Key fob case

I'm awaiting delivery of a 116i SE in the next few weeks (it left the factory in the last few days). My dad has the previous generation 118d and has commented that the buttons on the key fob can be easily triggered if it's in your pocket unlocking the car if it's in range.

I'm just wondering if anyone has ordered one of the Key fob cases from BMW and if they have, how well they prevent accidental activation of the buttons?


For anyone who is interested, the spec I've gone for is 116i SE in mineral grey on 17" turbine wheels (381). Interior is standard cloth with brushed aluminium and gloss black inserts. Options include driver comfort pack, folding exterior mirrors, rain sensor, DAB radio, service inclusive pack and model designation deletion.

I bought the key fob and fits perfect. No buttons activated at all... It protects the key very well.

Can't say had any issues with inadvertent button presses.

Thanks for the responses guys. Think I'll go for it just to be on the safe side.

I've found it pretty much impossible to accidentally press any buttons, to be honest. They require solid clicks, not just a light touch.

That's good to hear. I know the F20 has a different key design so perhaps there was some customer feedback.

Doesn't the car auto lock again after 30 seconds, if you accidently unlock with the remote but then don't open a door?

My dad's older model didn't and it had to be set up via the indicator stalk. That wasn't a problem until the dealer managed to wipe the profile off of his key last week which got me thinking.
