This all look very familiar to what my Z4 does. Except that I haven't figured out how to see the readings like the coolant temp, etc. Did you have to activate something or is it a standard ability to view these? I can only see few items like outside temp, average MPG, average speed and such by pressing the button on the turn signal stalk.

You can look up the actual coolant temp, engine rpm, amount of fuel in both tanks, real time fuel consumption (in liters/100km and liters/hour), battery voltage, etc. The one thing that's not there that I wish was there is the ability to read oil temp. I also like how easy it is to replace the oil filter from the top without making a mess. I only found that out when I did the first oil change. Finally, I really like the idea of having the battery in the trunk - it stays clean and is easy to access. It also helps with F/R weight distribution. :)
