new to the form, and to bmw's

So I just got myself a 2015 X4 30d, and am really enjoying it. previous car history is Impreza STi's and Audi's, lastly a 3.0 Q5 s-line.

just trying to get familiar with all the toys in the x4. favourite thing just now is the heads up display

Welcome, dont have heads up on my 64 plate 20D M Sport but do have a lot of the other toys (Reversing camera, folding mirrors, media pack, harman kardon sound system, high beam assist, adaptive headlights, elect seats, climate comfort windscreen) as well as all the standard features.. Havnt played with half of them im sure but..

The 4 extras im missing that I really wanted were surround view, speed limit display, variable damper control and lumbar support

Heads Up Display is my favourite too closely followed by Comfort Access!

agreed - comfort access is great, and it's something you just use without thinking about it.
I'm finding the BMW has more "standard" options whereas they were all optional extras in the audi. like the heated seats and push button start.

i do miss my pan-roof a little though..

Just looked through the UK brochures.. comfort access with smart opener (Option code 322) is this what you guys are referring to?

Cant see whats included at the moment but im not sure ive seen many uk cars with this option spec'd..

According to the BMW site its just the ability to open the doors without having to unlock/lock the car?

Yep you leave your keys in your pocket/bag and walk up to the car and grab the door and it unlocks, same to exit. You won’t believe how dependant you get on it. My other BM doesn’t have it and I regret it...

I think the option is also called keyless entry and keyless start. I had it on the audi until it stopped working, and I missed it. Glad I have it back on the X4

Although.. I have been stopping the car, pressing the engine-stop button once to turn off the engine. radio stays on. getting out the car and pressing the handle to lock.
According to the handbook I shouldn't do this as it puts too much strain on the battery!? supposed to press the stop button twice to turn everything off before getting out, apparently.

It also opens the boot (trunk) by waving your foot under the rear bumper - so real handy when your hands a full
