Finding out which PW was initially set by your dealer (in the very first Assist documentation that they fill out) helps. Sometimes using the account name in capital letters helps.

In my particular case, nothing works to log in. The initial PW, the changed PW, resetting the Assist UK PW at the ConnectedDrive site, using capital letters, using lower-case letters, nothing.

Mine didnt work until I got the bmw assist log in information MY salesrep setup for me first. I had since changed it and tried using my updated user name and password for that app and it didnt work. Once I used my the log in information my sales rep signed me up with, the app worked for me.
