7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
The next generation G11/G12 BMW 7 Series flagship forum. Unveiled June 10th, with production starting in August the 6th generation 7 Series comes in a light weight package with extensive use of BMW i carbon fiber technology. The interior quality raises the bar with a touch screen and gesture controlled infotainment system. Exterior styling has been a sticking point with mixed reviews so far.

I paid for the display key, as well, but agree that it's useless. I haven't touched it since the day I brought the car home. I am glad that BMW made it right by offering a second regular key to the people who paid the $250 for the display version.

This is a broken promise. There may be a legal out for BMW, but they should take the high road (and sensible customer relations road) here and if retrofitting is not possible, refund or credit the display key cost for anyone who purchased one. The display key is now standard but remote control parking is an option.

I bought mine in July but I am sure that they will still give me a hard time. When I talked to BMW Genius they flat out said that they don't do retrofits.

If they promised you the availability, they should live up to it.
