Actually a lot of features are from way back models. BMW never advertised them.
I use to have 2 program schedules for parked ventilation on my E34 1994 530i. And not only that.
On the E34 the boot will pop at the press of the button, the one near the engine hood opener (yes they are in the same place since a long time).
Had to enter a 4 digit code so you can start the engine, as seen in "Transporter 2", a 2005 movie. Only it was an Audi... you know... the "never follow" company at that time
Even more... some of the electronics were first to start in E31 8 series cars. Those models were IMO the "in car electronics" trend starters. In E31 there was an option so the car will close the sunroof and windows when driving past the 160km mark, so it will save gas.
I don't have photos of any earlier BMW but from the 94 530. Isn't it nice to see all controls and overall look is still the same ?!!! The orange color I remember, it was in the E28 also.
