    good question ? seen it a few times, not just on the bmw's but the likes of vw's and audi's, and want my 5 series to do the same, wait to see if you get any replys on here first as i am going to keep an eye on it too, otherwise an auto electrician with average knowledge should be able to sort if for you.

    Hey mate, I dont think this is possible on the e46.
    what I do know is that when you take the ignition out of your car, if you flash the main beam stalk twice then the headlights come on for like 30 seconds and then go off! I read about it, tried it on mine and it works!

    I would speak to someone like Bw chip tune as they can pretty much do anything with the software.

    Just found this

    http://www.gyrosmafia.de/cms/upload/...Memory_BMW.pdf

    External Lights Pathway Lighting (“home” lights)
    not active 40 seconds 90 seconds 150 seconds 240 seconds
    When the ignition is turned off, and high beams switch is activated momentarily (high beams “flash”), the driving lights are turned on for 40 seconds (if active). The time duration is programmable for 40/90/150/240 seconds on E38, E39 and E53 only
