Wolz - thanks for your response, I have since had a fiddle with the mic volume within a call and it seems to be alot better.*
Not had any wheel skids in the rain as of but it feels like its on skates in the snow, think I would have to get used to which the best gears are to use as i previously owned a fwd car.*
Yeah the classic light is orange - been orange with bmw for a long time and the sport is white.
Also just a point, I thought the Bmw life option was only in conjunction with one of the proffessional media packs/sat nav???
