Even compared to the E90? I found it to be a much more classy E60-like sound from the doors compared to the old model, so I was pleased when test driving.

I came from a Mercedes E class - very solid doors

Thanks for the heads up
Pretty much in every car I drive I put the seat position as low as it will go, and I like the backrest nearly straight up. I then adjust the headrest so that it's very near the back of my head, so that my head is almost touching it.

I've tried so many different settings on my seat and couldn't find the spot I wanted. Then, I started raising the seat base higher and higher, and finally, AHA! I'm somewhere a bit higher than midway. I've had it there now for a few days and find that I'm not fiddling with it much.
Give it a shot you may like it.

I don't use lumbar support as it doesn't help my back, and I do have lower back issues. I pump the lumbar up to about halfway, then lower it to it's lowest position, then let all the air out. It seems to give a good position.

That would be good too.

After living with my 3 for a couple of weeks, I'm not bothered by the radio/acc being on after shut down. It's one of those things where it becomes second nature. Put the car in "P", push 'stop', push the button again.


I'm not completely sold on comfort access. It is some quirks that are not convenient nor comforting, specifically it doesn't work every time. On more than a few occasions my finger is on the ridge and the doors won't unlock. I'm standing there trying and trying to unlock my doors with the CA method. Then if I switch hands, it WORKS. WTF! Sometimes it's a switch to my left hand, others to my right.

Also on a few occasions, I get out of the car, use the ridge to lock it up, but I forgot something, so I use the ridge to unlock, NOTHING. Try it again, nothing.
Wait a few more seconds, then it opens.
It seems that once you lock the car with CA, 5-10 seconds have to pass before you touch it again for it to work. If you touch it too quickly after locking, it doesn't respond.

I've also noticed that raising the seat has improved comfort. I still haven't found a perfect position (I guess that's why you need the incremental adjustments that power seats offer), but I'm overall happy with the seating position.

I've driven 2,500 miles in a bit over two months and it's a very comfortable cruiser. It's miles better (no pun intended) than the F10 528i I had before.

Mine works perfectly 100% of the time. To open, I grab the handle, it unlocks and in I go. To lock, I touch the ridge, it locks and off I go. If I forgot something, I grab the handle again, it will unlock. I get what I forgot, touch the ridge, it locks, and off I go.

Now- the "kick your foot under the trunk to open" feature is totally hit or miss. I'm getting better at it though, but I'm not convinced I know the "secret"since I cant get it to work 100% of the time like the doors.

Not a fan of the double pull to get out of the car...

That and my car did the dreaded stall after the ASS kicked in again. Sitting at a red light it kicked in like it should, then after 10 sec or so the car shut off and i got the warning message. Had to start it myself and put it in drive. Not fun given it was right as the light changed.

Yes, they are the standard tire, AS is optional.

But not all sport lines get performance summer tires, many of them got summer touring tires.
All tire types are RFT.

Ah, I see it. I ordered summer performance tires but I think that was part with the 401(?) 19" staggered wheels.Glad I did. Didn't realize the AS were standard.
