The better question is, if they messed up the BMW apps, what are the chances they just program the standard 335 engine map instead of the boosted map since they seem to be forgetting so many things.

Oh well, I guess I'll be the test subject as the car is going back today for them to rebuff and to fix the bmw apps issue. I've asked the service manager to check the engine mapping to make sure its inline with the power kit. Whether they actually check or humour me and say they did, is a totally different story.

How can you know??? And since you have to go easy on the beast at first...no way you can floor it to see the difference. And I'll be coming from an N52 anyways so for me 300 or 330 or 300/370 of torque will all feel the same to me.

Last I heard was Oct 20th. I think there are only 2 Ruby's coming in. They have been pretty helpful, don't want to keep calling everyday looking for an update.
ETA for all the Ruby Blacks sold at my dealership are supposed to be here on the 16th of October. They were off the boat on August 10th and on the rail car by October 1st

1 still available and it's manual which is coming end of october

I don't mind without the badge, the car attracts enough attention already

I came in and saw the two Jerez's a few weeks ago, they looked pretty nice. I was tempted to just grab one of them lol....but I think I will be a happier with the Ruby...hope I am not wrong.

The 16th would be great, better than the 20th!

Anyways, the service people said it must have been a mix up at the port where the car got the software. I told them to check the engine software to make sure its got the power kit software too. The car is fast after 60km/h+ but it doesn't feel much faster than a standard n55 335i to me. But then not like I'm driving like a maniac and gunning it from the get go.....

These were my rates. Here's a question someone could answer. Isn't it supposed to be a stage 2 kit. There should be extra hardware under the hood.... Wouldn't that confirm something???

Drove my baby back home today. 3 hours. Wow. Love the power and exhaust. Sweet ride. Wife took it for a drive and it was love at the first start of the engine!

Just gotta figure out the apps, badge and now apparently the performance kit!

Mine just says performance kit not performance kit 2 on the sticker. I assume same thing?

The car is staying with them over night cause I need them to buff the car again and they prob need to update the software. I can't drop it off in the morning cause I have work so I dropped it off at night and they are going to look at it tomorrow.

Okay cool. Let me know what they find!

Why are they rebuffing it? Unless they messed up, better to bring it home, clay it, polish and wax it yourself.

Sounds like we are all effected by the lack of BMW Apps, Badge and possibly stage 2 programming.

Minor issues but issues indeed.

I have a PDF from BMW (Sales Guy sent it to me regarding BMW Apps)

Subject: BMW Apps Package (ZOX)
Overview
In keeping with BMW’s commitment to technological advancement, we are proud to announce the upcoming
availability of “BMW Apps Package” effective as of April production (ZOX). As the next advancement in BMW’s
ConnectedDrive strategy, BMW Apps provides the ability to control specific Apps on the iPhone over the iDrive.
Each time a new function is released, owners will be able to update and customize the infotainment capabilities of
their vehicle simply by updating their BMW Connected App or by downloading a new BMW Certified 3rd Party App.
Price
BMW Apps Package will be available as a $300 option. This package includes the Smartphone Integration (option
6NF). This option also includes Apps (option6NR). For full media functionality the customer will also need to
purchase a Snap-in Adapter as an accessory parts purchase.
Availability
All 04/11 production MY11 and MY12 models in combination with the Navigation System (Option 609)
(i.e. 128i Coupé, 323i Sedan and 328i xDrive Sedan Classic Edition Package cannot be equipped with
BMW Apps Package)
Connection
To access simply connect the iPhone to the vehicle’s USB port in the center console or the Media/BMW Apps
Snap-in Adapter. See the Technical Requirements section below for functionality per connection method.
Features
BMW Apps Package is split into three new features - Apps, PlugIn and Video Playback.
Apps – lets the customer use the BMW Connected App as well as
future BMW certified 3rd Party Apps.
BMW Connected App – is an app developed by BMW that
contains multiple functions. It is currently available to be
downloaded for free via Apple’s App Store. The following
features will be included at launch:
o Web Radio – listen to 1,000’s of internet radio stations from all over the world. Search for stations by
genre, country or popularity to make it easy to find your desired content. This feature can also be
used on the customer’s iPhone when not in the vehicle.
o Facebook and Twitter – stay connected and receive the
latest status updates from your social network. Text-to-
Speech functionality allows incoming messages to be read
over the vehicles audio system. This feature also allows
you to send pre-defined text messages relating to current
vehicle information while traveling. The amount of text
and functionality is limited to ensure safety and avoid
driver distraction.
BMW Certified 3rd Party App – is an iPhone app that is developed by another company but has been
certified for use in your BMW. Announcements are forthcoming on which 3rd Party Apps will be available.
For administrative convenience, this document may include references, processes or information for authorized BMW car retailers, authorized BMW SAV retailers and/or authorized BMW
Individual retailers. All references, processes or information related to BMW SAVs and/or BMW X5s are intended ONLY for authorized BMW SAV retailers. All references, processes or
information related to the BMW Individual Collection are intended ONLY for authorized BMW Individual retailers.


2011 Product Planning Bulletin
PlugIn – changes the iDrive screen to the same look and feel as the iPod function on an iPhone. It allows you to take advantage of all the iPod features (Genius, album art, compiling playlists, etc) that are not available via the basic USB connection. With future iPhone software updates, new features will also be available in the car. An additional benefit comes in the way of increased interface speed.
Video Playback – enables video playback from the iPhone via the iDrive display. This function only works when the vehicle is stationary.
Ordering Requirements
The following features must be ordered to add package ZOX: 609 – Navigation with iDrive 639 – BMW Assist 6FL – iPod and USB adapter Note: For the X3, option 6NL (BMW Assist with enhanced Bluetooth and USB) is ordered instead of 639 (BMW Assist) and 6FL (iPod and USB adapter)
The following features are included with package ZOX: 6NR – Apps 6NF – Smartphone Integration
Technical Requirements iPhone (3G, 3GS or 4) BMW Connected App; available free of charge at Apple’s App Store Connector:
o Apple White Cable (or)
o Media/BMW Apps Snap-in Adaptor – Accessory Parts Purchase (required for PlugIn and Video Playback functions).
Connection Supported Features Apps PlugIn Video Playback


Most Importantly::::

USB Apple Cable will work with BMW APPS, not VIDEO CABLE and PLUGIN

Media Dock will work with BMW APPS, VIDEO CABLE and PLUGIN.

I got the PDF, if you need it PM and I can email it to you.

Thanks,

I believe if it says "Performance Kit" under the hood, that means that it at least has the re-flashed software (stage 1). Stage 2 has the exact same software, just additional hardware.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=587465

Version 1 Power Kit: Performance-Optimized Engine Software. This version of the Power Kit was first introduced on the 335i BMW Performance Edition model (announced in July, 2011). Available for all Model Year 135i and 335i vehicles. Also available for X6 vehicles produced up to 04/2010.

Version 2 Power Kit: Same engine performance software as Version 1, plus an Auxiliary Water Cooler and an Enhanced Radiator Fan to reduce the higher thermal stresses on the engine during extreme driving.

I might be wrong, but I believe the engine software, along with the proper idrive software are done at port (i'm guessing halifax?). So if they got the idrive wrong, the odds are high that they got the engine flash wrong too.
