Comfort Access Radio Issue

I have a 2011 Z4 3.5i M Sport that I recently bought used. It has Comfort Access and premium sound, nav, iDrive, etc.

While out to dinner last night I parked the car. When I returned the Comfort Access did not work (ie. did not unlock doors when I touched the door handle) and I had to open the door using the remote.

Then as I started driving I noticed I could not get any radio stations clearly on either FM or AM. My iPhone worked fine and I could play songs off of it fine once I plugged it in - so the sound system was working. I had a 45 minute ride home and the radio could not get a clear radio station at all the entire ride home... it was like I had no antenna - or like the radio stations were so far away all I got was static and a weak signal. I convinced myself that someone had damaged my antenna.

When I got up this morning and went for a drive - everything worked fine - the Comfort Access worked fine and the radio worked fine. Same this afternoon and tonight. I tried it with both key fobs and there was no difference between the two.

Does anyone have an idea about what the problem could be?
