    Default Turning on features

    I just bought a 2002 325i. When I remotely lock or unlock the car it
    doesn't have a visual or audible signal to tell me it did something. I
    mean no light flashing or beep or anything. Is there a way to turn
    this on? My owners manual says I can but it doesn't tell me how



    Any ideas?



    Thanks - jon

    We just purchased a 2003 325XI and we are having the same problem.
    Hope someone can answer this.

    Sadly I just got an e-mail back from a BMW dealership saying that it
    can be done but they have to do it. They said it takes about a half an
    hour and they charge 100 bucks per hour. Any other ideas?

    Thanks - jon

    Well, the dealership is full of crap. Programming such functions
    takes about 15 minutes tops, and most dealers will do it free once a
    year, at least here in Chicago. Even the ones that won't will do it
    when you take your car in for some other service, as a courtesy. You
    might try another dealership if possible.

    Yeah I thought that was kind of crappy. Anyway you know of to do this
    yourself? Can you hook these cars upto your computer somehow and do it
    yourself. Sorry if thats a stupid question

    Thanks - jon

    This is a dealer's [politish] way of telling you that they have plenty of
    business and don't want yours - go somewhere else and tell 11 other
    people...
