You can determine whether your vehicle is one of them by making the following check. Select the following in the Menu: “My Car” > “Settings” > “General Settings” > “Remote Software Upgrade”
If “Remote Software Upgrade” is not shown, the car is not compatible with Remote Software Upgrade.
The Remote Software Upgrade is factory installed, a retroactive purchase is not possible due to hardware restrictions.
