New to F15

Just sold my old 2001 E53 and picked up a 2015 F15. After going through the manual looks like I have a lot to learn.

Any advice is welcome.

Congrats on the purchase. Continue to read the manual. And know that there are a lot of BMW Genius videos on youtube that might be helpful, too.

Congratulations also!
My experience in around 10k miles is that the simple operational stuff is as easy as any modern Beemer, but I keep learning deeper things from time to time. The phone connectivity and music being my latest delight as I finally figured out how to properly get music from Android without spending too much time with phone in hand!
The i-Drive functions go deep and if I’m waiting in the car I’ll use the time to refresh my knowledge of the functions. There’s a lot to know, I think.
Overall, my F15 feels very much like the sorted variety of vehicle - nothing dramatic, nothing much to go wrong, it does the job without fuss. Maybe that’s why this forum is quiet compared to E53 land - where we have a lot more to keep us engaged?!
