Well, think about it, it may work out to be a no-brainer for all involved. If they discontinue BAP for future ED owners, then the current BAP becomes a hassle for MB. With only a few thousand ED owners enrolled in the US, and the many ED getting sold with transfer issues, it may be too costly a logistical issue for MB to maintain. It would seem to me to be cheaper for MB to simply replace the BAP with a warranty (out to the same end date) and entice those in BAP to either pay something like $3000 to buy the battery and switch to the warranty or pay $50 a month to switch to the warranty. MB loses a bit of income but gets out of the quagmire that BAP transfers have opened up, while everyone in BAP would obviously jump at the chance to have the same battery coverage but at a greatly reduced price. Everyone wins.While they could "offer" an alternative, MBFS has a 10 year contract with current BAP customers.
