Earlier this month, BMW announced that it would be upgrading its latest iDrive 7. You have to pay for it, just like you do with Photoshop, Final Cut Pro X, or any other application you use.

If you happen to sell the car, the second owner can either choose to continue to pay the subscription prices for the features you chose or simply stop paying for them. BMW put out a short clip of someone wanting to purchase high-beam assist.
