Key programming

My dealer is sending a guy out to my place tomorrow to turn off the auto lock feature, is there anything else I can have them program that I don't know about?

You should have received a form even prior or at delivery which has preference options that the dealers can enable/disable. I Googled it to find the blank form as I never got one. You can then have tehm set your fob options.

Cheers

There is actually a much larger list than what is on the dealer form.

Most of it is in the owners manual.

This might help. I got it from X3World a while back. It's the best one I've seen.

Thanks HT, that's what I was looking for. By the way, they can't do this at your/my place, it has to be hooked up to the computer at the BMW dealer.

That's what I was thinking - unless they have a notebook that is capable of programming the options.

That's what I was thinking, too. Takes about 20 minutes I believe.
