Now it sounds like keyless starting is standard so the CA is just for the door handles now? Can anyone with CA clarify this?

Also - does anyone else hate the fact that you can't order CA as a separate feature anymore and is only included in the Premium package?
you are correct. keyless start is standard. comfort access adds the doors and trunk.

and yes, i wish it was a stand alone option.

bmw 3 series leather is very poor quality leather. i've had both leatherette and leather, leatherette wins out in terms of durability and low maintenance. lumbar support, i never use, sirius radio, i either listen to streaming music, FM HD, or just the growl of the engine. the only part of the premium package i wanted was CA, and it wasnt worth it.
