F36 Rear Comfort Access Handles?

I'm fairly certain I don't have a botched car, but can other GC owners confirm that there is no Comfort Access functionality on the rear door handles?

Thanks for checking! Such a weird thing to omit. As someone who likes to throw a briefcase in the back, the lack of CA is really a bummer. I just need to retrain myself to grab the front handle first.

This is really good to know as I never though about this... although, I think it's potentially safer not to have CA on the rear handles.

I thought it was weird as well that the F3x didn't have Comfort Access on the rear doors. The S4 (which was the only other car I considered) did have Audi's version of Comfort Access. This doesn't bother me as much since I'm generally the only one driving, but I agree with somebody above - I like to toss my bag in the back when I'm driving home and this just makes it that little bit less convenient. Oh well, I've had the car long enough that it no longer bothers me.

Yea I had to get used to this. Especially annoying when I used to leave my keys in the bag that was in the back seat. Wish there was a door unlock button on the door where the window controls are like most other cars.

Agreed. Not sure why the door unlock is by the hazard light switch either. Oh well. Just something to get used to.

Coming from an S4 this was surprising and a bit disappointing but as noted being able to open the trunk with the "foot wedge" is excellent. Why can't at least one car company get EVERYTHING right?

Our X5 has them on all 4 handles...I guess our lowly 3/4s aren't worthy of two extra sensors
