A few weeks ago, I bought a second hand 525d .... Every hour, Big Ben
is ringing in the car :-)
This is not really a problem, except it rings loudly and I have a
heart attack each time !!
Does anyone have an idea on how I can deactivate that feature ? I
didn't find anything in the user's manual.
Note that the car is the current model with I Drive system.
Thanks to everyone who will help save my heart.
There is a button in my car that says MEMO. This button is to set a reminder
that you want to do something, perhaps set the radio to BBC, or whatever.
The button is a toggle, press it to turn the feature on, press again to set
it to off.

Sounds like you have set a speed reminder or something similar. Perhaps it's
quite cold outside - under 4 deg C = frost warning.
Lights on when door open?
Oodles of things.
Read the handbook and look at all the setting you can set with iDrive and zero
them all - then you could add up all the numbers in the VIN code and press the
dash reset that number of times to bring up the computer reset system - that's
the E65 system don't know if the 5 series is the same but a chat with a dealer
wouldn't go amiss.

Since you have I-drive - you may want to go to the friendly local dealer
and ask one of the sales-droids to demonstrate how to disable "MEMO"..
I'm certain no normal mortal could find it within the labyrinthine menus
