Any car with an electric fan does this and the fan is usually cut off at highway speed to reduce drag.

The most useless I the 10 is the hand holds to close the trunk. Why could they not have had a indent at the edge.

They do flash!

On Euro cars stages of brake light:

Normal Brake lights.
Brake force display - adds in fog lights.
Brake force display 2 - flashes lights.
Adds in Hazard lights.

One of these I don't know what it does:

One thing I really didnt know was how much she would get me to stare at her. When I'm walking away, I turn around. When she is in the driveway, I stop and stare. There is something alluring about this car and the sheer beauty. I cannot stop.

Interesting. When I see Euro M3 track videos, I always notice the flash, and wondered about that.

Maybe you should look into those anger management courses mentioned earlier.

Anger management issues were solved as soon as I confirmed the trunk capacity.

I fit 3 golf bags, 1 was a light weight one but had all the clubs. I couldn't believe it. And we were not late for our tee time.

- I can fit the trunk lid of an Evo X GSR in the trunk of my E92 with the seats folded down... easily.

- The excitement of getting springs and new wheels installed will cause you to forget your keys (that you normally just leave in your pocket without thought thanks to CA) in the shop... causing you to momentarily freak out wondering why the hell your newly sexified beast won't start.

- This newly sexified beast will finally get you noticed by that GT-R you've seen a few times around town, as he will follow you home to show his son riding shotgun your sexified beast

Sure they do! Along with the cover for the sat nav antennae, they make for a rather realistic "I'm a shark!" display. Jeremy Clarkson loves that in a car. It must have been his personal suggestion.

Headlights in auto mode = turn lamp engaged and swivel headlights in turns
Manual mode = none of that nonsense

Also in manual/off = no halos upon unlock with fob.

Two weeks ago, was quite pleased that I could fit three full-sized 19" wheels and tires into the back seat of the vert, and one into the trunk!

Now, to get a floor-jack, torque wrench, and air compressor, and I'm ready for the next Track Day.

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

Noticed, upon backing up in reverse yesterday, over the distance of a few parking spaces, that the orange-display " v = xx " indicated I was driving "1" mile per hour -- in reverse!

Haven not yet tested:
a) how high this number will go
b) whether the odometer # decreases (might be a challenge to drive in reverse for a tenth of a mile to find out. If I do that in a big parking lot, someone might call the County Health Dept to investigate.)

Does anyone else know?

So today my buddy with his '11 E90 DCT opens his glove compartment and asks what appears to be a levelling knob of some sort is. I said I didn't know as all I have in my '08 E90 is what appears to be a trunk lock/unlock button (I'm assuming for valet mode)

Any ideas as to what that is? It looks to be a manual headlight leveling system but what do I know... I drive an '08.
