If you leave the key in the accessory position while the engine is turned off, depressing the REST button allows you to blow "stored hot air" for a while, to keep the interior warm. This feature is inteded to be used when you drive somewhere and park your car. It allows you to get some heat without idling.

If you don't have a BMW M5 Operator's Manual for your glovebox, they can be bought at the dealer for about $8.

Note the "rest" button was eliminated from MY2001 onwards.

Or can be downloaded in PDF format from BMW's Owner's Circle website.

The button was eliminated but I remember reading that the function is still there - but I don't remember how to activate it.

The 'REST' button is one of the most understated features of the A/C package in the car...

It works well for grocery store runs, and short dinners...
