Hey guys, here's some good news: I spoke with my SA and he said my car does not need this update. His explanation was that my car's reprogramming for the EGR valve had occurred after BMW created this update, thus according to BMW, my installed software version includes this latest update.

It's nice to get lucky. I hope my luck on this one holds!

Took mine in for the first oil change and had the software updated as well, they said it would take 5 hours. I had it done. I am on the first tank since but I have been tracking mileage since new, so I will see if it effects it. So far I am -1mpg, but it has been windy. We'll see.

Ive calculated a 2 mpg increase but will see with 2nd tank full, although I did switch to Shell DIESEL, might be the new Diesel and not the flash who knows

Dealership rep called me to inform me of this service campaign. Service manager claims it is not mandatory, but I got a sense that he really would like me to bring it in. My question to those here: Is there any reason I should not have this done to my car??? Is there any reason I should have it done???
Thanks in advance.

If we had any idea what the update actually does, we could make more informed decisions. I'm going for it in the hope it returns the lost MPG from the last update, that BMW would never acknowledge. So if BMW is correcting in issue they would not acknowledge, it stands to reason they would not indicate the update is fixing said unacknowledged issue.

Another Recall -- Reflash & Aftermarket Mods

Seems there is a variety of dealer reactions to third-party mods (e.g., Renntech) while under 4-year maintenance program. Some seem to not care unless it causes them grief; some want to be picky.

I had assumed that if they reflashed the ECU then it would always be necessary to get the Renntech mod redone, which for me too would be a hassle. [NOTE: I haven't done this upgrade yet; still in pondering mode].

So I was just worried about the dealer saying "sorry chump, you're no longer entitled to the free stuff".

Doesn't anyone know what Renntech would charge to reflash if you ship the ECU back to them?

You are in MD so you might find this useful as it relates to making your decision reagarding which tune you want to go with esp considering it will be a hassle to have to remove your ECU and ship it each time the dealer reprograms your ECU.

Anyway, Mach V in Sterling VA is in discussions with Evolve, in which case it is quite possible that in the not to distant future they will be an Evolve dealer. Making a trip out to Sterling is a lot more convenient then the aforementioned.

I was aware of Evolve, which I have read is a pretty big tuner in Europe, but for some reason I put it out of my options list because the Renntech and JBD sounded good, and I didn't research Evolve much. Guess maybe I will now.

Pack a lunch. Miine's scheduled for reflash on 12/27. Was told it could take 2-8 hours!!!!!!!!

BTW, was there to buy extended warranty and could not until reflash complete.

2011 BMW 335d  [3.75]
Took car in yesterday for 1st oil change. S/A says there is a recall on your car for module reprogramming. I asked what it was for. He says it's like going from Vista to 7. I wanted to slap him. I say I decline no thanks. He says ok, but you won't be able to register your car with the DMV if you don't have it done, but that's not a problem now. Meanwhile a S/A across the room is on the phone with a customer telling them BMW is going to take two weeks to give us an answer. Who knows wtf that was about.

Seven hours later I call to see if the car is done. He says yes I left you a message. I look at my iPhone no messages or calls.

Anyone here have a missed call or no voicemail problem with AT&T? I don't or thought I didn't. I'll post up a scan of the documents later.

Had this recall done...day later I had urea crystals all over the back of my car; idiots.

Just took a 900mi road trip...average 34mpg which is 2 less than advertised and around 4 less than I used to average with all interstate driving.

My dealer allowed me to skip the recall.... Basically they did not have the time to do it... They had promised me the car at 2 pm and they had not started the re-program.

Does anyone have the issue with the sound system. I get in the car and its tuned to an FM station that is not programmed.... I also have the display set up as split screen and it is checked for split screen but it only shows the one screen until I uncheck then recheck the split screen box. Just seems a bit buggy. Not to mention that my iPhone 5 maps and nav. is a bit more reliable than my 335d?
