I took my '00 528i sport in twice. The second time I showed them Adam's post then they showed me the technical service bulletin from BMW NA which had come out only days earlier (last wk of Dec '99).

The bulletin tells them there is no current fix for the software bug and not to replace parts. Their only solution is to reprogram the key memory, deleting any steering wheel or seat memory. Not a problem for me since I'm the only one driving the car..problem solved!
