At least what I can do for sure is enable the SOS calls, so you will be able to call Assist and they will get your location. However enabling full Assist with their services does not depend entirely on me...
Oh I did not know that, I was under the impression that BMW Assist, in any form, wouldn't work. All my dad wants it for is the SOS calls/vehicle tracking; we don't pay for the concierge features or stuff like that--it's primarily a safety device in my car. OK great! I'll shoot you an email with my VIN and we can talk about pricing for a telematics combox + 6NR retrofit. Thanks for clearing this up!
