Hello -

Has anyone tried to move their GT with the driver side door open? Does it automatically put you back in park and throw a warning on the screen? I've had to pull the car close to some spots in my garage and cannot with the door open/cracked to peak at the side. Is there a way to override this that I'm missing?

Thx!

You can't drive w/the door open. Safety feature.
Camera Package (Top Down Camera) would alleviate your need to open the door since it gives you full view around the entire car.

put the seatbelt on, it will let you do it. it is part of the litigation proof system, I mean safety system in modern Bimmers, my X5 does the same thing...

Ah-ha!

I got it to work today and was wondering what I had done differently, that must have been it.

Thx!

Well, the first time it would let you move a few feet (really really slow), but you would get a warning. From that point on, the car would stop you.
