Smile New Bimmer owner from a Ford Fiesta 54reg!

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and thought i'd say hello and get some tips on my new ride i recently bought. I'm happy to say i've moved on from a old Ford Fiesta 54 plate 1.4 to a BMW 320D SE 62 reg and i couldn't be happier!


But as it's quite an upgrade, am having some trouble making the most of the features, i noticed there's some sort of camera on the windshield, and i was woundering how to make use of the collision detection, lane detection and all that fancy stuff.

Just recently worked out the cruise control

Watch the videos. These apply to the US market, I assume there's something similar for the UK.

Ha! Oddly enough, I made the same upgrade -- Fiesta to (first-ever) BMW -- 3 weeks ago. Quite a difference, eh?

No way! It is indeed, from the speed to the tech, after working it out, the amount i spent on insurance and repair cost on the fiesta, i should of bought a new car ages ago! How's your experience?

Let's just say I'm not missing that Ford transmission or turning circle.

I had zero mechanical problems with mine, though. It really was a good little car. Just not remotely in the same class as my new ride.
