I have not come across a way to do this, and yet I find it odd that this car does not permit it. I was to believe that other dual-zone auto-climate control cars allow the left and right zones to be synced and operated together, using the driver's-side control to optionally create a single-zone auto-climate setting.

Is there a trick that I've missed to do this, or is this yet another "quirk" of the F56?

They do not synch automatically - ya gotta set each one. I asked my dealer and he said he has no idea why they don't, but he hears about it every day.

Simple to set both by the time you've pressed a button to combine them like in my mums avensis, you may have well have turned both dials-I am just glad I've got separate controls-real treat and look nice too!!! but a band might do the trick although it wouldn't look too good!

I see no need to synchronize them. Both are set to 20. If I need to warm up or cool off, I adjust the driver's side only, and everything is great. I don't notice that the passenger side temp is any different.

Don't really see a problem here.

This is a quirk that annoyed me in my BMW 118d as well. It'd be much better if the driver's knob controlled both sides until the passenger turned the knob. That's how it worked in a Peugeot I rented and it made so much sense. No sync buttons either.

I've been wondering about this

But I suspect that the car can sense that there is no passenger ...

I will do a test by setting the passenger side too low and driver too high and see if there is a difference while there is not passenger

No they don't synchronise. Just keep yours how you want it and if you feel the need adjust the other side to the same. Just glad to have divided sides my r series didn't!
