Sounds like a sledgehammer moment is in the works.

2. All of the park distance control lights lit up at once (include the front - which I don't have installed !)
The service advisor didn't elaborate too much this evening but said it needs a new part and recoding. At the moment the whole iDrive is kaput, no display, no sound, and I can't eject either the CD or the DVD. I asked if it would be possible to get the software to allow me to roll my windows up, close the sunroof, and fold the mirrors via the remote ala European style. He said he would look into it for me.

I really would be a fool to pass this offer up. If you'd ever taken notice of my signature it had them down as a Future Mod but that's getting moved next Wednesday. I need to take a picture of the car this weekend for the proverbial before-and-after shot. Of course, that means I have to wash the cold and wind.
