X1 comfort access

Does the X1 require you to insert the key into the ignition to start the car, even with comfort access?

I know there's a start/stop button, but do you have to insert the key as well?

If you have comfort access, no you don't have to stick the key in. It does have a slot for the key like all other E chassis cars though.

BMW recommends putting in each of the two key fobs in the slot periodically during an extended drive to re-charge the battery.

Awesome! Thanks for the replies!

I'm switching out of a vibration-plagued 2012 328i into a 2013 X1.

With Comfort Access, the key fob does not get recharged in the ignition and instead has a replaceable battery.
