2020 750: Keys on delivery

If you order the remote parking option, you will get a display key and ONE regular key on delivery. This despite the fact that if your order without the remote parking option you will get two regular keys. This is a change from MY 2017. When I took delivery of my '17 750 in November of 2016, it came with the display key and two regular keys. So the real cost of getting remote parking is even higher because you now both pay extra for it and lose out on a key that would otherwise be supplied.

I pointed out the unfairness of this to my dealer and, to their credit, they agreed and ordered a second regular key for me at no charge. Not all dealers will do this, so be aware of this.

I found it surprising that for a so-called flagship car, with a six figure MSRP, that BMW would choose to be so transparently cheap.

That's very odd of BMW. Good that you demanded the obvious and thanks for sharing so others can go the same route.
My 2016 came with one optional display key but with two regular keyfobs.

My '17 also came with display and two regular keys. Another reason I was pissed.
