We've got a really tight fit in our garage. I back out my 750i often for my Wife to run errands. Can't tell you how many times the "No Key Detected" warning has already cleared by the time my wife gets into the car. By that time I'm back inside working. 30 minutes she will call me bc the key is still in my pocket at home...has happened 3 times
