Do i just have crappy foot technique?
It's a cool idea, but poorly implemented in the F30.
I know it's "supposed" to work as I've got it to work, but, it doesn't work every time. My success rate is about 6-7 out of every 10 attempts.
If this were implemented correctly we wouldn't have to have several threads about this very issue discussing the "proper technique".
If it were implemented correctly it should work EVERY time you try it.
I know a technique that works every time, use the button on the fob or simply use the button supplied on the trunk lid.

Don't forget you have to have the fob in your pocket, or you'll just end up looking really silly continually kicking at your cool cars butt.
