Mein Auto: '06 530i
Hmm, the radio and stuff in my '06 530i all take a second or 2 to turn off after the key shuts down the engine. I think that in this car there is really no master relay that shuts the battery power off from the electronics - it is all taken care of by the various computers, and the key just tells the computers to start the various shutdown activities. I suspect it is similar to "shutting down" a Windows PC, as opposed to just pulling the plug.

Jon.
