Auto unlock on engine stop is certainly an option with CA. Mine does it.
Locks when I drive off, unlocks when I hit the start/stop button.

I don't have leds at all yet. I was hoping these v3s would be like the new f10 ones. If they were I would have bought some.

68k miles here
The 730d I had before was on 89k but it started to mess about with turbos, DPFs, EGRs etc so I got rid. First and last diesel I will ever own.

Transmission wierdness

My transmission is behaving in a strange way so I thought I'd post and just see if this is normal or not.

Not a chance.
The nav is even more integrated in to the car with the F01 than it is with the E65. Not to mention the screen being twice the resolution and considerably larger than the E65.
