when you get out of the car with the convinence package do the doors lock automatically? And if yes at what point and is this a progamable item?

No, they don't lock unless you lock it by touching the designated area of one of the door handles or by hitting the lock button on the remote.
Not sure if the BMW dealers can do any programming. Through iDrive, you can make minor changes like locking the door after the vehicle starts moving, or make it silent when you lock the doors, etc. The owner's manual does not mention any type of other programming. I was just reading over that section not too long ago! I hope this helps.
Designated Area of Door Handles with Comfort Access

  • Completely Grasp Door Handle, arrow 1.
  • For Driver's door, touch the area highlighted in the picture, arrow 2, with your finger for approximately 1 second.
  • For remaining doors, touch the area in the picture, arrow 3, with your finger for approximately 1 second.
You may also open the trunk without unlocking the car by just touching the release button under the trunk lid, and once you close it, there is no need to lock it. the doors and trunk will stay lock since it only gave you access to trunk for the period of the time that the key was detected by the car, and as soon as the trunk is closed and you walk away, it will remain locked.
