Let us know what you find out Wild M.

EDIT: In fact the manual states "The windows and glass sunroof must be closed for the system to function properly". Therefore our test through an open window would probably never have worked because it reads as if the motion sensor might be disabled in that scenario.
My test was to have someone sit in the locked car with closed windows and to wave their arms to try to set off the motion sensor. That didn't work for me. E90Fleet suggested there might be a time delay before it activates, but I haven't had a chance to do another test. I'm busy in Geneva this week. I'll experiment further on the weekend when I return.
