    I thought that it was a card in your pocket that the car detected when you got close and unlocked when you pulled on the door handle.

    You can get something similar on the new Renault Megane and the New Nissan Micra for about £60k less! Not that I would buy a new micra, strange looking thing!:confused:

    It's only a matter of time until someone comes up with a 'universal'card. :p

    i dunno... the new prius looks kinda sweet... 60mpg... hybrid and has some really kewl looking tech init... plus it has the key card thing... if you have it on you and open the door.. it automatically unlocks like the merz :)

    naturally I would probably go with the merz if I had the money.. but since I don't... the prius hybrid/cvt is quite a nice option for the money...

    did I mention 60mpg ?

    Ewwww little compact cars. 6'6" people and little cars dont mix. Give me a full size gas-guzzling V8 pickup or SUV any day.

    The one with the remote zone card is Mercedes S600 - by standard. Think you can customize a couple of other ones to have it too.

    My friend has a 2001 Prius and he is 6 foot 3. You Brits... do the math :p

    He is quite comfortable in it. Leg room in the back is not bad, but not great either. I've sat in the front seat and in the back seat and I am 5 foot 11. Again... Brits do the math :D

    JJ I think you dream of a Hummer... the original ones. :p
