Newly discovered feature 2011 335

If you hold down the unlock button on the key whilst the car is parked it will roll down all 4 windows, and then after that the sunroof. Pretty cool feature and surprised I never found this out after 6 months of driving this car.

And if you don't live in the US, the reverse also works. That is, holding the lock button closes the car back up.

Both this forum and e90post have "things you didn't know about your car" threads. Check them out, there may be other things you don't know!

It's one of the secrets we don't like to share with noobs. A long time ago there was a thread called "Things I Didn't Know About My E9X" or similar. Dig it up and read it. It's full of surprises.

Yes, surprising it is ..... like if your office is in range of your car and you inadvertently lay something on the key fob .......coming out later to an open car ...... hopefully not raining ....... and with all your stuff untouched inside

Didn't Bangle say in the DVDs that came with the car as a welcome gift that he wanted the lines to evoke emotion and excitement even when the car is standing still? Perhaps this is what he meant. Nothing gets your blood racing like walking up to your car and realizing all the windows are down...

That's because I don't apply reason, judgement or critical thought to anything I do. You got a lot to learn about posting "the Internet way," DSX.
