Yesterday night BMW assist calls me at home to tell me that my 1st year
subscription to the BMW Assist service has expired, but they are
willing to allow me to renew at some discounted price, yada, yada,
I decline the renewals in a polite but firm manner "eg. I don't want to
purchase the service. Have a good night." and the rep. reminds me that
my car will be taken out of their system, etc. I reply, "I
understand." We hang up.
Interestingly enough this morning I find my car (inside my garage) is
locked. Keys inside, where I always leave them, in the cup holder.
This is the first time the car automagically locks itself with the keys
No harm. I take the plastic key and open the car.
I am wondering if BMW Assist locked my car maliciously or if it just
happens when the car is taken off the system, or if it is just pure
Anyways, that is my story and I am sticking to it.

Yeah - how would they know he leaves his keys in his car? If he'd
taken them with him and locked the car (like, say, a normal person),
he'd never have noticed.

Have a look everywhere in your house, in the fridge, in the MW oven, your
wife's panty drawer, the washing machine, the aircon, go to the cellar, open
and drink all the bottles you have, peep into the bottleneck. Something
might be inside.
Seek every clue, review all the photos where you were shot on, especially if
the safety pins are going cross your eyes.
The vendor might have left something causing a big trouble to you.
If you don"t find anything, sell the house, change your car, your wife, ...
This is the only way to break the spell.
Keep us informed.
You forgot the most important part of the instructions.. to wear his
aluminum foil cap when doing this.
If he doesn't who knows what nefarious things BMW Assist might beam into
They're out there..
