Anyone know anything else as I had assumed it would effect all the range with the new style "key"?

Sorry if its been covered elsewhere!
TBH Greg I think BMW are being somewhat economical with the truth here.

From what I understand there is a cut off point that BMW have arrived at,and decided that pre 07 cars are unlikely to be targetted (probably due to age), and rather than do ALL cars that are at risk,they are being selective at the cars that are going to be offered the update when/if it becomes available.

If you've not already moved your port,I'd suggest you do so,it is very easy.

If it gives you any comfort,I'm suspicious of the effectiveness of any upgrade,and I'll be moving my port back to it's hidden location post the upgrade.

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
