My local dealer service shop foreman contacted Assist with the issue and they took care of it. Too many times we complain in these forums about poor or even mediocre dealer and BMW service, but this time they went above and beyond what they are contractually bound to do for a customer. And for that I say thank you very much to both Ft. Lauderdale Imports and BMW Assist.

- this confirms that as long as there is a GSM TCU in the vehicle it has the software enabled to receive Google messages, connect to BMW Search Online services and even to send the vehicle location to another email address (part of the Convenience Plan) regardless of model year.
