    The 7 Series then...

    this comment from a reader is hilarious becasue it has a grain of truth. So easily done today "Did they 150% the front grill during design and forget to put it back?"

    Twin Exhausts

    I've did that and gone on to have my lunch time sandwiches. No trace of soot on finger. My pipes are clean For sure, very fine particulates are still being exhausted to the atmosphere. The filter has a minimum particulate size limit and cant completely block everything. But its barely detectable

    with a DPF, the car should have no soot stains. It is a soot filter after all Any diesel car that belches black smoke probably has its DPF removed or is pre DPF

    Why they directing the exhaust flow downwards ? There must be reasons for it

    I'm old enough to remember an exhaust pipe being a functional piece of kit, not an object of desire

    if they had quad pipes for a 2 litre engine, then atleast two of them would be blanked off or partially closed Exhaust tuning is a tricky thing, more of an art than a science. Maintaining gas velocity is important . If you open it up too much when its not needed then it could cause loss of power. Thats like what mobilejo was saying about the flaps, its a controlled system All this will be quaint when we are all driving BEVs

    Oil level above maximum warning

    maybe the oil was sloshing around in the sump under hard cornering. didn't somebody else have this problem here a couple of months ago??

    Wiper Speed

    hard to believe that a wiper blade hitting the A pillar is a design feature

    Too many thieves about !!

    hmm the new 3 series has comfort access using smartphone NFC technology. Motion sensors on your key-fob are yesterdays tech

    yeah it will cost an arm and a leg. The question is whats it worth to you. And this doesnt cover the cark park intercept scenario

    F10 to G30 - 530d M Sport

    I find carrying a 12 pack in each bag lowers my centre of gravity nicely, and adds to the balancing act

    well thats great news Betty I'm going to ask my dealer if I can have one. I dont see why they cant be issued to pre 3/18 cars as well

    its easier when you are carrying a heavy shopping bag in each hand. So you have to do a one legged courtesy plus kick. Its harder to do when your hands are free

    I know - I was just trying out different things and if I place my key-fob on a ledge 6 ft away, I cant open the car door . Comfort access only works if the key fob is less than 3 ft away. Which makes sense otherwise you would get mugged. So there is a limitation somehow The booster relay device fools the car into thinking the key fob is a few feet away. But why does the key fob have to be so long range that its signal can be picked up even through a couple of rooms ? I think thats just a legacy thing - the ability to lock / unlock your car from a 100 ft away. It was cool feature when remote locking first came out
