2017 BMW 540i xDrive Key Tries Too Hard

By  | 

While we do think that having a little more function on the key could be great, we think BMW might have gone too far with the BMW 540i xDrive key fob.

The first thing people will notice when they get their hands on the BMW 540i is the size of the key fob. Because it came with the display, the fob is a lot larger than the standard key fob.

Besides locking and unlocking the vehicle, it also comes with a keyless start feature along with a few extra features that match what the BMW Connected app does like display the status of the vehicle, precondition the vehicle, remote control parking and more. As mentioned, the driver can control their vehicle remotely using the display and controls on the key fob.

The key will also come with a micro USB so that users can charge it but there is also a wireless option. What do you think?
