BMW Assist Alarm

My mum managed to get many optional extras on her new suv, for free thanks to the sweet talk of one of her friends.

One of those features which I thought was pretty cool sharing because I have never came across it before was "BMW Assist".


The alarm system detects when there is a possible intruder in the car, and automatically activates the BMW Assist who then passes it on to the nearest authorities, and If i remember the car sales guy saying the car can alert you via the Key Fob or Text Message....



Anyone ever came across this type of alarm before? I know I aint!

Re: BMW Assist Alarm

how will it know, does it turn on if the car is in the proper lane or the driver uses an indicator?

Obviously not. I'm sure it activates after 30 seconds of the car being locked.

Re: BMW Assist Alarm

BMW Assist
well similar versions are out there especially in America they can tell if a vehicle has been in accident or can be triggered manually and aske the control center for assistance or covertly triggered if car jacking etc takes place

that is my take on it sounds like the BMW man has no idea !
