Yup, code it with ISTA, or similar software.

'Gigla' coded an E90 chime on my old E87.

Is the chime ment to come when you get in the car ? Thought it only came on when a warning light appeared ?

It's just the usual warning chime, seatbelt or whatever.

It's not set-up like the USA cars thankfully, our American cousins seem to need help remembering to shut the doors, bong-bong-bong!

Wobbles had a go and said it can't be done by coding could I put a newer cluster from a 07 plate in and have a newer chime.

You would need to replace your radio with an 08 or later model and code the instrument cluster to pass the chimes to the radio.
