Sorry if this is a repeat of previous posts, and I found this on the E65 board so the credit goes there...

BUT - thought it worth posting the references again here for the following reasons:

The optitions for climate control may help you with addressing some operating concerns.

Other questions keep coming up about various sub-systems. The operation of your car depends on how these options are set on "your" car.

They must be set by the dealer with the DIS, or portable programer.

Dealer can give you a printout of how they are set on your car - good for future reference.
The printout will look very similar to what you see on these samples includiung showing the default settings, the current settings for your car, and which ones you can choose to change.

These vary greatly by car model and time of production.

There are 2 versions on the link - there are some differences based on when this data was originally pulled.

Some of it looks newer than I remember so some may only be available to the new 7, but most of it looks like what I have seen for the E39 for some time.

Note - any time you take your car in for maintenace it is not a bad idea to have them note the current settings, and make sure they aare the same when they return your car. Some maintence work can cause things to go back to defaults - especially if components are replaced.
