(Auto transmission) in sport mode, if you down shift and accelerate rapidly the brakes will be prepared for you in anticipation of you needing to brake hard. Much less brake travel and harder braking.

Not sure what the technical name for the function is.

Find a good strip of pavement (hopefully it's a nice warm and dry outside, to get the tire temperature up to where it's just right). Activate the eco-pro mode, and floor the gas. It won't go over 40mph for the first 2 minutes.

Had this on my E92. Mom needed my car for something, reached over to turn on the heated seat, accidentally swiped finger across first 2 buttons, hilarity ensued.

Called me in a panic saying she broke my navigation. Good laugh enjoyed by all

For those with Stop/Go adaptive cruise control .......if you press the distance (up or down buttons) for a few seconds it switches off the adaptive bit and acts like normal cruise control. Press and hold again to re-engage. Cool

So I've always disliked BMW's remote system due to the fact that you can unlock everything (simultaneously) from the key fob, but not lock it. Was looking forward to some change with the f30 system. Well, you still can't do it through the key fob, but apparently you can accomplish the same thing via comfort access. Hold your finger down on the ribbed "lock" area on the door handle, and everything locks simultaneously.

I would be more impressed if it matched on a downshift where it will facilitate smooth changes with constant velocity.
To be honest though I was fairly impressed that the cruise control remains active despite using the clutch and subsequently changing gear.

It is disabled by default in the US. Works in other regions.

Good. Now we're on the same page. If you have comfort access, you are able to do so (simaltaneously close/lock all the windows, doors and sunroof) by holding your finger on the ribbed lock area on the exterior door handle.

Ahhh, close/lock - some confusion over terminology there;

Anyway. I can close my windows, sunroof and fold mirrors in by pressing lock button and then immediately pressing and holding it again.
Same works with unlock to open them. Once you release the button it stops windows and sunroof where they've got to (mirrors continue once started and fold fully and also open on single press without holding for unlock).

Would be more convenient if on close I could simply hold to start and release and it continues to close otherwise you have to stand there waiting tediously.

Not work on yours? Regional difference again?

Yes, it's regional. In US cars by default, you can only roll the windows down by holding the fob button, that's it.

To get the functions you mention (mirrors and close windows via fob or CA), you have to enable them by coding the car.

Mirror close/open & windows close has been requested and coded in every single car that I've coded, about 20 cars so far. It's the most popular one along with the TPMS pressure/temperature display.

Obviously this isn't something I would class as a useful bit of information but I'll share anyway...

I took the rare opportunity of a day off and a break in the weather to wash the car. When I was cleaning the soot off the exhaust pipe with a brush, the comfort access triggered the boot release. Ok, it's not the most practical way of doing it but it was an unexpected side effect

I did the same thing! Now, I always make sure I don't have the key fob with me when I wash the car!

Looks good but that's a LOT of blue in there. I got burl wood inside so it looks completely different. Is the steering column in your car EB also?

. The only thing blue in the picture and in my interior is that tiny blue horizontal stripe, and of course the logo on the wheel. Maybe the lighting is throwing you off?
