3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
I don't believe this is something you can do yourself - I've heard the dealer uses a specific computer with specific software to re-program your settings.
When I bought my '01 325i in 6/03, the daytime running lights were programmed on. The 2 closest dealers to me charged $47.50 & $48.00, respectively, to turn off the daytime running lights. When/if you take it in, they should ask you about a # of different settings (seat functions, power doorlocks unlocking all doors or just the drivers door, etc.) that you can have changed all at the same time/price.
Sheesh, I'm working for the wrong dealer. We do that for free. I hate doing crap for free, time is money. We usually let our hourly twits do that stuff......hehehehe. :P
The dealer needs to do it. They have a sheet with all the options. Check off what you want activated or deactivated. You can customize the setting for each key if you wish.
It only takes a few minutes.
You got a new car so the dealer shouldn't charge anything for the initial settings.
You need them to do it. I use the drl's for safety, and the auto door locks, because I like the reaction I get from passengers when they hear the doors "click"
at about 5mph. The side view mirror drop down in reverse can also be custom set, but mine has a short in it so dealer has new one on order.
