  3. E60 2008 530d - ignition fob (dumb question!)

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi there - I've recently changed my E60 from a 2004 model to the 2008 model. The new car has a fob to insert in to the ignition (not a key) and a start/stop button. The previous car had a 'position 2' for the ignition (radio etc on, ignition off), so you could listen to the radio/cd whilst...
