How to get the new Idrive software?

How are you guys doing it? My dealer says they just will not upgrade it, so what are you telling them, so they update it?

Thanks

Tell them that you're iDrive goes too slowly or that your arrow display goes away during navigation. I don't remember what exactly it was but there is a service bulletin stating the exact reason for the upgrade. They must do it, if not I would go to another dealership.

Has anyone heard of their DVD or CD just randomly spinning up? I got in my car the other day to get something. Key was not in my pocket but in the house and I heard the CD spinning up. Happens all the time on the road too. I think it is the DVD. Is this a "reason" to upgrade. My pop-up seems to work so I can't use that excuse.
Thanks
