BMW has added the ability to retrofit “over the air” into its cars.

Now the initial configuration of individual BMW models in Europe can remotely expand their own functionality for a fee. For example, when purchasing a car without heating the seats, it is now possible to activate this function by subscribing for a certain period of time or buying forever using a special application.

Some functions are available for installation absolutely free of charge – they are offered a trial period for a month with the possibility of a paid extension or purchase.

Among the options that are available for installation “over the air”, it is worth noting the navigation system, BMW Personal Assistant latest generation, a function that supports wireless connection of the smartphone, and a BMW digital key.

By connecting a digital key, the owner will have the opportunity to use their own iPhone as a key to the car. Support for Apple CarKey will get 15 models of the German company, off the assembly line after July 1 of this year.

In addition, it was recently noted that the new BMW M4 will receive a huge grille. The new M4 will reach dealerships early next year.
