Can't get enough of F30 3 series info and material after configuring your F30 online today?
Have a crack at the F30 owner's manual then. Just in time to provide some great weekend reading material

There is a typo on page 276 in Coolant section, it talks about adding coolant but subsection paragraph states Adding Engine Oil

Residual heat function (REST button) is not mentioned, so probably not available. Pity.

REST kept the cabin warm for ~30 mins while engine is off. great in the winter if you are waiting in the car while your wife is in the convenience store.

Now that the 3 has stop start, I wonder what sort of systems run the AC and heat while at a traffic light. I would imagine an electric AC compressor and circulation of heating water with the existing electric water pump.

Anyone read the hood opening procedure. It states that you have to pul the lever twice to open the hood. The first pull releases the "engine" and the second pull allows the hood to be opened. Never seen this before on any other vehicle

Not sure what type, but in the manual in page 60 it says air flow is reduced....

Just read the manual...not much new. I guess that is BMW's way, subtle, small changes...

Saw several pages (starting from pg 109) devoted to "Active Cruise Control" which I thought was not available in the F30? Does anyone know more about this?
