Yeah, it’s not that complicated lol.
It's not that it's hard, it's that it's unnecessary overengineered. Not to mention, it's clunky for those unfamiliar with BMW's. I absolutely hated it in my E92 (my first bmw)
It's german, everything is over-engineered, just like the E92 seat belt extenders (you know what I'm talking about lol). But like I said I quite like it, I can barely hit it for it to do a quick 3 blink sequence and I can switch lanes and not worry about having to manually click it back off.
I don't know Japan sadly but near country of Korea "yes"
Flashing 3 times is a safety issue, because a short flashing can be overlooked by other driver. In Germany (and other European countries) it is even mandatory to flash at least 3 times. I learned to love the automated flashing from many other vehicles.
I think Mercs are the same regarding the 3 blinks with the light tap not just BMW.
That’s right. I actually don’t now any German car that doesn’t.
Lots of cars have the light tap for 3 blinks. My f150 has it
The new 2018 Camry has it as well
Normal segway back to Nurburgring lap times here; was anyone able to locate the lap time that this Supra pulled? I'd like to compare it to the list of production car lap records:
In regards to the turn signals; the "tap for 3" and full pull of the lever for sustained signalling is fairly standard in new cars. The only newer car I've driven without that feature is a Camaro. Its actually quite intuitive, I'm not upset about this being on the Supra at all.
the joke about bmw owners not using blinkers (common truth) is directly related to their non standard process... it's worse for those that have not or do not own BMW vehicles.
non-standard, unintuitive controls aren't a great idea IMO. that said, if you like them then more power to you
The number of flashes or the tap to flash is actually irrelevant to this feature.
It is that the BMW stalk is always in the neutral position. In a normal car, the stalk is moved up to turn right and stays there until you have completed your turn or push it down manually. The BMW has a short press and long press, that never actually locks in place, which is beyond annoying when you want to turn it off since it triggers the turn signal in the opposite direction
Edit: The G30 got rid of this nonsense so we may in luck
Ahhhh, now I understand. Thank you for the clear description. I thought people were being thrown off by the "tap for 3 blinks" feature. I'll pray for the standard tech lol.
