Full disclosure, I currently drive a 2010 Lexus, but I'm going to purchase an X3 early next year. Not sure how a BMW with keyless would do under the same "test".
Cool. Thanks for trying it. If it is just distance, I don't know how the car can differentiate inside from outside so long as you are close. I don't get it. Any ideas?

If you have key-less start, can your car start if you stand just outside the car with the window down? lol
