MONTH 4 By Mark Walton
THE M5 Display Key is 6cm wide, 10cm long and 2cm thick – nearly as big as a mobile phone, and almost as heavy. The touchscreen allows you to lock doors and check the fuel range from your house (assuming you’re in range). It came as part of a £1195 Comfort Package, but you can buy it as an individual extra for £235. I’d rather have a key as slender as a credit card – and surely the greatest luxury in modern life is to be unencumbered by stu that needs recharging?
