BMW Assist or NRMA Roadside?

My BMW roadside assistance is expiring shortly (along with the premium select warranty) and I'm undecided on renewing the assist or going with nrma?

Can any of you guys point me in the right direction and what's the pros and cons of each?

How many times did you use BMW Assist in the last year? What were the outstanding features that appealed to you?

Otherwise.... price V service... NRMA wins everytime for what 99.9% of people would call them for... flat battery, no petrol, puncture.. or a local tow.

I recently switched back to NRMA.
In the 10 years prior to this car, I called NRMA twice for flat battery.

My understanding is they are the same thing, just sold under BMW logo. I looked at the Pds for both and it was a carbon copy except in this case BMW was a couple a bucks cheaper.

Well I must admit I haven't called either for a quote just yet, but AFAIK they are pretty much the same hence why I started this thread

When I last phone assist, they sent out a bmw tech from my local dealership. TBH he didn't seem better equipped or anymore knowledgeable then a nrma tech.
