    Eh, rich toy, its fine. The biggest thing that surprised me was how hideous the door handles (or rather door holes) are, they look like open wounds.

      I thought the same thing about the appearance. It looks like the actual handle has been broken off.

      Well BMW have clearly had some dodgy design choices over last few years

    Imagine being chased by someone and thinking you could get away in your car and then have to wait for the door to open💀

      ​@Mephistopheles It’s an upper-middle management car…most folks who have this can’t afford a full-time bodyguard.

      Nuh, not really. I know guys with luxury cars, and believe me, they act normal and do not walk with guards

      imagine not realizing that this is the passenger door. normally a passenger doesn’t have access to the car at all, so this way it may take some second but you can at least access the car

      @Mephistopheles Its EV so the maintenance is close to 0.

    Probably after a week of owning one of these, I would have raged at how slow it opens

      Bro you just proved your poor cause your in rush, rich people take life slowly. So slow it down to get more money.

      Well, I don’t plan on buying one. So I guess it won’t be a problem

      @Need4Speed but rich people are still human so they are going to have human experiences meaning of they probably would still rage

      No worries it would break quickly and you would be back to manual doors in no time. 😂

      Just about to say that 😂


      “0” – Here you go, you dropped a 0 off of the end of that £10 😏

      ​@STOP PRE-ORDERING VIDEO GAMES! Naah bro, £10 is believable. 100 is too much.

      Slight difference in customer, Rolls Royce and BMW, even though technically same company.

      @AJ no. The quality of Tesla is so incredibly poor. But no Tesla fanboy would admit that. But that’s ok by me 😁

    I would be scared of it not stopping before hitting something each time

      It has a sensor so it doesn’t hit anything

      @LaRay Hale yeah….

    I’m sure you can adjust the swing time and pressure. I had shaved door handles and was able to have them open faster by adding more voltage to the actuator and spring lb

    I’d be asking the dealership if I could spec my car with normal door handles.

    Honestly if you live with someone who has a chronic illness and whatnot this is a nice feature. I wish my car had this so my dad won’t have a lot of problems trying to get in the car without help

    When Rolls Royce does everyone appreciates when BMW does it everyone is thinking about the dumbest reason to say it’s bad

      Rolls Royce is owned by BMW

    The powered boot opening on BMWs is this slow, but you can do it from the key as you approach so it doesn’t matter. Can you do that with this? Another question: will it stop if it’s about to hit something (a car next to it, a pillar or post, a high kerb if the road’s cambered and the car’s on a slant, etc.. you’d need a lot of sensors!)?

      It does have sensors so it won’t hit anything. The key part I can’t remember. Hopefully someone answers because I’m curious also

    Man, we will end up like the humans in WallE. What’s next, the seat getting out of the car so you can seat down in the street and then get brought into the car? Man, opening cars is good for your joints and muscles!

    Pressing an waiting is not better than grabbing and opening

    Depends on whether I can use the normal method as well. That would address all of the complaints I’ve seen in the comments. I certainly wouldn’t pay extra for it, but I wouldn’t complain if it were an additional feature on top of normal opening/closing and the normal way weren’t any slower.

    If you travel with a massive cake everyday in your hands. I see this working

    No good for when it’s pissing down with rain and you’re in a rush to get inside

    At that point just buy a car that opens and closes the door, as you approach it and when you get inside, automatically

    This feature helps with PPL who always bangs your door and avoids you from banging the door on your fingers.

    The best part about that door is if the motor goes you have to replace the entire door 👍🏻
