    "BMW is now selling subscriptions for heated seats in a number of countries — the latest example of the company’s adoption of microtransactions for high-end car features.

    A monthly subscription to heat your BMW’s front seats costs roughly $18, with options to subscribe for a year ($180), three years ($300), or pay for “unlimited” access for $415.

    It’s not clear exactly when BMW started offering this feature as a subscription, or in which countries, but a number of outlets this week reported spotting its launch in South Korea.

    BMW has slowly been putting features behind subscriptions since 2020, and heated seats subs are now available in BMW’s digital stores in countries including the UK, Germany, New Zealand, and South Africa. It doesn’t, however, seem to be an option in the US — yet."

    Can you sell me a BMW that you don’t drive anymore? Or forget about the 50,000k you owe me and give me one of your older ones. Please and thanks.

    I woke up around 1:30am that night and couldn’t fall back asleep. I took a few benzos for sleep, but when they kicked in I happened to login here, instead. I wasn’t on a bender.

    hey @Slyk why you liking worms post against me in certain patterns? I already know most of Morse code. Jokes on you guys.

    You prick, I knew it. I hope your crypto crashes further.


    Enough of the Morse code. It’s not fair. Other mods would agree with me too so cut that s--- out, this isn’t SL. This board is PG.
