What is this beeping sound that I always keeping hearing (inside the cabin) within 15 minutes of starting the engine. I hear four beeps and they come up every time I start the engine. Its not the outside temperature alarm (cold temp). This started about 3 weeks back as a result of changing some settings in the iDrive.

Hourly chime...
:thumbup: Setting is in the main menue of the iDrive, same place you set the clock.

I set mine one day and then drove around for a few day :drive: but I guess not on the hour then after I had forgotten about it... beep beep beep beep... WTF... took me a bit to remember what I had done.

Purpose ? Maybe, its the German thing.
News on the radio occurs at the top of the hour. I suspect it is designed to remind you if you want to catch up on the news. That is what I use it for..
