There are whole threads on this with some great suggestions on what to program on them.

Me personally? I have phone #'s, split screen, night mode nav and some addresses I re-use a lot too.

Well there you go, just like that - gotta love this board

I just bought my M about a month ago and hadn't realized I could program specific destinations to the buttons (don't think it was one of the examples in the manual.) Now I've got a use for those buttons - just need to keep to simple to just a few so I won't forget which is for what.

Nice thread, OP.

The "ALL" function for the air con. I usually drive alone (M3 drivers have no friends, etc.) so it's completely useless to me, unless I want my briefcase to be sitting in a different climate.

And while I'm on the topic, why is there a hot/cold dial above the AC vents, when I can adjust the temperature?? That is a layer of redundancy that is simply inexplicable.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the hot/cold dial on the AC Vents...I can have it nice and toasty on my feet, and keep cool air blowing on my face...

Ok, I'm done now...
