Tune in my DAB+ radio & listen to some nice music for a change, rather than the same repeats from mainstream FM stations.

Then organise my HUD's display. Then setup my iDrive screen display. Then whatever comes next. Lots of work to do!!!

Follow the owner's manual. I know some people say flog the guts out of it right from the word go, but I'd take more notice of what BMW recommends for its own cars.

Press and hold lock on the fob, should close all windows
Press and hold unlock on fob, should open all windows

Check auto-leveling system =

Or potentially tip it over and the car may right itself?

I wouldn't try that one though
