FWIW, the car CAN lock itself with the CA remote inside. Mine has done it 3 times now. Each time, the fob was in my suitcoat pocket which I hung on a hanger behind the driver seat, closed the rear door, and the X5 locked itself. Luckily, each time it was in view of the satellite, so BMW Assist could unlock the doors remotely. If I had been deep inside a 3 story concrete parking garage, though, I would have been SOL. So now I make sure I always have the deiver's door open before I shut the rear door.

Even so, I have become addicted to CA. Every time I get a loaner without CA, I miss it.
