Sorry for the intrusion into your forum, but I thought I'd let you know the following, for those who don't yet know.
I've just been speaking to a lovely lady at BMW ConnectedDrive UK, about their telematics service.
I've got some good news, for anyone who hasn't yet heard.
In the opinion of BMW Germany, European BMW ConnectedDrive customers (Assist / Online) will now receive the complete service free-of-charge until September 2010- no longer just 6 months!
So, if you now have an account, or are thinking about taking out an account with BMW ConnectedDrive, there will be no annual (£120 UK) charge for Assist & no (£300 UK) charge for Online (if
you have the Online option, although it is retrofittable)!
How very nice of them!
For more information, give BMW Telematics a call in your own country.

All the best.
