I saw the Park-car Ventilation feature in the owners manual, but I couldn't recall the correct menu to set it on the Radio...

Has anyone else tried or been able to get it to work?

I wonder if this is only for I-Drive models?

Looks like it may just be with the iDrive, If available, from your Settings menu, Climate, then choose Activate Parked Car Vent. You can set a timer on how long you want it to stay on through that menu also. See below:

Parked-car ventilation
The concept
The parked-car ventilation blows air into the
passenger compartment to lower interior temperatures.
The system can be switched on and off at any
external temperature, either directly or by using
a preset switch-on time. It remains switched on
for 30 minutes.
Since the system uses a substantial amount of
electrical current, refrain from activating it twice
in succession without allowing the battery to be
recharged in normal operation between use.
Open the vents to allow air to flow out.
They can be operated via iDrive.
Switching on/off directly
1. "Settings"
2. "Climate"
3. "Activate parked-car vent."
The symbol on the automatic climate control
flashes if the system is switched on.
Controls Climate

I guess this function may only be available w/ iDrive despite what my manual says on P.95, "they can be operated via the radio". I wonder why your manual says that it can be operated via the iDrive. Don't we have generic X1 manuals for all US models? What's the p/n for your manual (on rear)? Mine is 01 40 2 914 573 ue.
