Mind you, I've got an 08, not sure if this applies to CCC as well.

If you brake really hard the brake lights flash.

It is possible to get a dead body into the trunk of the E93 with the roof down.

I actually waited quite a bit before posting this, as I was sure some guys were going to set me on fire for not knowing this fact! Hopefully it works for you...it's a great feature.

No. I refuse to tell you how I know that.

So how exactly does it work? Do I just press straight down on the knob? What mode/screen does it have to be on? ...This is revolutionary.

I select my iphone on external devices. Then all you do is press straight down. If you do not select your iphone, it won't change the song. Hope it works! I found out by accident when I rested my arm on the knob!

They do flash, I've seen it on track. And I'm not talking about the hazard/emergency yellow lights that come on when you come to a near halt after braking hard. It might be different for US cars. Previous generation BMWs had higher intensity brake lights that come on, but most current gen BMWs with LED lights flash for Brake Force Display.

never seen that and have been on the track plenty of times with other m3s. would assume they are braking hard enough to activate this.

Don't even have this option, guess this is a no-go for the 08s. Back to skipping tracks on the steering wheel controls... like a caveman.

It might be different for US cars. See video below, forward to 0m29s

or maybe i need to pay attention better. dont think i actually look much at the car ahead as it tends to make you follow a poor line if they are doing it.

Don't really have to look for it as such, if it comes on it catches your eyes or your peripheral vision, which I guess is its purpose. I read somewhere that US cars have flashing BFD disabled.
