Mine's an audi, not sure if all VAG vehicles use the same? I think buried
somewhere in the menus it gave details of the MVNO it used, I'll have a look.

New (last 5 years ish) cars have a built-in mobile to implement the mandatory
e-Call system, once the hardware is there the manufacturer will use it for other
purposes, even though my car only came with 3 years "free" access to data, it
remains active with its own SIM, just that most of the features are denied to me
as the licence has expired, and to renew it costs silly money, relative to the
minor benefits provided.
