The unlock button is located in the center console by the emergency light button... Or you can RTFM.

There is a setting in iDrive to have the unlock button unlock just the driver door or all doors.

Your 5 Series does that?? Our last (2) 7 Series, and 5 X5s did not unlock doors upon turning the engine off!

This actually has to be coded and is not part of your standard options that a dealer can help you with. Some forum members may be willing to help you out.
Usually it occurs when you put the car in Park and not necessarily turn off the engine.
Either way, it's a pain and I wish it was an option in iDrive. I have never developed the habit of hitting the Unlock button on the dashboard and it's always when I'm trying to open the rear doors that I remember.

Mine as coded so that whenever I hold down the engine on/off button for 1.5 seconds to turn the engine off, the key would come out and all 4 doors would unlock.

As mentioned above, you will need to have your car reprogrammed. Wuzin, a board member on here, was able to meet me locally and help me get my car coded with this and a number of other nice little features.

I'm getting my car coded soon by my friends friend. I'll let you know how it goes and what they've done for me. I'm in the NYC area and i'll see what he charges. I think he said free, but i'll find out.

That would be so greatly appreciated. Please just drop me a note via PM once you've met him.
