I mentioned on another thread that I've ordered the automatic door opener for my M5 (Sept delivery in Australia). Is this option a waste of time or a useful thing? Has anyone else ordered the same?

we have the universal garage door openner and it is a great option. we have the e60 545i m/paket. it works better than our original grage door openner!

It's standard in the US. You don't have to clutter up the cabin with garage door and other remotes. I had one button that controlled my exterior lights when I pulled in to the driveway.

It all depends if you have an electric garage door/gates. A bit pointless if you don't ouich

Oh it gets worse - I've got several sets of electric gates to deal with (office, underground car park etc..) but have never got a universal remote to work them.

You have to have the right sort of signal or something - do you know if the M5's one works on RF and how you program it?

We love it! You have the option to handle 3(!) different garage doors! and its very easy to program and use!

BUT: Never forget to put the key in position II (ready to start engine)

Is there a way to make the built-in remote work with CodeDodger (rolling code technology) garage door openers made by Overhead Door Company and Genie? These do not send a fixed code but rather a rolling code. The remote needs to be authenticated with the opener for it to be recognized.

Yes. Check it out at www.homelink.com and, in particular, http://www.homelink.com/home/keeloq.tml

Best regards,
