Btw, why would you disable the headlight washers when you can simply not push the button that works them?
I believe that the headlamp washers work similar to the X3. If the headlamps are on and you pull the stalk for the windshield washer, the headlamps will also spray every 5 times. The button merely activates the automatic rain sensor, the same function as pushing the stalk up once in the older BMWs. The turn signals and wiper stalks are both electronic now.

I drove it a bit over the weekend and back to Charlottesville this evening. a couple observations:

1. The turn signal and cruise stalks are too close and similar in feel. I frequently hit the wrong one to do whatever I had intended. I might cancel the cruise while trying to signal for a lane change, and vice versa. The cruise stalk is a poor design; put it back on the buttons for the steering wheel!

2. The brakes work fine 8/10 times. The other two, the computer mis-guesses what I want to do and might grab onto the brakes as a function of the new brake features.

3. 30 miles to the gallon on the highway trip to Charlottesville, doing moderate (55-70mph) cruising. Great!

4. Sport seats are fantastic, but I'll have to coach my parents on not rubbing the side bolsters upon entry and exit.

5. The previous owner must've had kids. I wish we didn't have the ugly plastic carseat anchors in the backseats along with the special middle seat belt.

I will have to wait the long wait until I can go home and drive it some more! Maybe take advantage of the sport package

Nice 2006 BMW 325 by the way. That was my first choice before I purchased my 530i, but i found the interior a little small.

That is true. All new BMWs and MINIs work like that.

Although it is my mom's car there actually is no purse there on the passenger seat. What you see is the black cover to the fusebox located in the back of the glovebox. I had also taken out everything from the glovebox, including a cell charger. I was pulling the fuse to the headlamp washers. (I have this thing with small mods. With the Civic, I yanked out the fuse that lit up the DRLs)
