It's like driving my '77 Jeep Wagoneer with it's big 'ol V8 all over again. I distinctly remember my moms 325i doing this same thing back in the 80's.
Manual specifically states not to "warm up" the car, but drive it gently until oil temps come up.

1) The power button actually adds power like a turbo button in my video games
2) I would have to fill up all the time, like every 190 miles or so which is costing a lot of money
3) Insurance is expensive
4) car washes are expensive on a weekly basis
5) replacing expensive tires after just 15k miles
6) being a "douch bag" for owning a m3
7) having to walk sooooo far after parking my car at Walmart
8) finding comfortable driving gloves which complements my steering wheel
9) why so many mini van's want to prove to me just how fast they are
10) wonder why they have shifters on the steering wheel when the car shifts itself. (Except when the "s" shows up and then it won't)

Windows sense obstructions when going up and stop, so you wont

She was driving highway speeds on D5 and mashed the pedal all the way down (to the second to last point of resistance) and it downshifted to 4th, she mashed it even harder to the last point of resistance and it downshifted to 3rd @ 7800rpm.

Edit: This is what i am referring to: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83497
The kick down? Its in all automatic and dct bmws. Its old. Very old.

Mine does for some reason.

But what the hell is that tpms button next to the hazards?! I know i should read the manual. There just isnt any time for that.

LOL.

(good thing it has a big trunk.)
I pull up the rear headrest and hang the cleaning on the bar underneath. I'm picky about those things staying even, though, so gotta push it back down when you get home.
Actually, I do this on my E90 and my E92 is just getting off the boat, so I'm not sure it will also have rising headrests. Can't remember from my ED trip.

No joke. Sometimes it doesn't kick in at all, which pisses me off. Should be infallible since it's German engineering. I shouldn't have to pull out my iPhone when I paid extra thousands for that nav so I could dodge traffic.

Surprised no one hit this one with a "lolwut?!"

Not sure if serious, but... Power button just changes throttle sensitivity.

Not sure if you mean this with "ceiling hook" but my E92 does have a hook incorporated into the rear passenger ceiling handle. Big enough for a couple hangers' worth of dry cleaning.

So I've got a early 2011 with the Red bulb. I don't think my car is prewired as I think they stopped that in '09. Am I to assume that since the bulb is there that my car has the alarm and maybe a fuse is blown or do they put that bulb on all 3's?
