2011 BMW 528i: Radio On

The radio is on. And it doesn't want to shut off in our long-term 2011 BMW 528i, even after you cut the ignition. The radio doesn't die til you lock the doors. And because of this, I can't even tell if the ignition is off unless I look at the tach.

Now I understand this feature may come in handy when you bring that superfox to Make-Out Point. But for me it's a bit annoying for everyday use, such as when you have to retrieve your gear from the backseat before you go inside.

At least I got to share JLo with my neighbors.
