Only way to make the rear camera mirror work is to fully commit to using it 100%, else you'll never adjust to the depth of field delta between it and a traditional rear view mirror. I used it for over 60k miles in my V3 and absolutely love it. Feels like a safety detriment when I hop in a Hertz without it!Didn’t know bmws did that.. would be pretty cool. Trying to get used to the rear view camera/mirror
that's amazing! If a cop pulled me over to check out my car I wouldn't be mad hahaI had a close call with CHP this morning. I got on highway 101 doing 85 and I saw this Camaro flying up to me so I thought he wanted to race so I gunned it and left him. Well, it turned out to be CHP with flat lights on top and of course pulled me over, I was lucky he just wanted to checkout the Blackwing so we both laughed. He said it was the 1st Blackwing he saw so far but warned me CHP is keeping an eye out for these cars. After talking to him for a while and checking out everything on the car, he told me to slow down and be careful.
I thought for sure I would be the 1st to get a speeding ticket out of everyone here but he turned out to be a nice guy and into cars so I lucked out.
I really wish I could get rev-match and v-mode set as my default start up.My biggest gripe so far is there is no way to turn rev match on by default. Flipping the paddle on the C7 was way easier than finding the little button by the shifter each time you start the car. I even tried setting up those user profiles hoping it was an option but nothing.
I also saw there were some fairly obvious paint runs on the inside of the door.
I still absolutely love this car and think I'm going to just sell the C8 since it never gets driven.
+1 on the "Rev match enabled at startup"I really wish I could get rev-match and v-mode set as my default start up.
Honestly, my only gripe with the car is the location of the parking brake button. I wish it were near the shifter instead of on the left side of the steering wheel. For that matter, I wish it were a traditional e-brake.
I find this really confusing. If i hit the v button twice it goes v then touring. But was in "my" mode first? and if so, how do i get back to "my" mode?Does it default to my mode? Seems that mine defaults to touring.
I'll definitely try the medium steering, I do find the highest setting to be a bit stiff.I find this really confusing. If i hit the v button twice it goes v then touring. But was in "my" mode first? and if so, how do i get back to "my" mode?
BTW, steering on tour or medium is ok. It's godawful in the most sporty setting. It's like they tuned the steering to actively fight you - with a slight delay - just to feel sportier.
