well mine is fine, the only electrical problem ive had is that the passenger window rolls down a little bit sometimes when i try to roll it up and takes a couple tries to get it to stay closed. otherwise it has been "perfect"

If you really really want to switch back you can... I dont know why you would want to... I've seen a write up on how to upgrade from the 8 button to the one with many buttons and it is more trouble than it's worth. But I suppose you could figure out the wiring diagrams, as I recall some of the connections overlap. But I woudn't go through the trouble of changing especailly to one with less functions.

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
If the temp is stuck on -37, the temp sensor in the driver's side brake duct is bad, broken, or missing. There is a DIY on fixing the buttons. Either on this forum or www.bimmerforums.com. No car is perfect. Especially one that is 12 years old. BMW's take more maintainance than some, and not everyone maintains them properly. That is why you should inspect and check any used car thoroughly before you buy.

About the temp sensor

Isnt that on the passenger side brake duct, its like a round thing which is made of metal. i dont know maybe i gotta check the drivers side now, its like a antenna or a thing that looks like a watch battery.

Hey

One more thing I just checked and the wires are broken and there is no plug to plug the sensor i ordered is there any way i can wire it myself directly to the sensor like splice the wires in to the sensor harness.
