So the radio would turn off if you stepped out to refuel? I sort of find that annoying if I had people in the car.

In my opinion, with one shortcoming, the BMW system is a good system. However, I would like to see a setup menu item that would allow me to choose if the radio remains on until the doors are locked with a remote (my preference) or if the radio just remains on for a fixed time period as is the case now.

I guess sometimes too much engineering is not a good thing.
