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.

Memory Settings Question

I apologize up front if this is rookie stuff or if it has been covered extensively elsewhere on the forum and my search was not exhaustive enough. My question has to do with the memory settings on the '08 650 vert I drive vs. the '08 335xi my wife drives. When I get into her car to drive, the seats and etc. automatically go to my preferred settings. However, when I get into the 650 if I was not the last driver, in order for me to return everything to my preferrred settings I have to press and hold the memory button. Is it user error or just a different set-up between the cars?

If you press the memory button after opening the door, it will go to the preset setting without holding the button. There are some setting in the IDrive that can be set, & a different key can cause preset settings when unlocking the door. Some coding can be done to change some of the options, but all models don't work the same.
