So then been studying this BMW assist stuff.
Questions - I've gone for the tracker version. Now is that through BMW or RAC or something?
How much does the assist option cost, not sure I paid for this ?
What about the online service thing ?
I did notice the junction numbers when I looked at it for this meet.
What do you mean by 'tracker' version, SJ?
Tracker is a vehicle recovery system, totally separate to BMW Assist, although our American friends get it organised as a BMW service within Assist- we, however, do not. :mad:
BMW Assist on its own costs £120 per year, which includes the Google mapping, automatic accident reporting, SOS etc.
Combined with BMW Online (reading emails & getting on the net in your car) it's £300.
You should get the first 6 months of BMW Assist free.
Online servicing should be part of the Assist package, where the car contacts the dealer to tell them it needs a service.
They then call you to make sure you're happy to book it in!
All the best.
