Drive away locking, How?...

My dealer has told me this is an owner configurable feature, and
that it is turned on or off using the stalks.

I have had a software update today and would like to know how it is done. Can someone please tell me to do it.

Of interest is that they said I could have it for 180. I am suspecting that if I have had a full update I may have got it and they have not told me. I would like to check.

On another note... I have a pre september UK car and it does play MP3. It continues to do so after my update.

On your turn signal stalk there is a button, push it in and once an icon appears on your computer (between the gauges), you can scroll up down with the stalk, I think the logo is a key, hit the button again and one of the choices should be locking. This is from memory and applies to non-iDrive cars.

I thought it had to be programmed by the dealer for free?

Or not lol, I'm thinking E46.

Post-September production cars have this as one of the features you can enable yourself (it is available on mine).

Yep. If you request this feature, they will update the software on your pre-sept. car to accomodate drive away locking.

Either that, or the unsupported, inferior, incomplete, unfinished designed, half-assed pre-September E90s.

I'm sorry, did I go off on another rant? It's an involuntary reflex.

No problem, at least your e91 is fully-assed.

I think I did not get it.
The key referred to earlier in the display is to do with units of measurements.

It is a non idrive car. which I think most euro models certainly most in the UK are. Idrive here costs $4k+.

Nevermind.
