E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

A lot of the FOB functions can be turned on through FSC enabling codes. Either a dealer or anyone with proper tools to access the car's computer can program things like FOB enabled auto-folding/un-folding side mirrors and auto-closing windows and sunroof which are not available in US 6ers (you have to physically rest your finger/hand on the door handles for CA cars) but are in other countries (litigation prevention, I believe). For example, Patryk from Poland (google him) can remotely code your car to do a number of things that your dealer might not do, like the afore-mentioned FOB features, or having a digital display of your speed in your gauge cluster, or removing error codes etc. I don't know if there is a coding equivalent of the SmartTop but might be worth research.

Discovered something interested today.
When the car is locked:
-press unlock once,
-and then press it again once.
-then open the door
-> the driver's window will go down quickly to 1/5.
This is almost what I expected by keep pressing on unlock to push down the window. Helping me get in the car in tight situations.

When the car is unlocked:
-get out of the car with the window down
-press unlock once
-press lock once
-close the door
-> the window goes up.
In this situation its to get out of the car from tight spaces between another car ... In Europe people are from each other incredible close ... the don't all own BMWs ;-)
