Would be a good feature, but I don't believe there is.

they valves are electronic so they need the ignition to be on in order to exhaust the air to lower the vehicle.

Of course they could be wired up differently but the ECU would still need to operate in order to utilise the fail safes such as open doors etc

On the MY11 model access height can be selected up to 40 seconds after switching ignition off providing the driver's door has not been opened.

^^^ Yes, on mine, as long as the doors are not opened it can be lowered or raised within a certain timeframe after switching off.
I have got into the habit of pressing the down arrow as I slow down to park. That way, the car is pretty much lowered before or just a little after I switch off the engine. I do like the idea though of having a menu set option that is your prefered parking height Idea BMW F31 335D MSport+ xDrive Touring - Mineral Grey w/ Coral interior

England 

I had a RRS demonstrator with side steps and found they made it awkward getting in and out Shocked

I use access height and found they were close to floor height, too narrow and with the low roof height I ended up stepping over them and kept getting mud on my trousers Evil or Very Mad

Had side steps on my last disco and they were perfect with the high roof line - used to stand on the step then slide in to seat no problem - before the steps I used to get mud off cills on my trousers Rolling Eyes

I also found steps perfect for FFRR too - just not the sport IMHO Embarassed

It takes less than a few seconds to lower before leaving the car and then it stays lowered until I next drive off so is at the right height when we next get in “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”

Best select access height before you stop as the wheels splay out when lowered.

I agree, this would be a useful feature! Dread to think how many air compressor failures there would be if people actually used the height settings often though Razz

I use the access height at least once a day, compressor still ok.

The lack of automatic function is just safety/CYA reason. '08 RRS TDV8

I agree, this should be human decision every time you park the car due to safety.

you can already lower the car whilst approching the parking spot if you want.

Access also puts the car to sleep so it will conserve battery life for cars left for long periods Thumbs Up GONE - SDV6 HSE MY2012 in Orkney Grey.
