DIY Software Update? Service Department is Clueless!

Car is in for some service right now. I figured while it was in I would request that they update the software.

Guy who I am dealing with in service seems to have NO idea that BMW's can even have their software updated. Is there something I am missing?

Should I be asking for something more particular? Is it possible to do this myself?

They could be pretending they didn't know because the software update takes a freakin whole day.

This guy sounds legitimately clueless.

What could possibly take a whole day to reprogram the software?

It actually can take a whole day to reprogram the car. Basically they reflash every computer in the car.

Do a search for CIP 19. There's tons of good information about it here.
