Single-most impressive feature in your F10?

So, I drove to a suburb from downtown Chicago last night, using the GPS - I got to say the HUD display of the directions at night was amazing. I'm obviously impressed with the power-train etc., but I got to say this display was the coolest feature - funny thing I used it numerous times during the day, but it didn't seem as impressive as night.
What's yours?

I have a 997 Turbo at my other home - that pretty much puts a damper on anything else I drive, so I have to search for 'impressive' things on other cars...

Very impressed with the side & top view cameras in conjunction with the parking sensors. At first the side cameras seemed useless...but with the top view mode it's genius...very cool, and very functional.

Even though I don't use them much, I like the paddle shifters. I think the response is reliable and they are fun to use.

Aside from the top view camera mode:
The braking feature of the standard cruise control! Absolutely brillant on speed restricted downhill streets with speed cameras. Set & forget, and stop worrying about tickets.

It ain't genius since the side view cameras have nothing to do with top view.

For that, you have to look under your side mirrors. You will see the lens used by top view.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go is fantastic.

Honestly, when it told me not to turn the card off restart not possible. How cool is that? Nobody wants to be stuck in a dead car.

Not an option, it's even standard (at least over here)! Apparently it was also already implemented in the E60 and E63 since the MY 2008 facelift.
