Ill apologise now thunder7 but the fact it won't chime on open and lock is imho a fantastic bonus. Cars doing that drove me nuts on our visits to the USA. Cheep cheep great!noise pollution!
...and you can't give a quick toot, only a big parp!HORN !!!
Press the horn.. and nothing happens for 1/2 a second. I have to figure it's computer controlled. It doesn't react instantly.
And you cannot just press it anywhere. Seems like you need to apply pressure in just the right place.
oh man, the hatch scared the **** out of me the first time I closed it.I don't like the way the hatch really slams shut unless you drop it form about 3cm.
Auto wipers are rubbish.
Auto lights are too sensitive.
Far too complicated to navigate things like the stereo.
There is no CD player, even though I hardly used it in my r56.
No dip stick. Need to burn fuel to check the level.
TPMS - totally OTT and an expense we don't need.
It needs washed!
This looks SO negative but I love my car ��
The smearing im talking about is caused by the inadequate door seals trapping dirt which spreads onto the glass when you open thr widow. Its nothing to do with the upright windscreen. The run off of water from the windscreen across the side windows has been fixed on the f56 with the introduction of a channel down the sides of the a pillar coversSide window smearing is a function of the styling and upright windscreen, so more airflow goes over the side windows than on more 'modernly'-styled cars.
It's a bit like claiming your stilettos aren't good for running.....
The problem is with the calcium they put on the roads during the winter (at least here in Canada). It gets in the door too and causes all kinds of problems, including a completely white side window when you roll your window down and up. I also guess that the calcium can't be good for the mechanical and electric parts inside the door.They don't really seal they let water down the inside of the door and out the drain holes in the bottom,!not a problem for me at all.
Calcium and salt have exactly the same effect and the same associated problems.Iagree with the engine comments prowillys. What a sound. Like a Porsche. Fab. Cgingras think yourself lucky they use calcium. here in the uk they use salt which rusts everything. Motorbike will go to bed soon due to salt!, it's a nightmare!
