The highly debated and generally unloved remote tailgate opening function is to be laid to rest from September build onwards.
It's replacement will be remote comfort opening from the plip key.
A single press of the key will unlock the car, open the windows and (if applicable) retract the sunroof.
Judging from posts here in recent weeks I believe it will be recieved as an altogether more popular remote key function.

I do not see any need for comfort opening in Scotland
The only thing it would do is let the rain into the car.
Even for those in warmer places how much use is it when you will only be opening the windows a few seconds before you get into the car?
I'd prefer to be able to unlock the boot with the remote.
My ONE is currently being build so hopefully should come with the boot opening.
Went to Largs this afternoon for an icecream. There was an unfamiliar bright orange object in the sky - the ol' current bun. Hello stranger!
Suddenly comfort opening seemed like a good idea. What a wasted rare Scottish opportunity for comfort opening, and frustratingly all I could do was to thumb the remote and get the hatch to make useless farting noises.
I really doubt if a "single" press will unlock the doors AND open the windows. What if it's raining? It does that in GB doesn't it? Here, a single press unlocks the driver's door, another press does the passenger's, and holding the button down for fove seconds opens up the windows (& sunroof if applicable).

I've been everywhere but the electric chair...I've seen everything but the wind.
had comfort opening via remote programmed today. most excellent feature, especially in the 80-90 degree hazy and humid weather in NJ, and expected to be in the 90's all next week. my sunroof and windows open when pushing the key down on the 3rd time.
