335 Computer Update ???

Just wondering if anyone has recently encountered the same thing...

I called the 800 # for ED to find out where my vehicle was.. They told me it was leaving customs and waiting for a computer update ??

Just curious if this is just my car... or all 335's... and if anyone knows what the update was for...

Thanks

I'm following you -

From the Integrity to the VPC. And yes, I called the ED office and was told exactly the same thing.

I did 1000 miles in Europe and had no problems. I don't know what to make of an 'update'.

We need to find out what SIBs were issued for Mar 08 cars. How to do that?

(What was your plate #? I had 1953 M.)

Yes we are on the same track.. I put a little over 500 miles on my car... with no problems either...

I tried to call up the ED office to get more information... but the lady I spoke to this time showed no information on this computer update... It is safe to assume they are all getting it.. just not sure what is the reason ???

My CA is off tomorrow.. so I will try her first thing Thursday morning !!

My plate # was M 2907 Z

If your car was built in march 08 it already had the updated DME and computer changes.

I think you are right... but they might be doing them at the VPC at the port...

I think you said yours was updated... but could they have done this at the port in NJ... rather then at the factory in Munich ??

Interesting. My 335i isn't an ED, but got to port in late April and is still at the VPC awaiting this "software update" according to my CA. He said it should be at the dealer tomorrow or Thursday (finally!), and insists the software update is all - no damage.

I already had my ECU box open to see what was in there.

My car has the V81 DME unfortunately. It was probably one of the first cars built with it.
