    Give me a key. It doesn't run out of battery. Ever. You really want to impress me? Concentrate on making a decent car, that's all I really ever wanted.

    Can we get a video of this? I'm struggling to picture it from the description. Sounds cool, weird, and unique, just the thing you guys should be covering. Thanks

    "Easy, you put the key on the passenger-side windshield wiper and then push the handle in, it'll pop out and let you in."

    I actually read this twice, because the first time did not make any sense.

    May we see a video of this?

    Does the fob have an RFID inside?

    Can you open any door then or just the front passenger-side door? I am wondering why they put the reader near the passenger-side windshield wiper instead of the driver's side, so that you wouldn't have to walk all the way around the car? Any chance the reader can read the fob from the driver's side windshield wiper?

    Thanks for adding this car to your fleet. I will be reading every post about it.

    Seems like you could easily lock or unlock a door by accident if you have this key in your pocket or purse. Nissan/Infiniti has the same issue with their Intelligent Key because the buttons are raised and easily pressed.
