    I may just be late to the game but I just found out that I can roll my windows down with my keyfob by short pressing the unlock button followed by holding it down!:cornut:

    If you have a sunroof.... Keep holding the un-lock button and your sunroof will also open after the windows roll down....

    Yup Minis have had that feature since 2005 but it's cool when you find out by mistake.

    My 03 does it, and yes if you hold a 1st gen key to your chin it works further away from your MINI:crazy:

    I discovered it by accident. My keys were in my pocket at work, and I looked out the window to see my windows down and roof open.

    I now no longer keep my keys in my pocket at work.

    Well better late to the game than never! I always thought the second half of games were more exciting anyways :D

    Oh and the wife tied to yell at me when I showed her. She thought I "went out and bought another unnecessary contraption for the MINI". lol

    Careful... The transmitter RF will also cause you to start loosing your noggin hair.... It's also been known to cause your shorts to drop.... That keyfob controls many things....:biggrin5:

    I have a 02 and the dealer had to program the key to roll down the windows and open the sunroof. The fob originally opened the boot instead of opening the windows.

    My shorts don't droop, but the noggin hair is making way for a nice solar collector...

    Yea, mine will open the windows, 1 boot door and sunroof to "vent" position! I can almost make it do a dance right in my driveway!

    Sheesh! Mine, if I press and hold both the lock and unlock buttons for 30 seconds, it rotates the tyres front to back and vice versa and then auto-washes itself. Don't they all do that?

    I did this once, but the passenger window then wouldn't go back up all the way afterwards. Had to have it reprogrammed.

    Haven't tried it since.

    Nice feature, very helpful in hot summer months when parked outside... Together with popping the rear barn door by remote complete geek's guide to impress strangers on a busy downtown street...
