Question Keyless go system for M5

Any idea why BMW even on M5 do not offer “Keyless go” system! Never understood that! My friend owns Merc S 500 Lorinsser 2002 production with keyless go system and I like it very much.Feels and looks very sporty and in fact very convenient! Not sure how many years Merc use this system but at least for 3 or 4 years.

Does any one else thinks it would be very nice if BMW would offer keyless go system for M5? It would add even more sporty feeling?

Re: Keyless go system for M5

Maggo,

Are you absolutely sure about this? What is your source for this information? I am on the waiting list to get my 2006 M5 next year and I would REALLY love to have this option. I just don't want to be disapointed when I actually get it knowing that Keyless Go on M5 is not available. Thank you.

Re: Keyless go system for M5

Maggo is an insider for a BMW electronics supplier so I think this is correct.

thanks for your info Maggo!

i have few questions for you with regard to this option.

does it mean 5-series key will become those retangular thingy like 7-series and 3-series?
and do you only get stater button (and the special key?) with if you have such option?

thanks

Re: Keyless go system for M5

I believe MB's Keyless GO allows you to start the car with the start/stop button as long as the keyfob is somewhere in the car. I think that is diferent to the BMW's the have the rectangular key and the start/stop button. I think there is an option on the 7 series (comfort access??? or something) that is closer to MB's Keyless GO?????

Re: Keyless go system for M5

based on my experiences with Keyless o on my SL55 I would rather do without it. In the end I used to take the key along as well due to my lack of confidence in the system!!
