I think you have hit it, with the most likely cause being my wife's key settings causing the problem. The thing I don't understand is why that happened? She never unlocks the car from the driver's...

No offense taken. And I appreciate your input. The question for me is why the car would recognize my wife's key on startup rather than mine, if that's the cause, after hundreds of times starting up...

Good point, and I thought of that. Actually the car was driven much more than usual, as I was driving guests around our area each day, with few stops. I don't think low battery is a problem at this...

No, I didn't use my second key that day, but my wife was in the car with the second key, which is her key. She didn't do anything to operate the car. That is usually the way it is for us, and this...

Sorry, they did the transfer when I left them alone for a while so I didn't see it. It looks so good, perhaps it's just that Virginia's sticker is easier to do.

I love the current 6 series, and think it is as much of a standout now as my old 635CSi was in 1989.

However, the rear seat arm rest in a 635CSi had a compartment which was cooled by the A/C so...

+1

It is for me. After a 6 and four 5-series, I like my 328i Sports Wagon as much as any of them.
