What is officially called "Comfort Access" by BMW I think of as "keyless access".Pressing a button to unlock doors has been around for 20 years.I don't attach any label to that capability today.

Just saw the 2016 "build it" site for the 7 Series.It lists a space saver spare as an option for something like $150.Don't know if it would be suitable for an F30.
