Not sure why the cig lighter remaining "hot" is an issue...but if it's because you're using it to run electronic peripheral devices...BMW has an adapter that can be purchased for usually less than $20 that allows you to adapt the glovebox's flashlight receptacle. That receptacle is switched (no power when ignition is off). And the adapter can remain plugged in when the glovebox is closed: has it on sale for $7.99: (I'm not affiliated with or am I endorsing the seller of this item...the link was picked at random)
