Yes, plus you can kill the 37 degree temp warning, the seatbelt chime, and can get 1 touch close on all your windows, even if your car is a coupe. You just need to modify the switch a little. Enjoy.

And, if you hate being nannied to death by your car, you can disable this feature with programs like PA 1.4. Or you can pay a BMW specialist to code your car.

Did you get a pre-purchase inspection? No? well, take it to a qualified independent BMW mechanic to find out what you're in for. Stop guessing and asking for advice from strangers.
