If the engine cut out as the keyfob goes out of range, could be disastrous. Imagine - you drop off your partner who has the key in their pocket, pull out into busy traffic, engine cuts out...
I was more concerned about the tea leaf walking past when my car is warming up who then drives off! Saying that, if BMW had a "kill" option that would do the job!!!!!
