could it be the OBC beeping that its 1 minute to the hour?
ex.. at 11:59 it would beep 3 times, 12:59, 1:59...
dumbest feature EVER installed IMHO

to turn it off. you have to hit the MEMO button. it should have a "like" symbol (sort of like three curved lines) on it. it dissengages and engages it.

cheers

Either you have MEMO button turned on on your OBC or it beeps when temeperature dropping to +3 C

MEMO beeps 15 seconds before exact hour. so 1:59:45, 2:59:45 etc
It beeps to remind you to turn on the radio to listen to the news.
If it'on you have thise sign near your clock .))

Have you programmd the OBC for a speed of lets say 100km/hr?

If so, when you exceed this speed it will "chime", warning you that your exceeding the posted (on the obc) time..



My e39 does this and my old e30 also did it

Cheers,

Fern

The 3 chimes is for hour changing, it happens 15 seconds befor the change of the hour, the road freezing wrning is one chime with the EXT TEMP msg on the MID.

Every BMW has the temp drop, and its there to remind and warn you that its cold outside and the roads may have ice on them and be slippery*th-up*

NOOOOOOO!!! Don’t listen to any of those other posts!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3 dongs could spell catastrophe!!!! Next time, stop the car and get out fast!!! Than run (don't walk) to your nearest "block parent” and call for help...….. Your life could be in danger *wiggle*
