E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
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.

Fasten Seatbelt chime

When I place groceries in the front seat of my '04 vert, the seatbelt warning continues to chime. Easy solution is to move bags to floor. However my dog travels with me and he weighs close to 60 lbs, so is there a way to disable the chime? I don't really care about the warning message, but the incessant chime is very annoying.

may be able to get it coded out, or somehow hack and bypass the sensor. It's a minor annoyance, i gave to put my briefcase down in the floor every morning or the chime will drive me nuts.

The quickest easiest solution would be to throw one of these in there.... now that i mention it, i'm going to go ahead and buy one

Thanks

At that price I just ordered one. The first few times he was alone in my 540i, the alarm kept sounding. I figured out how to disengage the motion sensor and all was ell after that!

You can also use NCS Expert software to program out the chime (and/or the warning message).

Cool Dummy Buckle is great!

I keep a set of the dummy buckles in my car all the time. No issues using them in my '05 Convertible!

I coded out the chime, but left the warning light on. I do not want to take a chance that the system would fail, if the airbag needed to blow.
