I just got a new 325i and am in need of advice.
My question this time (and I think there may be many to come) is the functions on the key. I did go to the dealer and got them to install the factory alarm system. He explained some stuff but after I got home I re-read the manual again and I find that the key is this mysterious piece of BMW technology that seems to require a visit to the dealer each and every time one wishes to "program",call up or, change a function.
As this key programming is for seat and mirror postition , head lights (on, off, sensitivity), air conditioning pre sets, etc, etc, is there a way for me to do this myself or do I really need to go to the dealer when (or every time) I gain weight and need to move the seat position (LOL). The key seems to be a very important piece of equipment but I find that being tied to the dealer is a bit strange.
I am also a bit confused as to what the "follow me home" function is. I can have this deactivated by my dealer (woo hoo) but as of now I do not know what it is doing. Maybe I have to get the dealer to "activate" it first?
Please help a new guy.

Thanks folks. I did read thge owners manual and there are many places that invite you to the dealers to program the key. That is what propmted the questions.
jeremer, I do not understand about setting the "vehicle" memeory. Is there a way for me to do that?
As far as getting larger...well...um...it was purely a hypothetical situation you see and..um ...well, forget I asked (LOL).
