Most vehicles have what they call a "black box." It would not be user accessible or changeable as they use this information in the state of a crash to determine reasons as to WHY the crash may of happened. I am not sure on what BMW uses.

But I believe these black boxes only store a few seconds of information. They are interested in only the conditions immediately preceeding a crash. So history further back than a few seconds isn't kept.

I'm pretty sure the key holds the top speed reached in the car, but that's about it other than the black box

Top speed doesn't matter. Just say you had it on a racetrack once...

No our cars don't have a black box.
