Absolutely agree- I was ready to kick up a storm if they had tried to charge me for it. I said something like "I assume that as the car is under warranty, that there won't be a charge" to which he replied to say it was "complimentary and they would be getting the cost back for the update via the group" or something like that.

As previously mentioned, I also bought a car with one of the selling points being OTA updates with "new and exciting features", as we all did. I didn't buy a Fiat Panda.
