BMW Australia “still on track” to offer Android Auto by mid-2020

BMW Australia remains confident it will deliver on its promise of an Android Auto upgrade by mid-2020, despite concerns surrounding coronavirus COVID-19 and its negative effect on the automotive industry. In late-2019, the marque said it will integrate Android Auto into its iDrive operating software for the first time – and expand the system’s capacity to be updated with over-the-air (OTA) wireless technology – by mid-2020. “We’re still on track [for mid-2020],” BMW Australia told CarAdvice.

The new classics: the cars becoming collectors' items

As far as investments go, there's little doubt classic cars are one of the most fun. As it turns out, they're not too shabby as a financial decision too. According to a recent AXA XL Art & Lifestyle insurance report on the global classic car market from 2018 to 2019, classic cars have remained stable "against a backdrop of widespread depreciation in passion assets". Specifically, the AXA report noted "an escalation in demand for instant classic cars built over the last 10 years".
