I'm not sure the incentive for BMW, or any major manufacturer, is there for OTA updates. Outside of Tesla, there are extensive dealer service centers that will cry foul about taking this 'service' away from them.

Before OTA updates become mainstream, I think a change in how cars are purchased will need to happen. People will need to be able to buy directly from the factory, and if desired, never step foot into a dealership.

A parallel in the tech world is how Apple and Android phones recieve updates. Apple phones get them straight from Apple. Android phones may or may not get an update depending on the 'dealer'.
