Thats a bummer! You can get activation codes around 60 / $90 I believe but still not as good as free..

Getting my car next week so gonna rip the drive then, I am using Ubuntu Live booting from a flash drive, and want to back the image up to my USB hard drive. Newbie to linux, wondering would this work:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb/idrivehdd.img

assuming sda is the BMW HDD and sdb is the USB hard drive.

Or would I be better off with using HDclone?
