I'm figuring it's a new bit of electronics, talking some low energy bluetooth. I'd be more bummed if I used mine more as it's mainly for visiting (family) drivers to have something somewhat familiar to hold onto... and also so I don't have to think about setting up the app on other phones and stuff. Still.. bet there's not a trade in policy.. ha ha

If we tweet enough at Elon it might work :p but I honestly got it because I just thought the little car is cool so passive entry or not I'll always have my phone & a keyfob

If the updated M3 fob supports passive entry I'll buy it. Does anyone know if it supports walk-away locking too?

It drives me crazy that the M3 fobs don't work like my M6 fobs.

Yeah it does both entry and walk away lock. At least according to the product page.

I already had a keyfob. Just bought another. Only reason I bought it is because the passive entry on the phone is so crap. Is it wise to even try to sell my old keyfob?

If someone can confirm this is a whole new passive key fob, different from the one offered previously, I would like to order one before they sell out. Last time it sold out, it was unavailable for at least 6 weeks.
