Remote start?

Has anyone added a remote start to a new X5 or similar vehicle? Can the dealer do it? With all the advanced coding features of the BMW software it seems like it would be easy to do the following remotely:
Start engine
Turn on seat heater
Turn on steering wheel heater

Has anyone else figured out how to do this?

I remember reading about remote start threads in the past and I believe it is not really an option on the modern BMW's

I wish BMW will bring their My BMW Remote app officially to US soon and with all the features including climate control.
