watched a valet stall the car twice. then he got out and told me he didn't realize it was a stick. that was the last time a valet handled my car. i understand the majority of them take it seriously but all it takes is for that one guy.

I was thinking that a hidden camera in the car, with audio would be a good solution. If anything happens to the car, you can always raise hell (with hard evidence)

I usually plan ahead where possible. I either pay the valet extra to self park or take my E36 "beater" (which I'm not as worried about).

I believe Mike Benvo offers this coding option and probably other tuners too.
No, Benvo does not offer this. Even if he did, you would have to bring your laptop, flash a new tune on the car and then flash back when you are ready to leave. It is not as simple as pushing a button in idrive.
