    My XI-backed Joyride Yesterday NYC got hit with an enormous snow storm, and our “beloved” mayor decided to abandon any snow removing efforts until the storm is over the following day. Let's just say that while other sedans were either hopelessly stuck or moving along at a snail's pace, I was...

    Just bought a 2003 330CiC with all the toys, and the navigation is a little strangely behaved. It can take between 15 and about 40 minutes to start up when the weather is below 50 degrees (f). The blank screen flickers a bit, but displays nothing. Radio works fine and unit is responsive to...
