Are you kidding?

In my new-to-me '08 135i, do I REALLY need to adjust the driver's side and passsenger side temperature settings separately?? Does BMW assume there are always two people on board who cannot agree to a common temp setting?

Press the middle button on the driver's temp control and it makes both sides = the driver's side setting.

On 08's and 09's, the REST function occupies what is now the button for the ALL function for 2010's and on. So yes OP, you have to adjust both.

Also, it would be the passenger side in the US of A.

Thanks for confirming. Just seems an odd oversight. On most cars, a common setting is the default. Oh well, if this is the worst gripe about the car, I'll be quite happy...

Its an innocent question..

but wait till he finds out about the:

Double pull door handles,
the hood that gets sprayed from the headlamp washers when only really wanting to wash windshield
the poor key-fob reception
the radio display that he cant see with his polorized sunglasses
the oddities about the usb/ aux/ iphone connections
the warping in of the "HD" radio signal...

enjoy your new car !!!! ( honestly, they are little things and you get used to them)

Double pull handles are a setting that can be changed yourself with iDrive, or at dealer

See the post above this one to find out about counterintuitive. This one will be the least of your questions.

That being said, it's all just little quirks in the relationships with our 1's.

Do 2010+ models not have any REST function at all? I would gladly take REST over ALL and just put up with fiddling with the knobs on both sides.

Think I remember reading that they did away with REST in 2010.

Yea, but the function can be changed through coding. I don't know if the reverse is true and you can have the REST changed to ALL, but I would assume its possible.

If you do simultaneously do WOT for 30 secs while using the windows washers, press the odometer reset, lower passenger window, the temps will equal drivers temp
