2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Key Holder

December 22, 2014

2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo

One of my weirder traits, and there are many, is that I don't like anything in my pockets while I'm driving. I mean nothing. It's not that I wear tight jeans, although I have admittedly gained a few pounds since my shoulder surgery. Even when I wear cargo shorts with big pockets I like to be free of all paraphernalia.

So one of the first things I do when I get into a car with keyless ignition (which seems to be nearly every car we test here at Edmunds these days) is to find a good spot to store the key fob.

As you can see in the photo, I found such a location in our long-term 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo. There's a tiny tray next to the 12V power outlet, near-perfect for holding the fob in place, even during cornering.

I always have the lid open, which is good because it's actually not a great design for closing. There really isn't a spot for your fingers to grab it and pull the lid closed.

No biggie, I'm just glad the key isn't sliding around somewhere in one of the cupholders like it is in most of the cars I drive.
