E46 remote functions?

Hey guys, I just wanted to know if there is a list of remote funtions for your keyless entry. ie. holding the unlock makes all the windows go down? Stuff like that. Sorry if this has been posted before I searched, didn't find anything usefull.

From what I know, hold down unlock to open all windows, and hold down the trunk button to set off the alarm. The rest is common knowlege (unlock, lock, and trunk open).

programmable features that I was interested in, not all remote functions though (my prefs):

whether you want all door to unlock with one touch of the remote or only the drivers door (selective central locking disabled)

Making the siren (w/optional alarm installed) chirp when locking or unlocking, yes they are each programmable, (no noise for me please)

Making the parking lights light or not when locking/unlocking (yes please)

Ability to open trunk with remote when car is locked/armed or not (yes please)

Car can lock itself after unlocking if door is not opened within 2 minutes (yes but thought twice on this one)

The above can be set differently to each key as well as other features per key such as seat memory radio etc. I prefer to have all keys work exactly the same but if it's a two person car you would want the keys to change that stuff, ie, when you open the car with the other key the seat & mirrors move to the setting last used for that key

DRL, daytime running lights (off)

Hot Country, not sure but it seems to have made my AC colder (enabled)

Rain sensitive wipers (Less sensitive)

and as far as opening the windows etc, each window is programmable, and the sunroof, whether they can use one touch or not from inside the car, and each is programmable for closing or opening, separate programs

Automatic locking after starting off (4mph I think) (I don't like that, it's a good way to break interior door handles, happened in my e39)

RC interior light (active)

Interior lighting:
On during unlock (active)
On at terminal R off, light on beforehand (active)
soft lighting (active)

Home lights can be set in duration from not active to 40 sec (std), 90 sec, 150 sec, 240 sec

Rain sensor wipers can be active or not

recirculated air memory (active)

I would like to have my car lock itself after 4 or 8mile per hr but I don't know if I can do it myself or do I need to have the dealer do it? Do you know how much they charge to do that? Thanks.
