Only works if you don't open the door. The moment you open a door, the car won't auto-lock. If you just unlock but not open a door, it will.

Depends on your level of OCD...

I had oyster in my 535i, and had to clean the seats every 2-3 weeks.

On the black seats in my 535d, I clean then every 1-2 months.
