Computer (I-Drive) codes

Or you can set it to remember the last mode it was in, either off or on, from the last time you drove. I haven't done this yet but I am ready to do it when my new X3 arrives.
Marathon Man - I too would like to reset some of the computer coding - to include the ability to set the auto stop feature to remember the last setting. Do you have any info on HOW the codes can be reset. One thing I would LOVE to set is the ability to have ALL the doors unlock automatically when the engine is turned off! My old Passat did that and I loved it!
