Idrive Advice?

I have spent my first whole day with my car and it couldnt be better.
I was playing around with my idrive and there were no problems at all. It doesnt seem to be slow or anything. But it is the original version from pre-sept build. I would like the update anyways just for convenience (Dont know if clicking on accept when starting bimmer will become second nature lol), and the newer color scheme would be nice.

Anyone have any suggestions of excuses they used to get their dealer to update their idrive at no cost? I guess I could tell my dealer it freezes? Is it possible?

do MP3 CD's work? if not, thats a basis you can use for an update. assuming you're still within warranty, of course.

Just over 50k miles so out of original factory warranty, but under CPO warranty. Lets say I cant play mp3 cd's, still covered?

Technically, CPO doesn't cover Navi/iDrive but some dealerships may still be able to get it approved. It's worth a shot. However, note that an updated Progman doesn't always mean it is "better". And to fix the MP3 issue, you may need a new CCC and that may not be covered under CPO warranty.

I had my CPO 06 330i updated for free because of the MP3 issue and the CD would continue after paused/muted. I would leave the car with alarm on and then come back after 5 mins btw. If your car does not play MP3 CD's it is under warranty to be updated at no charge at a dealer. I recommend getting it done at the dealer where you purchased it from. I had some issues with other dealers. My dealer updated my Idrive with version 32.1. The version I had was factory 06 version.
