Auto Hill Holder is afeature is on my 2011 1er - which is a MANUAL... not sure why it's needed on an automatic...

I just googled this and apparently Cadillac has an auto Hold feature as well.. seems like P for Park works perfectly for this scenario.
No. Auto H or Auto hold is a feature that holds the car when it comes to a complete stop and you can let off the brakes. Tap the throttle and it automatically releases.

Possible. That's still not a button though. (And way more work)... that would be shitty.

I'm fairly certain he's wrong about the button. The photos are crystal clear.
This?
I have it on mine M5 and I love it
That's the Auto Hold (for the brakes). Not a Sync button for HVAC.

EDIT::: just noticed you quoted 2 posts. My apologies.
No problem
HVAC is on I drive
Don't like it dough

Beautiful Lexus IS350, previous generation looks way better. No aggressiveness at all.

so in other words.. hill holder for automatics..

Hill holder is feature that holds the car when it comes to a complete stop and you can let off the brakes. It automatically releases after 3 seconds.

I understand the slight differences. but seriously, the Park button works for me.

Ahhh...of course we now have the requisite extra cupholder in the doors! What an improvement! Aside from this tease and the paint burn on the front bumper, I'm sure I'm not alone in saying the standard M sport looks better than the M340i version...opinion, of course.

With the roundel covered, you just have to squint to recognize it for the Lexus it is in the back...

No, no real interest in the M5 - and I acknowledge it could be better than the other ZF boxes I have driven, but none have approached either the PDK I had in my 981 or the DCT I have in the F80.

The shifts are just slower and less immediate, which removes the involvement and experience factor in my opinion - again, in my experience, which doesn't include the new M5.

No park button with the M-DCT.

I know any non-manual is dead upon arrival in your eyes, but the dual clutches are really good. And I don't mean from just a "it's faster" point of view. I've had way more manuals than not in my list of cars, but it's not practical for my day-to-day driving experience. I can appreciate what DCT/PDKs bring to the table in the alternative, which is easier to live with for a DD...now, maybe if I get that third garage bay someday.....

This is in an automatic. Not an M - DCT though right ?

Looks great. Not sure why people are complaining. BMW did a great job with this thing. Can't wait for the M3!!

BMW: hey Toyota/Lexus, how about I help you design and build the new Supra!

Toyota/Lexus: we accept but on one condition.

BMW: what is it?

Toyota/Lexus: you will put the IS rear end in all your new 3 series.

Interior looks great, exterior not so much. Looks like a Merc from the side, Lexus from the back and BMW from the front.

The ZF is so nice, it's as if the car has no gears at all! It's as if it's as lifeless as an electric vehicle..

That's why I like the front, as well as the improved interior, but the rear destroys my love a little bit. It could have been a really good looking car.
