Ya. I ran into issues with the alarm coding. Even now, my car will always flash the lights on locking/unlock or arm/disarm.
Before the alarm was installed, this door locking setting was fully controllable via i-Drive, as it should be. It appears the alarm coding messed something up, and the BMW center have tried to remedy it multiple times, but couldn't figure it out. PUMA case raised months ago ... but still no solution from BMW.
