It is free for the first year and then an additional cost afterwards. Not sure if it is codeable. I'm assuming that the subscription is added as a BMW connected option.

Honestly the Apple Car Play is a gimmick. You'll use the new iDrive a lot more
Yeah I didn't really like ACP myself and just use the idrive.
