Presentation mode

The Presentation mode is used to operate the vehicle functions in showroom and trade show vehicles to demonstrate these to the customer.

This mode enables the vehicle functions to be demonstrated to and operated by the customer without a vehicle-specific ID transmitter and without starting the engine.

In addition, vehicle functions that could potentially cause damage in showrooms are deactivated. For example: Wash/wipe functions, power window or the electrical slide/tilt sunroof. If the ID transmitter is located in the vehicle interior, these functions will be operable.

The Presentation mode is activated in the service menu via the BMW diagnosis system. Furthermore, this mode is only effective in the "Residing" driving condition.
