Is it worth paying for keyless entry?

Has keyless entry/ignition any real practical benefits? Is it worth specifying on a new Passat/Audi, or could I spend the money on a more beneficial extra?

Hi John,

I guess it's down to personal taste really. Keyless entry/ignition adds to the premium feel of a car and makes it a little easier to get in and out when your hands are full, but there are no other benefits that we can think of. Perhaps it'll help with selling the car on later?

Personally, I'd not pay extra for it and would put the money to use on something else. Keep in mind future resale when choosing and what extras are likely to grab attention.

Hope that helps you
