I entirely agree. I think it is selfish. If you have comfort access, I never take the fob out of my pocket, so as a result, just end up touching the handle to lock or unlock. At that point, it becomes obvious if the car locked or unlocked, but it's not all that tough to do it with the fob if you don't. Personally, I live in a townhouse community with about 20 units facing the parking area and it's really annoying with beeping going on all hours of the day. I find it the same league as blowing the horn to announce you're home or leaving, and, FWIW, in my town, that's a fineable offense, but getting it enforced is almost impossible.
Again, though, the i3's operation is exactly the same as my 2011 GT...no lights or beeping if you hit the remote to lock it if it was already locked, just the sound of the solenoids activating, which, doesn't carry all that far.
