Audio Volume Problem

Hi everyone:

I just got my BMW 2013 X3 with the premium sound package for about a month and I like the car so far. However ever since I had the car, I been notice some strange behaviors with my volume settings. It seems to me that my audio volume level always default backs to specific default setting every time I park the car and restart it again. It doesn't matter what my audio source (ipod or satellite radio), I still having the same problem. Has everyone here experienced a similar issue? Or this could be just me of not doing something right? I tried to look into the manual, but i didn't find anything. Please help.

If it's going to a quiet setting this would be correct behaviour. It's a safety feature.

That's normal, and something the GF / kids love because I usually listen to music pretty loud when I'm alone, and I usually always forgot to tone it back down in case i'm not the one taking the car again the next day. Good feature in my books.

Doesn't the audio/hvac/headlights are also part of keyfob based memory setting?
