They also did 2-3 "reprogrammings" but that never did anything either.
We're getting to the stage where I am about to get another vehicle or get a refund (due to my state's Lemon law) and I just don't have the warm fuzzy feeling about the 2011 335i xdrive that I did before, especially considering the SES light in my loaner came on too! Very strange.
I wish it could have helped you more, cdruse. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for you.
I hope it all works out and you end up with a car you trust and enjoy!
