I finally found a good use for Eco-Pro mode

I've had my 335i for about a month now and it wasn't until today that I found a good use for the Eco-Pro mode. We went strawberry picking and I drove home from the farm with several full baskets of berries in the trunk (boot for our Brit friends) without spilling a single one.

Cool.

I thought sure you were going to tell us a story of how one could drive the car -- using eco-pro mode -- ever so gently through the strawberry patch picking berries from the driver's seat. LOL

Anyway, enjoy the fruit of your labor.

Also good to use with a nervous mother-in-law in the car. She normally whines and moans during acceleration, Eco-pro solves that and the whining has reduced.

It should get officially renamed to berry-transport mode, makes much more sense to me..
