Are you sure it is the sitting down effect causing the problem - does your X3 have the comfort access thing or whatever BMW call it, where you wave your foot under the boot and it opens. I've read about pets (cats) passing by the car where the key is in proximity to the car, and the boot opens.

Not sure it would explain the clubman scenario though.

Code it out with Bimmercode so it doesn't function from the key or has to be pressed for an eternity
