We made an unpleasant discovery today on our 2013 Clubman. After using the remote to open the rear doors, the bag containing the key was inadvertently loaded into the rear cargo area along with a large dog.
But when we went to retrieve it, we couldn't. The rear doors were inexplicably locked. With the temperature in the car rapidly escalating, we had to smash the side widow out.
I am still awaiting the arrival of my new mini and have been avidly reading everything I can. I thought I read that you can unlock your car from the Mini app. You would of course not have to have your phone in the locked car! Is that not a "thing"?
