I don't quite get this smart car business. Why do they need to spend big bucks on beemers kitted out with technology when a simple, "may I see your passport" would have the same end result and cost several millions less, perhaps I'm missing something. Oh, you don't have your passport with you, how about some ID. You don't have any on you, that's an offense, do you live locally....you know how the story goes. 

It has the Bio metrics on board instant recognition dont need to ask Im not sure if it's automatic  I agree they dont need BMW's to do that just a simple phone app would do

It took my wife 9 years to figure out I was from Australia, not from Austria!   And that's after 3 trips down there!  It got tiring explaining Australia is between Indonesia and New Zealand......and Austria is next to Yermany. 

Why bother?

I will be fully compliant with their rules when  retire permanently.  I have also increased their financial requirements by a factor of 2 just incase.

 

If I could wind the the clock back. I would not invest (I mean spend) the considerable amount of money that I have done in Thailand. 

 

I have time. I am planning an alternative fir my retirement.  Those with sufficient money and time should do the same.

Many time I wish I had gone west instead of east
