    Not sure if this is normal...it doesn't do it for me on mine nor my old E36 saloon. Doesn't sound like a big problem though.

    I think at some point the car has had an alarm (aftermarket) fitted to it as there is a hole near the gear stick that would house small led light. I just hope it doesnt mess up then mess everything up. So do these cars have an immobiliser as standard???

    my E36 does this sometimes...infact all the interior dash lights come on and flash to the alarm on and off...never had a major problem though
