    Does anyone know if there is an easy way on my 525D Tourer to have the ciggy sockets permenantly powered instead of turning off with the ignition ?

    Why do you want to do this mate?

    All you'll need to do is find a permanant feed rather than ignition feed, easily done

    To give permanent power to Sat Nav, Ipod etc. I didn't really want to start messing around with the cars wiring.

    I would hard wire it in, if you're unsure then let a professinal do it. The problem you'll have with permanant feed is if for any reason you forget to turn your equipment off or have it on too long without the engine running you'll find yourself having a flat battery
