    Indicator switch feedback

    hi all.

    Tried searching the forums but can't find anything.

    This is my first bmw (came from Honda). Does anyone not feel the clicky feedback when turning the indicators on to left/right? The cancel is nice and clicky but that's it.

    I have to look at the dash to see if I turned it on or not as I can't tell just my feel.
    Hondas have a nice strong feedback on left/right and cancel.

    Indicator switch on this and all BMWs using this switchgear suck. Too little movement, not enough feedback, I agree, it's just what it is, thicker gloves don't help either.

    I think you just get used to it as I no longer need to check the dash.

    I think "what we get used to" is the key here.  When I first read this post, I thought, I have nothing to add, what the OP says is not an issue for me.  Then I remember one thing:  I have gotten used to the self cancelling feature of the BMW's, I bought a Kawasaki 3 months ago and I always forget to cancel the turn signal on it.
