NWS Programming issues

So I've been a member just over a month now and I'm rather disappointed in the service I've received from a BMW dealership in MD. One major issue i have is that all my doors unlock when i press the unlock button. I've been told that this is a comfort feature. Does anyone know how to program a 2004 325Xi so that ONLY the driver door unlocks when the unlock button is pressed and then all 4 doors are unlock when the unlock button is pressed a second time? I refus to pay BMW to do this.
Also i did something REAL stupid. Bird shit got hard on my car and I wipped it off with a wet paper towel; however, the crap was hard so it scratched my finish and removed some coating (the car is Orient Blue Metallic) what can i use to get rid of the scratches?

I have no idea how....but can I ask why you want it to only unlock the drivers door?

When I installed the keyless system on my e30 I made sure that it unlocked everything at the same time...

I generally don't like all my doors being unlocked. I prefer to have the driver door unlocked with 1 press, and all doors unlocked with the second press. Just a personal preference but again I REFUSE to pay that dealership any money to do this. Call me cheap but $60 for a 30 second programming issue...doesn't add up. I'd appreciate your assistance though.

The comfort control is proprietary. If what you want is in fact achievable, you will have to pay somebody to do it. It will either be a dealership, or a very well-equipped independent shop. Finding an independent shop that has the proper tools to program that kind of stuff is very unlikely, since I can only see negligible payback potential for such an investment. I am sorry I cannot give you better news.

For the paint scratches... well, you can take it to a pro. They can make it look really good, I bet. Where on the car's body are these scratches? If it is not a very noticeable place, you can just get a BMW touch-up paint pen or a small container of teh same stuff as well as some clear coat and take care of it yourself. Bavarian Autosport | BMW Parts and BMW Accessories and paintscratch.com can sell you that stuff. Paintscratch can even sell you spray cans. Oh, and I guess the dealership can also sell you the touch-up paint if you don't mind buying it from them.

Edit: I just read your most recent post. I guess if it is not worth $60 to you, then it must not irritate you all that much
