Digital Key

I'm getting a brand new 1series, just a company car so nothing fancy sadly. SE model but I've got a few extras Included. It arrives this Friday, so latest model (F40).

Does anyone know if it comes with the option to use digital key? I have an iPhone and connected drive app.... but don't know if this is a standard inclusion or if only better models would come with it?

Cheers

Not too sure about that. I'm in Australia and mine did come with a digital card. I haven't activated mine yet but I have 3 years to do so.

Thanks. I just wondered if the card entry or digital (Phone / Apple Watch) entry was a standard thing now or with only certain models or inclusions.

My wife's car came with it but I think you either need Comfort Access or Comfort Pack II (which also includes Comfort Access along with a few other things).

It requires comfort access option to be ticked when ordered. But am unsure if all cars actually have the hardware and it will be subscription thing in the future. On the spec sheet there’s an asterisk stating 3 year subscription.

Looks like most models are included. I've just come back to BMW from Audi but remember in the past the extensions beyond 3 years were fairly reasonable. I think I paid £150pa for all of the connected services plus map updates after the included 3 year period.
