BMW Door Ajar chime/sound...

Silly question. I was in my buddy's 545I and the chime that sounds when his door is not shut and you have your key in the ignition sounds like some kind of a microsoft app sound was cool. I dont hear that in the 335I other than the boring Beep Beep. Is this a setting you can change in the 335I?

Hum, my 2009 3er doesn't beep for warnings, it has some sort of a gong sound. I am sure it is not a setting you can change, but perhaps with iDrive you can.

For 2006-2007, the warning chime was an irritating off-key Ding! for non-iDrive equipped cars. In 2008, the warning "chord" become the same across the line for iDrive and non-iDrive vehicles.

No, the chime cannot be changed.

Correct... iDrive used to have unique chimes that are now used across the line.

I think you can adjust the volume on it though, using the iDrive. There's a gong setting.

Your opinion. I much prefer my off-key Ding! to that Gong! on the E90's that I've gotten as loaners.

Not in the old days - that's a feature with the new iDrive for '09.
