An update on your car has usually meant trading in the old and buying a new one. But with modern technology, an update might be just a few mouse clicks away.
There used to be a time when a “vehicle upgrade” was all about hardware that is on a new car: better performance; a new look and some more physical comfort.
But BMW Australia is offering owners online upgrades that can be downloaded and installed without the vehicle leaving the driveway.
Available on some and soon to be available on others two examples: High Beam Assistant which prevents glaring from your headlights for other drivers.
Drive Recorder saves video of your trip or automatically captures the previous 20 leading up to an accident.
With this trend I hope that car companies don’t play around with family controls for the sake of looking different.
