I hope this helps and you solve your problems, keep us posted.
you might have to do just that. my iS gives a long crank at times also, but i feel like that is only when the key fob is not in the center of the car. whenever i am turning the car on and closing the door with the key fob close to the door, i feel that lag. hmm...coincidence or not? lol
