Upgrade to Hands-free Key Card?

Just got our Grand Espace Dynamique (56 2006) and notice that an optional extra for Espace's is to have the hands-free key card. Ours does not have them - can I upgrade to them?

Not easily, and certainly not cheaply. It would probably have to be done by a dealer due to the number of computers that need to be reprogrammed, and I doubt you'd find one who'd entertain the idea.

Hi Mrfixit1999, Horatio is right, the amount of components that are required is quite extensive, including the card reader, the antenna assembly, door locks, door handles and the handsfree key cards themself ... then you have all the reprogramming plus other things that are operated by the card, see-me-home-lights, radio settings memory etc as the handsfree system works on a different radio frequency there is little that can be reused ... to be honest not really practical, and would almost certainly need to be done by a Renault dealer.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
