After the software upgrade was complete, I noticed several changes in my iDrive while going through various functions.
- ability to turn off the display of the cellphone signal/radio box in the upper right corner
- different layout by having more options when in a call (i think it looks better)
- ability to create conference calls when in a call
Other menu functions are slightly different
Performance wise? - I don't feel any significant changes
I brought my car in this morning for a number of things, i.e. door lock recall, scheduled service, etc. and my SA told me they were replacing
my HPFP. No software, but completely replacing it.
By the way, Parkview is the best. They are so damn nice to me and you are in and out quickly. Plus, I got a brand new 2011 328xi with 600km! as my loaner.
