Has anyone received a discount from BMW Canada?

About a year or so ago I remember reading somewhere on the boards that some US customers would not renew only to receive a call from BMW offering the service at a discount (somewhere around $99 if i remember correctly). BMW Canada sent me a letter telling me to renew at $200, but never actually followed up with a call, so I did not have a chance to haggle.

For $100 i would do it as i did use the Google Maps send to car option a lot.

I love BMW Assist. I can send maps from Google from home or work, can readily see weather, yelp, google. Its a miracle. Why don't you all love it like i do? It is $200 a year but its so nice to pull up some place in yelp and then have the directions in the nav so easily. Oh well, to each his own.

Totally untrue. BMW Assist will save you ~$25/year on your car insurance no matter who the company is or in what state your car is "garaged"

I also use the maps send feature from home - what would be nice however
is if google app on my iPhone could send destinations as well - no send function
in the app yet...

Renewed. Mostly using the google maps to my car feature.

It was a very nice feature when I got into my accident.
