Truck stuff I knew but didn't know the door pocket popped out. I was thinking on my test drive that the utility was fairly poor on it considering the size but that would improve its usefulness for sure.

Haha, I thought the same thing when the forum uploaded the pics upside down for some reason...
then again, I do live in bizzaro-world where we drive on the ceiling

After years of owning japanese vehicles, this is my first BMW so little "niceties" like indented-handles on the trunk-lid and hooks to hang your grocery bags easily amuse me!!!

Never noticed the trunk indentions. But this is my most recently discovered gem. I thought the door slit was pretty useless. Even my stepdad even commented (when i went to visit and show off) "...Hmm, guess you won't be using this compartment very much will ya?" and now it houses my sunglasses.

Thanks for the tip. I've also found the button to open the hood and there is an engine in there.

Want to really blow your mind? Hold the lock button on your key for 5 secs while standing next to the car

My door compartments do not fold out. Is this a coupe thing?

Thanks OP! I had to check it out for myself. It feels weird going underhand to close the trunk when I've done it overhand my whole life. But if it saves fingerprints, so be it.

This got me thinking, I wonder what other cool features I'm missing out on. Granted, I'm not pushing the car to its limits when I'm driving either. I hope to go to M school for a little schooling since the latest the thread.

I also discovered there's no repeat option for a song on a USB unless you put one song in a folder and play that song. Supposedly, the 2008 M3s have it. I'm gonna try it with the iPod.

coming from an F10, the ability to switch tracks on the Ipod from the steering wheel as opposed to reaching over to the middle console is huge
