What are YOUR cons about YOUR BMW?

Mines is the cup holder under the armrest. What is the purpose of having that cup holder there if the armrest is hovering over it, I usually keep 2 bottles of water in my cup holders but since the armrest wont go down I just keep 1 now

I just use the passenger as the second cup holder

My only complaint would be the drive-by-wire.

6spd manual = problem solved.

My biggest peeve is that the fogs go off whenever I hit the high beams. I know it can be reprogramed but I'm far too cheap to get that done.

Delete that armrest.. one of my favorite mods ive ever done

I kept accidentally turning on the seat heaters before I disconnected them shits. And when my AC is on its so parasitic it feels like my ebrake is on.

This. True I've not searched, but is there a way to make the doors stay open? (I have a 6spd ///).

If I had to pick something else, gas I guess but I mean, it is an M so it was expected.

It takes some extra work, people on here have done it. I wouldn't touch software programming with a 10ft pole though.
