Swag

It was nice to get this BMW swag in the mail today. BMW should consider moving up from 2GB to 8GB at least.

Is every new F30 owner getting this? Or are different people getting swag?

I'm just glad it wasn't the same size as the F30 key fob!

2 gigs? What's the point? Crikey they practically give those away at any staples, target, etc. Super cheap.

I use a 128 gig flash drive, with about 100 albums in WAV format (uncompressed audio!)

A few years ago it was Ted CDs. At your year anniversary expect a water color painting (at least that is what it was on my last two new BMWs).

The best swag I ever got was a coffee table book for my 08 128 vert. First us year of the one and the book commemorated it. It has a replica vin plaque on the back page.

If it bothers you that much to receive something free, send it back
cheers

I remember spending $300 on a 2 GB flash drive few years back. Now 128GB is less than half that.

What if car tech progressed at that rate?

I took delivery on 8/27 and only received mine last week, so they didn't forget you.

My friend in California who bought an F30 not only got his USB from BMW but also a bag of swag from his dealer. BMW hat, keyfob, mug, bunch of stuff. I got a rock.

Every dealer is different. In addition to BMW sending swag my selling dealer...also in California... gave me swag at purchase and continues to send me stuff annually. Typically pens, hats, keychains and Christmas/birthday cards. Last year it was free passes to mission impossible.

There are 3 dealers within 25 miles of me and 4 more on my daily rt commute of 120 miles. It's just good marketing to keep the customer.

Got the same few weeks back.

My girl got this sharp looking 4 gig when she got her 500. BMW should at least give 8 gig becuz 2 gig is useless.

2gigs doesn't hold much these days, but at least the casing feels rather hefty, not some light weight plastic - might use it as a paperweight.

It may not hold much data, but it should handle your car settings. That way you can back them up when in for service. And copy them to your loaner.

Damn! I didn't get anything from Fiat when I purchased my '72 124 Sports Coupe! Oh well, it was one hell of a fun car...

Good call. That's probably what I'll use mine for, when I get it.

I did ED on 10/17, and just got mine yesterday 12/10. It's nice. Small capacity, but as someone noted, seems like a nice quality.
