BMW 5 series toolkit

So I looked in the trunk the otherday and the first aid kit, Hazard triagle, wheel lock, and tow hook were not in there. It was just an empty case. I called the dealer and they said it none of that stuff comes with the car anymore. Is this actually true? I can understand some of it but how are you supposed to tow the car or remove the wheels in case of a tire issue? Is everyone in the same boat? I have a 2011 550.

Tow hook and wheel lock should be there.

First aid kit and warning triangle do not.

Wheel locks are dealer add-on. First aid kit and warning triangle are free with European Delivery.

No wheel lock.

Warning triangle but that must have been left over from ED.
