Unlocking your car has never been more convenient — BMW Comfort Access means you don’t need to use a key or do anything except for touching the handle. So, whenever your hands are full and you can’t rummage through your pockets, or you just want to get into your BMW fast, this upgrade will really make a difference.
Our Comfort Access keyless entry package consists of 2 or 4 handles with special remote sensors. They recognize your key at a range of up to 5ft, even if it's in your pocket or bag. This way you’ll be able to unlock your car by placing your hand inside the handle, or lock it with a single touch on the handle ridges. The sound signal will let you know when the doors are open or closed.
The handles feature a chrome trim and are professionally painted in any available BMW color, to perfectly match your vehicle. Please note that the paint on older vehicles may have faded slightly. In this case, the color of the handles may initially differ from your vehicle, but the difference will reduce with time.
Our Comfort Access system allows you to customize the keyless entry process. In the iDrive menu settings you can choose to lock/unlock all doors or only the driver’s door on the first touch. In some models, the system can also be set to automatically close the windows and sunroof, and fold in the mirrors, and no BMW comfort access key programming is needed.
Thanks to the BMW comfort access trunk antenna, our upgrade extends the keyless entry to opening your trunk as well. Just touch the handle and the trunk lid will unlock. To know more, read our blog post on how Comfort Access can be integrated with Power Trunk.
Please note that our Comfort Access retrofit is not compatible with the BMW memory functions, such as saved seat settings. These will only work when manually unlocking your vehicle with the BMW remote control key fob associated with each driver profile. In addition, it may not be possible to unlock your vehicle with Comfort Access when it was locked manually with the remote key fob.
BimmerTech does not guarantee that all features will function as described after any future software update, and can not be held liable for any change in the functionality of our BMW Comfort Access aftermarket kit caused by a third-party modification to your vehicle's hardware or software.
The installation is fully plug & play. It takes about 1 hour to assemble one door so that overall time depends on how many handles you order. In addition, no comfort access prograMMIng is required.
The installation requires disassembling trim pieces in many parts of the car. It begins in the footwell areas of the car (bottom of the dashboard), then branches out towards the doors through rubber grommets. Removing the door cards will be required along with replacing the door handles. Additionally, it will be necessary to run an antenna and cable all the way to the trunk. On some vehicles running a bit of wiring to the roof switch cluster might be required.
The kit includes all BMW parts necessary for a complete installation:
