My wife and I found our BMW 325ci with all the windows open this morning... including the rear windows and the sunroof (completely open). I know my wife has never completely opened the sunroof... don't think she even tilts it up. Guess what I'm wondering is how in the world is this possible? If someone broke in... what would they need to be able to do to accomplish this? I thought BMWs could not be started without the key that comes with the car. I know we did not leave the valet keys in the glove box... so what could it be?

Of course it was raining this morning...

Maybe she left the keys in her pocket and when she was inside she held the unlock feature. Although you have to click it once to get the doors to unlock, click it again to get the rest to unlock and THEN hold the button to have all the windows and sunroof open. Maybe she needs to watch where she puts her keys

I didn't even know the remote did that? You can open all the windows by holding the unlock button?!?

OK this just took a turn for the worse. It turns out the key cylinder was busted out on the passenger side and the owners manual (which had my registration and old insurance cards in it) was stolen as well. In order for them to have gotten all the windows open, they would have had to attempt to start the car. I know the remote key needs to be used to start it (which would explain why I still have a car), but how did they get the power on?

Now I'm screwed - do I get new locks all around? Just replace the one that was ripped out? Now some jackass low life is running around with my owners manual and my address.

the windows and sunroof can be opened and closed completely with the key in the door. Therefore if these sh*t heads busted the cylinder just right they were able to open everything. These guys were obviously pros.
