Wouldn't be so bad if they put an unlock switch on the drivers door, at least then you could unlock the other doors without getting in the car.

That is one of those German oversights that makes me want to yell at their engineers.
I think it's a matter of striking a balance between options, usability and not over-engineering the car.

In terms of usability, the efficiency provided by CA falls apart if you have to touch the car twice to get it.
