good list of standard features especially the 10-years of service instead of 4.

The first time it did it, I thought the car stalled. Soon figured it out. But with A/C on, it only stops for 30 seconds, then it starts up again as the A/C unit needs more power. But the annoying part is, it does this at each traffic light I stop at. I hope these cars have one heavy duty starter motors.
had an X3 loaner with it and had to turn it off every time I started the car it was so annoying. Now they've added the feature that remembers the last setting so you don't have to turn it off each time. The biggest annoyance with it was everytime it stops or starts it vibrates the car. If it were undetectable, I would live with it, but it certainly wasn't. I also don't want the starter cycling at every light since I do all local.
