Needless to say my port has been relocated.
I tried to book my 56' car in earlier this week, they just fed me the usual "cars from 07' only, your car is not affected sir" and would not budge
What a load of bollacks.
BMW should sort this out for pre 07 cars. I wouldn't be surprised if insurance premiums go up for pre 07 cars, as according to BMTrouble there is no security fix and as we all know they are still being stolen.
