Kessy (keyless entry) on my new GTI is awesome:
Kelly and I went out for dinner tonight. Poscol on Westhiemer might just be our new favourite “little Italian place”. It’s small, intimate, personable, and simple. It’s definitely not a dressy place, but I dressed it up with jeans and a black shirt all the same. Dinner was fantastic.
It’s only four blocks from our place, around 10 mins walk at the most. On the way home I decided I wanted to pick up a few things from our local supermarket and test the GTI’s interior lighting and headlights. As soon as we arrived I grabbed my keys and drove off.
While in the supermarket I bought quite a few more items than I expected to. I only brought one bag with me, so ended up with a couple of heavy plastic bags on top of my full-to-the-brim reusable one.
As I walked to the car park I realised I had not removed my key from my pocket before I put my wallet back in. This is not usually a problem because my pockets are big enough to reach around my wallet and pull my keys out. But tonight Kelly and I went out for dinner, and my jeans’ pocket is tight.
I fumbled for a little while trying my usual pocket manoeuvres without success. But soon I remembered: I don’t need to do this anymore.
I just walked up to my
boot trunk and lifted the handle and it unlocked itself. I put my bags in and closed it to hear it lock itself again. I then walked over to the driver’s door and touched the handle — the car unlocked itself with a double blink of the indicators and satisfying click. I hopped in, closed the door, stepped on the accelerator gas, err… brake, pressed the start button, and the car started.
I never had to touch my key, it simply had to be within close range of the trunk and door to open them, and inside the cabin to start.
=== UPDATE ===
I wish I had Kessy for my house :(
