Comfort Access, no?

Because it wasn't running, of course. I laughed, but I couldn't help but be a bit creeped out by the idea that if I had stopped in a bad neighbourhood and not locked it, someone could easily have driven away with the car even without the key.
But I thought that the gear shifter doesn't move when the key is not present, at least that is how it works on my car with comfort access.
