MotorHeadline: Thanks for your subscription



Subscription services have been a part of modern life for decades now.

A quick glance at my bank statement shows small monthly charges for streaming services, software, The Augusta Press and even a gym membership (I swear I will go there one day.)

These charges are so ingrained into our lives...

  1. As if cars aren’t expensive enough?? Why have all this luxury electronic equipment on cars with the possibility of the electrical portion having issues and also having to pay a subscription for them to work? We already know chasing down and electrical problem on cars is costly. Guess we’ll all have to order “kit cars” and select the features we want so we don’t have unused electrical wiring/computer chip’s effecting other items.

  2. Just another reason I would never buy a BMW, not too mention terrible mechanical problems after the warranty expires. The top three cars in this category are 1. BMW 2.Mercedes and 3. Cadillac.

  3. I think BMW is taking this to an extreme. Having to pay a subscription to make a creature comfort operational, is nuts. When we took delivery of our new Ford Edge, I did notice the “subscriptions” I have to look forward to, after the pre-paid subscriptions run out. Navigation Services is one, and they do not spell out the future cost — YET. There is already a cellular modem activated (AT&T), they did offer me a “trial” of Amazon Alexa, so I could listen to Amazon music stations and podcasts, which I thought was neat. I guess we are all going to have to join some “collective” at some point in time, but really BMW, a heated seats subscription ?? Really ??
