I bet his boss got hot under the collar if he couldn't get to work.

I can't believe all the incendiary comments in this thread.

I think that car, 5 series, was made by BMW China JV Factory. Not Dingolfing. So it should have adapted to local conditions and customs.

No one reads the manual - it will be on your sun visor, in an obnoxious color, and you won't be able to remove it...

One of my Hindu friends at work bought a F30 LCI and we went out to the parking lot to check it out. There was some red markings on the front and I had incorrectly assumed it was a bug or otherwise some foreign debris. So I did what any good friend would do and licked my thumb and proceeded to remove the "smudge". I got about halfway through before it clicked. His wife had blessed it and basically removed it in front of him.

Oops. I felt like such a jackass.
