    I have a E46 330d Touring and want to set the drive away locking function on the car. Is it something simple that anybody can do, or can i either go to a local garage and get it done or does it have to be completed in a BMW service centre?

    I called up BMW and they said it will cost £180? I refuse to pay this amount for such a minor thing.

    I live in North London, if there is anybody who could recommend a garage i be most grateful or if they can tell me how to do it myself.

    in indy will do it , mine would charge 45 quid, think about it though mine got it and i detest it but am to tight to have it turned off, btw it works on engine revs, have a look at the post e46 hidden features there quite abit you can turn on and off on a e46

    If there's a member local to you with the diagnostics software & lead, I'm sure they would do it for a few beer tokens

    I got this option activated just after purchasing the car, and I have come to regret it!!

    If you live in a city where car-jacking or theft from your car whilst at a halt is prevolent then I can see the + for having it enabled.

    But if like me! Your wife (or any passenger) cannot fathom that when you want to get out of the car then the initial pull of the door handle "Does Nothing" and if it is realeased gentley and then re-applied the door will open!!

    Instead my missus (even after nearly 8 months of owning the car) consistantly tries to rip the handle out of the door card on the first attempt.

    I have become very fast at releasing the mechanism using the center button console as I see her hand rise to grab it.

    If you can wait I'll be in Kilburn on the 6th July, all I'd ask for is a donation to the forums ?
