Correct. Having spent a day with the new 7 I can say that the display key is cool but could just as easily be an app on your phone. There aren't that many features, until they enable the self parking.

My understanding is that all BMW keys come pre-programmed from the factory and require a VIN to order, so there'd really be no way to get an i8/7 series key coded for another car without knowing someone important at BMW.

The new "smart" keys do look pretty cool, but they are brutally expensive (definitely over 500) and you have to plug them in every night to charge them up. Personally, I'd rather stick with the normal brick key that never leaves my pocket.

Why do you want one more thing you have to charge?

I hope that if it does trickle down, its as an option - I would rather have any additional functions as an app.
