I feel that compared with other cars I have had, the automatic climate control in the M3 is pretty bad. In other cars, I’m used to setting the temperature, and then the car keeps the interior climate fairly comfortable no matter the environment — some cars better than others. But in the M3, even if I set the temperature very low, I can sit in the sun and sweat, while the M3 keeps the fans running a very low speed. In other cars, when it’s sunny the car runs the fans on high to compensate. On the other hand, when the M3 is in shade it can get extremely cold. To me it seems the reason might be that the M3 does not have a sunsensor?
One could hope that the M3 could use the many cameras as a sunsensor, and that a software update could improve the automation.
