    Just received my (pre-owned) S 85D a couple of days ago :)

    I'm very happy with it but I'm just wondering how long it normally takes to have the doors closed automatically ?
    As I walk away now (and don't close the doors using the fob) it takes a lot of time to have them closed by the car itself (about 10 seconds).
    In that time I already have entered my house and can't check if they did close after all....

    Is there something like a setting so it closes when I'm 3 feet away from the car?

    10 seconds sounds about right and that is what I also get on my November 2016 build.
    Mostly I just close it from the fob, unless I am parked at home.

    Yeah I was worried about this for a while and got paranoid about it being unlocked but then I just used the Remote S app when I walk away.
