BMW has become the first major car manufacturer to introduce wireless broadband internet access at its car dealerships.

BMW customers can now surf the web, check emails and access their corporate network when visiting BMW showrooms while their cars are serviced.

The wi-fi service, provided by BT Openzone, will be available in three BMW-owned London dealerships where customers will be able to work in lounges with coffee bars.

Andrew Day, head of marketing at BMW’s London operation, said, "We pride ourselves on a very high standard of customer service and the introduction of wi-fi enables us to stay at the forefront of the motor industry."
