I have a 2019 model but it's the same, need to pay the 300 for it to unlock. Quote from support:

Apple Carplay is only extended to those customers who have, or have had, an active subscription for at least 12 months. Since you have not had this before, the extension offer does not apply, but the service must then be purchased for.

What I'm understanding is:
BMW changed their CarPlay sales model (at least here in USA): they no longer sell the 20 year subscription ($300). They now sell yearly subscriptions ($80).
So all you need is purchase $80/year and the offer being discussed would make it permanently activated. That is... until they change it again.

Yes, same in UK. But in other parts of Europe it seems to be different like in Sweden. BMW should make a statement!
