Is there a way to either disable or change the sensitivity of the passenger's seat? I will have a gallon of milk [or two bottles of wine] in the passenger's seat and the car will continue to bark at me to buckle the milk up.

Amended. You'll thank me the first time you panic-brake and do not have to clean a gallon of rotting milk out of your carpet.

The seatbelt-warning chime can be disabled via coding (software reconfiguration). I believe it is all or nothing, however--you cannot adjust or disable the passenger side alone.

A better place to transport milk, wine and similar-sized containers of liquid is on the floor behind either front seat. Really, anything that might become a projectile in a sudden stop should be behind you and in some way, hindered from flying between the front seats (ideally, in the trunk, but that's a bad place for unsecured liquids, I can tell you...). There is then far less chance it will end up under the pedals, distract you as it bounces around or tempt you to make a reflexive grab to save the item or the cabin from damage. Any of those events can lead to catastrophe.

Take heed of jonnybarbs' misfortune:

Spilled gallon of milk in the trunk
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...03#post7864903

Put the thing in a bag or if you have rubber floor mats (to contain a spill), on the passenger side floor.

Thanks for the feedback. I am a creature of habit and toss the groceries, latpop etc... Into the passenger seat. Frankly too lazy to lean over and put on the floor. Time to change my habits.

I buckle up all kinds of things, including propane tanks (that are sitting on cardboard and covered in an old towel to keep everything clean).

You can have the car "coded" so as to not beep when the seatbelt isn't fastened.

If you don't have a valet to make the "milk run" to the grocery store (or a beater car) you really can't afford a BMW.

BMW's should never be seen, much less parked in the demolition zone of a grocery store parking lot

Agreed. Buckle up the milk container, or bag of whatever. All you need is a hard break to send the thing flying forward and splashing over your entire car. Which may get worse if you try and save it and get into a real accident.

That, or stick that stuff on the floor. At least there it won't be as likely to fly.

Old towel and cardboard boxes? You have no respect for your car. Easily a silk padded cloth (Satin is also permissible), a temperpedic foam mattress and a five points harness.
