On mine, A/C and radio, resume as it was when the car was turned off. i.e. if the A/C was off when I turned the car off, then when I turn the car on the A/C stays off. I sure don't know how to change this though. Same for the radio and navigation screen, they resume where last were.

For the passenger mirror to tilt down to look at the curb (to help you not curbcheck while reversing), you have to have the mirror switch selecting the drivers mirror. Your car MUST also be equipped with memory seats for this function to work.

This works for my car though. So it just might depend on the year of package.

The car simply has to have power seats. At some point, all 330s got power seats standard, so they all have that feature.

For the hidden "2" on the obc, is there any way to save it so everytime you turn your key it does the console test/ needle sweep?

There's a tool kit in the trunk. There is also a 'secret' compartment.
