3)Radio reception with the shark antenna sucks(I have the HK system) and that's an understatement.

4)When the car was a few weeks old I had it @ my dealer 3 times to solve a rattle in the steering column: Solved.

5)Overall noise on highwayspeeds, 60-80mph(tyres and bodywork) is subjectively too high imo. When > 90mph it's ok.....

6)Comfort Access sometimes is asleep (touching the doorgrip won't work)and opening the trunk/boot with the footsweep doesn't work 9/10 times.

7)Shifting fast WOT from 1st-2nd gear there still is a nanosecond delay in accelleration: Clutch delay valve. I want to get rid of that.

8)From cold start, starting up the iDrive/Satnav takes ages it seems....

But overall I am satisfied with my car.

Next gen RFT's have an improved ride, but still harsh over all.

My FM reception SUCKS too. We have "HD" radio in my area, but when I try to use it the reception is so bad it switches between HD and standard FM so much that it get's annoying as there are "ticks" and "repeats" during the switch.

I didn't mention this to the service adviser yet. I want my heater fixed first, then we can go after the smaller things.
FM reception in my 135i was excellent.
Yes, I too have HK.
