If you continue to have problems, you might want to check elsewhere in the forum for notes about your build date and/or do a VIN check to ensure whether you have a CCC or CIC. I'm an 11 E90 so am CIC (which is what this update was for) - CCC is DVD from what I understand.
There's a lotta reading and a lotta "what to dos" in here -- not always in the easiest to find locations!
