Question dealer says can't drop top via key fob

To those of you with convertible 3-series vehicles, i'm confused: the manual says that if you press and hold the UNLOCK button on the key fob, then after a few seconds it will transform the car into "topless" mode, provided that you continue to hold the button during the entire process.

However, at BMW of San Diego, they said that such a feature canNOT be programmed and is in fact NOT an option, contrary to what the manual says.

Meanwhile, my buddy up at Sonnen BMW in Marin says that it definitely SHOULD be possible, although HE says you need to hold the button for a ridiculous THIRTY SECONDS or so.


I would really love to activate this feature as it would be just awesome to be walking to the car, and have her top off and ready to go by the time i get to her
