By using this logic you would not pay much if anything for keyless entry. Why pay for keyless entry when you can just touch the button on the key fob. Easy pee ze, right?

How much would you pay for the keyless entry feature?

By the way, you cannot actually lock the car while you were walking away. The reason I like the passive lock feature is that you can...

My Corvette locks every time I leave the car, but it does so automatically. If possible, I would prefer that the habit I have made with the Corvette also work on the BMW.

So for me, it would be...

I will pay $100 for the code if anyone can figure it out and tell me what it is. It is worth that much to me as my other car has it although I agree $100 is too much.

I have both of these coded as well. Now, if someone would just come up with the codes to allow the passive locking feature.

How Much Is It Worth to You?

What would it be worth to you to enable (or code) a feature that would automatically lock all doors when leaving the vehicle?

I know that other vehicles such as Tesla, Corvette, Cadillac have this...

Very happy with my new 2015 750 I with run flats!

We just went from our similarly equipped 2012 to a new 2015. Surprisingly, in a few respects, it seems like a slightly different and somewhat better car.

What is most surprising is the ride...

That's funny! When someone finds out what the special knowledge is, let me know. I would say press the door unlock button.

Isn't that special?

My hunch is that the cheat sheets are not fully inclusive and that somewhere there are adjustable parameters within the autolock feature.

Or is this just wishful thinking on my part?

It would be nice to have the car automatically lock when you walk away like Tesla and Corvette.

Is there any way to code around this shortcoming?

Apparently, after you use your wife's car you need to lock it with your key. Then when your wife unlocks the car with her key, it should bring up her profile.
