Either dealer mixed the key with one from other vehicle, or the previous leasee lost one and bought a cheap used one of eBay/CL, to avoid charges upon lease return.

Good: compared to E70, much better sound insulation, significant jump in diesel mileage (23.5 ->27.5)

Bad: comfort seats aren't all that comfortable, specifically the seat part.
