This is true. This has been indicated since late 2019 /early 2020 that remote start will become available to ALL idrive 7 vehicles (including G30 pre LCI and G01 pre lci) summer 2020. As we all know this has not happened yet, and I do not have any reasoning as to why. This feature will become available as an optional extra to purchase on the Connected Drive portal when it releases.
