: I don't see (and hear) my warning until the driver's door is opened.

: : I've got a '89 535i and according to the handbook I should get a warning on the check control display if I leave the headlights switched on.

: : All that happens when the ignition is switched off is that the side lights remain on.

: : Is this correct behaviour? I'd much rather have a warning.

Andy, In my '94 530i when the headlights are left on I don't get any indication until the door is opened, then the check control message "Lights On?" appears with the beeping sound you would get if the key was left in the ignition. I am unsure if your model and year has that same feature.
