Exclamation Radio's 1-8 Buttons are touch sensitive!?

Wow,

I've had my car for about 7k miles, and today I realized a new thing about my f30!

The entertainment system's buttons (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) are all touch-sensitive. Probably all of you guys have realized this by now, but I usually used to push them in, like any other regular button, until I realized that they will activate if you just hover your finger on top of them!!!

You just have to high light the function you want, and the press and hold the button.

Didn't know that. Just knew if you hovered it would show what's programmed in.
