Software Update

My car has been in for a software update as i was concerned i had a fuel pump issue and also my I drive was slow to react.
Since new the car, when cold to fully warmed up would surge or have power to no power without any alteration of my foot on the accelerator. This would happen only under gentle acceleration and of late when warmed up. So i was concerned as i had been able to manage the problem up until the car started the trait when fully warmed up.
I have completed just over 13000klms.
The dealer was happy to complete the update and the result is fantastic.
The car is smoother all the time including lower speeds in sixth gear.
The I drive update has also fixed the slow reaction time but the new colours will take awhile to get used to especially the nav screens blue.
I am pleased with the result ,took two days as expected and received a near new loaner at no cost.

Hi Recruiter. I am thinking of a software update too.

Do you have photos of the new colour?
Which dealer did it?

Cheers.

BMW only do software updates for free if you have a warranty issue that the update would fix, otherwise, you had better swipe the plastic
