    Hi All, I have an F30 320d 2012 with the pro nav and "upgraded bluetooth" (I think that's what they call it). In order to receive my texts/emails, etc via ConnectedDrive, do you have to pay for their subscription via BMW (£70 for 6 Months of £120 for 12 months). If so, is this really worth it -...

    There is an advert for or something like that, you text the reg into the phone and they charge you £3 and let you know if the car is stolen, written off and clear with the police, BUT they dont tell you if it has HP on it, so really it is a waste of time using the service.
