    On every other bmw I have had when you put the key in the lock and hold it in the locked position the windows roll upm whereas on my current e36 coupe this doesn't happen, so my question is as such, is this feature an optional extra as my car has no sunroof or obc so was wondering if this is something that was fitted to higher specced models or if my car is broken

    My car has a BMW alarm, that includes 'full closure'. If your current car doesn't have the same alarm setup, then I don't think it's a standard car feature.

    Seems to be something to do with the yellow connector and whether or not you have the right door handles too!!!!!

    It only worked on cars after about 94-ish
    The electrics were all gathered to a central control unit.

    Somethine else they were fiddling with at the same time was the dim out on the interior lights, i think it went the early cars had it, then it was removed, then it came back again with the new module.

    Pull down your sunroof switch if fitted, if you see a mass of heavy cables into the white baccked switch, it's the early type, if it's thin wires into any other colour, it's the later type.

    If your bothered about having it, have a look at getting an aftermarket alarm fitted.

    But, i'm assuming your not too bothered about it though. It's one feature I couldn't live without now i've had it once.
