Now the weather is getting better, and the sun is shinning, we can get into the M3 and the air con will come on to cool down the car due to the solar gain from the windows and roof. However the outside temperature is only around 8 - 10 C.
As its not possible to turn of the vent I had to purchase 1m of the 16mm diameter; Expanded Neoprene Cord Rubber Sponge Seal 3mm 4mm 5mm 6mm 8mm 10mm 12mm 16mm | eBay at £4.55 to block up the vent.
So far, so good and it can easily be removed when the hot weather finally comes...

Well at less it doesn't look to out of place in the vent.

I've tried that (and other settings) but I get cold air on my legs!

My perfect set-up is AUTO at 20.0C and unfortunately its not agreeable to the wifey...

Now that's a thought...
Divorse is expensive.... And court will say she owns half the car.




However, in my case worth it....


Then again, if you choose servitude till death do you part then you can try to turn the temperature up on her side?

You need to go to HVAC settings (the fan icon) and tap on "sync" to turn it off, you should then have 2 temperature controlls.

If you switch the climate on 5 mins before you get into the car the initial cool-down will have completed by the time you get in and all will be well.
