DIY: Install Comfort Access?

If the E9x don't come with Comfort Access system, is it possible to install it by yourself?

Did the search, no avail...

Agreed! Especially considering the fact that you'll spend a lot more than the $300.00 original cost of the package.

IMO, if you didn't order the car with it, it's not worth it.

I like having it on this car, but I could definitely live without it. Didn't have it on my 330xi and I survived just fine. Its one of those cool factor features at first when you get the car, but now its just an "eh" feature since I use it every time I use the car. Instead of the retrofit, it would probably make ALOT more sense to throw the money into performance parts, but thats just me .
I do like to mess with people when they ask about my CA when I use it,

Me: "yeah, its kinda interesting. I had to give BMW my fingerprints when I ordered the car. So when I touch it, it retrieves my information from a mainframe in Munich, Germany and opens the car for me. All in .5 of a second."
Them: "Really?!?"
Me: "Nah...."

No problem. (It would be nice if the starting date of each thread could be included in the topic heading.)

I don't see the problem with bringing out an old thread. I got a kick out of the lol...



Its a discussion board right?

Not a "only talk about recent threads board" ?

Since 2007 any new way to bring Comfort Access installed? What about aftermarket?

The last person that asked I said it was tied to my DNA.

I wish BMW would offer this for house doors as well, would eliminate a lot of keys.
