BMW M5

CAR (UK) - - Our Cars -

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?
