I just found a couple of amazing things out about my BMW. First when the turn signal is turned on there are lights on the side of the car that light up :mrgreen: . And with the speedo if you hold down the reset switch and then turn the starter to position #1 (radio on only) the milage and tripometer will go away and be replaced with a series of "tests" 1-15; if you hold down the reset button on # 15 until beside it, it displays "LvOff" you can use your speedo to digitally display a bunch of different things (like RPM, feul, speed in km/h ect.). I thought that was interesting.
I understand all of the mileage stuff as tricks...but did you seriously just notice for the first time that the side view mirrors light up from the turning signal? :laughing: :doh:
I actually think he meant these:
Not sure if that's what his car looked like...but you only now just noticed that?
Ahhh...nicely played :laughing:
Still though, pretty hard to miss if you own the car...
ya those lights I thought they were reflectors lol.
heh...yeah, those are mandated by european law, i think. at least i've seen then on all european/japanese cars, and not american. :ohcrap:
All those tests are for diagnosing problems with the car, its not a fun little thing to try... :thumbs:
Does the 318 have an OBC? It shows your gas milage, miles left in the
tank, average speed for last trip, etc?
If you do, there is all sorts of tricks you can do with that...
