For those of you who have not driven a recent BMW, the reason drivers hardly ever indicate is because it is almost impossible to turn the bl**dy things off once they have started. I drove a 3.0D M5 Sport from here in SW France to Reading (a visiting friend had to fly back to the UK urgently, I drove it home for him) - and spent most of the trip trying to turn the indicators off, they don't work in a sensible way like they do in most cars. You have to turn them 'on' again to cancel them, but most of the time they just stay on. So you flick the stalk to the opposite side and then that one starts and won't stop. Much easier to just not bother. The cruise control was just as weird. And as for the entertainment system, I just gave up. Did nothing for me to be honest. The Beemer was obviously faster than my humble Mondeo (but nowhere near my Predator tuned 'vette, obv) but rolled a lot more in the corners (probably because my friend is an animal behind the wheel and it was completely worn out). The biggest shock of the journey was the price of a last minute one way ticket through the Chunnel. I told the guy I only wanted to go through it once, not buy it . .
