I would like one too, but I do not know if it is worth it. If you could program it so it can turn the heat up and the heated seats on it may be worth it.

The flashlogic supposedly works well but at 7 benjamins it's an expensive upgrade.

The heated seats can be coded to start in the position last left in when the car was shut off.
The cabin heat already does that.

The Bavauto remote start is about 700.00 as well.
Coding the seats doesn't do any good if the car isn't started.
What does the cabin heat already do?

Does this only work on models with the push button start? Mine is a 2004 and still has a key

Same question, would this one work on an earlier E60 with a key and not a push button starter?

Cabin heat already goes back to wherever you left it last..

But cabin heat and heated seats will not turn on unless the car is started, so without a car starter, even if coded, will not come on. That is what I was trying to say.

The link above gets you to the manufacturers web site. The system is comprised of a module or modules depending on your requirements and several wiring harnesses that need to be installed. Moderate level of difficulty to install. It is not a software based setup.
