Luxury key with activehybrid?

Got an AH3 and the luxury package. But when the car came I didn't come with any special kind of key. The CA claims the hybrid doesn't give you the special package keys. Wanted to check in with some other owners to see if he's being honest. Any help will be appreciated.

So the standard key then? No pearl accent or red something? Good to know.

Does the key work?

I guess if you have several BMW key fobs sitting together, the colors may held distinguish one from another.

Odds are you could just ask the dealer for one of the other key fobs and they can have it programmed to your car.

My luxury line AH3 came with a regular black key too. I think your dealer is right. The key is different due to the AUX cooling functionality.

Congrats on getting an ActiveHybrid!
