So, if I understand this correctly, BMW puts everything you need for heated seats in all the cars, except the software switch to turn them on if you didn't pay extra for heated seats?

If I were a BMW owner, whether I'd bought the heated seats or not, I'd be some pissed.

All cars are built that way.

Some Cannondale bikes are sold with pay-to-unlock power meters. Even my own power meter has pay-to-unlock features, like L/R balance, etc. Yeah, I think that game is ********.

Well, then I am some pissed.

All PDK Porsches have launch control, but it is only unlocked if you pay for that option. Audi tail lights have US and Euro patterns, but you can only get the US programming active on US cars. There are things like that in all cars. There are lots of of hacks trying to access buried features in cars.

Why, when I were a lad, the only thing hidden in the car was that baggie of weed, papers, and old roach ends being saved for later combining into a superjoint.

It was 4 years ago this week that Mrs. GeneJockey, with The Younger Boy in tow, answered an ad on Craigs List and came home with the cutest puppy in history...

You paid for them when you bought the car. If you want to use them you must pay a monthly subscription fee. Yes, if you stop paying the seat payment, they turn them off.

That's a funny way to spell 'Falkor.' :(

It's now been 2 weeks since my stomach biopsy. No results from the lab yet. SMFH.

Speaking of cars, my 80year old neighbor gave his car to his grand daughter last Sunday. Late model Camry with low miles. He told her if she kept her grades up he would get her something upon graduating HS. He said she had straight As so she got the car. He has another older truck but is going to buy another new car.

It's the second car he's given to a grand daughter in the last few years. Nice guy.

Seems to me like a good way to build cars. And bikes. And what have you.

Bad news travels fast. Hoping this is slow, good news.

I've been battling abdominal pain since April. CT scan showed nothing. Had a colonoscopy and Endoscopy 2 weeks ago and colon was fine but I had stomach inflammation so they Biopsied it. And here I am.
I've been having a myriad of health issues. I could write a book. It would be in the horror genre.

my guess is they lost the sample. If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all. .

I had a stripped 2003 Toyota 4Runner and I added a few Toyota factory odds and ends that I ordered from an online Toyota dealer and installed myself. One item was a homelink switch that was plug and play. All of the homelink guts were already in the car. I remember adding another switch for something on the dash; pop the cover and plug in the switch. Don’t remember what it was but it was a factory switch for some pre-wired factory option.

Keeps manufacturing costs down by making them all the same, and then electronically activating those options that are purchased.

Seems like you could have the dealer do the activation based on an ala carte menu, but nope.
