I went through the car key options and it only has convenience open as programmable feature. There is nothing for closing.

Sometimes I just don't get the liability logic nowadays and it seems there is no end to it. I wonder when they make the doors not opening anymore since those are real guillotines. The windows even have an antitrap functionality.... Oh well.

At delivery the salesman went over ever single detail on the car. The best thing that I learned was that when you put the key in the slot on the side of the steering wheel and turn it, the car starts! I was just in shock.

That seems to be true on the X3 as well and it's too bad X3 owners can't have it as well - they also have the pressure sensor that if they feel any significant pressure will reverse direction and open all the way. Having to use the key in the door to close it is a bit "old fashioned" IMO. Still, minor compaint for a great ride!

I wonder if there's a hack that can give us that feature. After all, it's the same computer isn't it?
