i dont know about the windows rolling up, but there definately is not a radar detector in there...
my dad has a 93' 525 and it beeps when you get to a certain speed (whatever speed you choose i believe)
the reason for this is so you dont find yourself going to fast and get a ticket. its pretty much a speed reminder. thats what the random beeps probably are...

What exactly does this have to do with General E46 discussion? I'm a little drunk, but I don't really see the connection.

No connection, wrong forum.

No built in radar detector, would be surprised if the windows went up automatically at that speed and not lower.

Uh yes, but E46's have this feature as well.

I remember it fondly because just after I bought the car I accidentally set it to 6kph. Damn thing beeped every time I pulled up from a traffic light.

On my '97 840Ci Sport they would go up automatically at 100MPH...

Funny thing though... if you had the rear quarter panel windows down, they would NOT go up.
