Hey GB..since you review these posts and have a strong sense of what is going on....do you think BMW is working on the 'antenna/key' problem? Follow up question for you, any crystal ball guess when dealers and owners might receive a word from on high how to circumvent or prevent these failures? These are not loaded questions...honestly feel you might have a handle of this...thanks..
