This does not surprise me, it the system has the NFC and EMV in the POS terminal and the transaction is being router back to the US or through a US based bank or CC company it should work. It no different then using you CC mag strip over seas, I travel with my US cards and they work overseas even though they are not NFC or EMV. The issue overseas is if your bank in the not a US company and is not part of Apple pay then it will not work in your counter or anywhere else....
you know the radio in a BMW does more than just play music, it handle some of the computer control functionality of the car.
yeah go check out youtube on people who installed  aftermarket systems  on cars with a manual trans only to find the car crashed into something.
My 07 BMW does this, my BWM will unlock the doors, set the car seat to my preference, set my radio preset, As well as the voice command i use for dialing my phone and set my address books in the cars radio to allow voice dialing. as well as my mirror positions all as I walk up to my car.

and if you do not install Anti-Virus the watch will suck the life blood out of you. Of you could catch Ebola.
They still will not have your name and address, but to your point I notice that most merchants are either asking for a phone number or email address this is how they tracking, but you have choose to share with them, but with the current CC process they take you address and name without asking you. In the case of walmart they may never allow or move to Applepay, why most of their customers are not apple users, walmart customers are budget buyer which are not apple customers.
