Man, get on the phone RIGHT NOW, and fill up one of these last few production slots for an e92! Ha ha ha...

Seriously, though, really sorry for your misfortune, but very glad for you that you're getting full value AND that you're (apparently) OK. Good luck to you.

lol, i think the underside trunk handle has been in most bmw's since the early 90's. i use it on my 96 323i touring all the time. i do miss the glove box flash light though.

BMW puts door handles on its cars doors as well, and gravity will take care of the hood which means there's never a need to pepper body work with fingerprints and palm prints.

I just purchased a 2013 M3. Just like every new car I can't wait to discover what features are hidden by those weaselly engineers and never mentioned in the manual or by the salesperson. I have a Toyota Tundra that I only discovered the center console will move forwards after being told about the feature on BMW's, and on my Maxima I was driving along and with my arm on the center console when I found a button that made the console pop up and forward into a much more comfortable arm rest.

I feel so honored that my 04 325i has the same trunk handles as the all mighty M3... But unfortunately I would like to know what this lock for 5 seconds feature does? I bet it is something dumb.

My favorite item on my M3 is the 3 seconds on key fob to unlock trunk and the 3.25 seconds on key fob to start the Panic Alarm. Thanks BMW. You rock. I bet the guys who gave us that did Active Sound.

how about the electric seat buttons that lift the headrests! or press and hold your remote button to completely make your car convertible from the outside of the car!

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

I've been using either the metal portion under the license plate or grabbing the spoiler all this time (which leads to little finger marks on my trunk).

Just thought I'd pass this great/hidden feature along to others on the forum.

cheers,

Wow, my e90 didn't have these. Instead these were stuffed with $100 bills.

That's where the $1000 bills were stashed in mine.
