    See link. /RS2

    When I asked my dealer, they did not actually know how to do it, [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] and it was only when I experimented that I worked out the above sequence (I don't think its in the manual).

    That suggests to me that the default setting will allow the function.

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">It wasn't activated on my car at least. You should ask your dealer to get the full documentation of all cool car & key memory functions!

    Re: Reverse dip mirror and PDC

    I'll try this on my car soon and let you know (I live in a flat at the moment and can't be bothered to walk all the way down to the garage right now)

    It will be interesting because when I picked up my car (in Belgium) I noticed that the mirror wasn't dipping on reverse. After half an hour of them trying to set the option, which the tech insisted did not exist except for the 3 series (I have an M5) I remembered reading on bmwm5.com about having to flick the selector switch over to the driver's side for it to work.

    Upshot of the long story is that they could only find one reverse/mirror related option on their diagnostic machine and my car would not take the setting.

    I'll try out the steps anyway and let you know... not sure what will happen since when I flick the switch to passenger side the mirror immediately starts to move back up.

    ciao

    Re: Reverse dip mirror and PDC

    Neil, haven't you reached 1200 miles yet? I thought I was slow this time around, but you've had yours at least a week longer than me.

    Have you had a chance to use the SPORT button, what do you think?

    Do you have any issues with your HK system? 2nd time around I'm not so impressed with mine, doesn't seem to make much difference when you press the sound button. I wonder if they have changed the system since earlier cars.

    Re: Reverse dip mirror and PDC

    At least you have a 'Sound' button. We don't even get one of those on the convertible. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    Not enough room with all the other techno boll*x that's parked down there with the sport button, dsc, heated seats etc etc

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yes, you are right Steve! HK subwoofers and amps were changed 09/01 in the coupe. Probably with other crossovers to solve the problem with rattle from the subs in the rear deck. /RS2

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I've been way busy at work owing to our main compeditor going bust so no time to drive much. I noticed a buzz/vibrate yesterday but I think it was distortion because of a crap quality MD record. It no way as good as the system in the 330i thats for sure. I think I'll upgrade the system though but keep the standard head unit.

    Cheers,
    Neil.

Now I'll have to consider an upgrade.

    Just bought a couple more B&W DM 601 S3s for my home setup, bliss..

    Doesn't work on mine but when it goes in the 1200 service I'll ask them specifically about this.

    Regards,

    Steve,
    I've got those speakers aswell, they are fantastic. How have you amped them up? I have an individual amp driving each speaker and the quality is outstanding.

    Cheers,
    Neil.

    Cheers Neil, I take it you can adjust how much it does this by, like you can in the M3

    Re: Reverse dip mirror and PDC

    OK. I got the settings done to my car that let you modify the position. It works really well. Also got the auto locking and two stage door opening activated- very cool. Milcars did
    it free with my 1200 mile service.

    Regards,
    Neil.

    Re: Reverse dip mirror and PDC

    I have the same problem, my subwoofer rattles like no tomorrow. Sometimes it makes a high pitch rattle which is probably the most annoying thing I have ever experienced in my life. If I press down on the divider behind the backseats the rattling stops. It got so bad that I had to actually disconnect the subwoofer. Im very close to stripping out the whole system and putting in an aftermarket one. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

    After trying to fix this problem I came to the conclusion that the panel which the subwoofer is stuck to is just to flimsy. Its not rigid enough to have a subwoofer stuck to it. I think Im going to get a box that sits on the floor of the boot.
