I have them on my 550i and I am glad to get them on my M5.
I'm getting mixed feeling about them. I went to the dealer and I thought they were a cool function. But they even said I'm 1 out of 10 that use them right. I guess most people just slam the doors. I wonder of this is bad for the motors or even if they are extremely expensive to replace. Someone said the motors alone are $400 so it's probably another $400 in labor cost. TBH it's a really tough decision. For me comfort access is a must have so I may just have to deal with them if it's only offered in the package.
