Turn Signal:Same Car different flash pattern in Europe than the US

Anyone thats done European Delivery experience this?? One light press(not fully compressed in locked position) in Europe and the turn signal went on for about 3 secs before automatically turning off on its own. Here in the US, the same turn signal is pressed lightly and it only gives me one quick blink...what gives?? Was something changed upon US delivery? Is this a coding issue??

Sorry to do this to you, but also this is the first time I have ever used this icon:



Lol! Ok, anyways, just go to settings and find Triple Turn Signal Activation. You can turn it on and off. Depress the stock half way and you will get 3 blinks and 3 blinks only. :P

Just reading the title I was expecting you to post saying you saw an M5 in the Bay Area with amber blinkers on the rear. Guess not.

The M5 has two user configurable M mode buttons. Basically they can call up driving presets for engine, suspension, steering, and DriveLogic at the touch of a button so you don't have to fiddle.
