Is there some way to re-hook the net so that it will hold them? The net doesn't do me much good lying on the cargo floor.

Do they just velcro to the trunk wall?

ETA: Never mind, I suspect they do, but the left trunk wall has a recess in it that shortens the length of the wall, and the right side has the elastic built-in strap. Maybe a small net on the left could hold my detail spray and microfibers.

I see also that the net on the cargo floor is two-part, i.e., there is a small portion like a pouch on top of the larger. Things can be slid in there. And I see two rings on the floor of the trunk farther in. Anybody know what those are intended for?

Also, didn't see this mentioned, but there's another outlet in the trunk on the left side covered by a plastic housing with a white "+" on it. I thought it might be for a first-aid kit, but it's an outlet like the cigarette lighter.

Yes, they do velcro-I bought 3 different sizes to fit the 3 different "walls"- they fit perfectly. The one on the back of the seat holds my sunshade in the winter (80cm). The one on the right holds tire shine can, glass cleaner and my maintenance/reference binder. The one on the left holds a bag of microfibers, rinseless wash and quick detailer. All is held perfectly and tightly. It cleaned up the trunk nicely.

Discovered that, if you are listening to another music source, say a USB drive in the console port, you can touch one of the speed buttons to which you have a radio station saved, and the system will switch to it. You don't have to change the mode to AM/FM first.

Also I saved my trip computer to Button 8. Then I tried the voice command, "Display, trip computer," and dang me, it worked! (When I tried "Display, tire pressure," though, the system displayed the onboard owner's manual page about the TPMS. Still got some bugs to work out on that.)

Yesterday afternoon I thought I'd give the Auto Stop-Start a real try. It is pretty seamless. And flicking the transmission lever to the left while the engine is off does restart the engine -- but it doesn't re-disable the A.S.S. You still have to press that button.

Contrary to urban legend, that long slot there is not a built-in paper shredder.

My first full day with the 328i, driving out to the dealer with my old car's title and then running across the city to a wildlife park, I brought along and played a couple of my favorite CDs. Cool to be skimming along at 70 while the Amazing Rhythm Aces play "Fool For That Woman"!

I use a short cut for the TPM. Another one for time shifting the SiriusXM radio. One to call my wife and the trip computer. Plus a few other things.
