The 323i is going in for work tomorrow, and I'm curious, are there any options I should have the dealer activate while I'm there? Would they even be willing to do it? Will it be expensive?

Yeah, have them activate STEALTH, and JUMP modes on your car.
See if they can DE-activate that pesky speed limiter while they are in there.

About the only thing they can activate or reset is your Service Indicator Lights.
(I would just make my own tool to do that, though, costs about $5 as opposed to $40 or whatever they charge for an oil change nowadays.)

Oh. I had just heard scuttlebut that there were perhaps some Euro options or something that could be activated by a dealer.

I don't think your scuttlebutt is very reliable.

Rumors rarely are, right? :P
