i had to leave the car all day. I dropped it off on a thursday night and picked it up friday night. they gave me an f30 xdrive loaner. the software does take a while to update since its the entire car, every module i guess.

Software update did not work

My 335 just spent day at dealer. Software was updated but the car still does not recognize the USB.

Any ideas? I can confirm the USB port DOES work.

Anyone willing to send me their USB? I will pay shipping both ways and throw in some other things too.

It seems that there aren't many improvements from the 2011 map version, correct?

For me it contained at least one major update. It includes a new on/off ramp to a major freeway that was put in a couple years ago.

Yup. The FSC code is BMW's attempt to keep folks from doing exactly what we are. They want us to buy the updates from them. We are fortunate that seiras5 is able to provide them at a much reduced price than what BMW does.

did you plug it into the glovebox? Are you sure they actually updated the software on the car? Easiest way to tell is that you can turn on and off the gray box on the map screen for phone signal strength by pressing down on the idrive knob.

Also, make sure you have the file and folder not contained in another folder on the drive and it is FAT32 formatted.

yeah I got quoted 50euros as well.

Is it okay to ask to pay after the upgrade is successful? I just want to make sure it works.

Pretty much everyone here has used him for their FSC code and there have been no failures. I don't think he would agree to giving you the coe for free. Look at it from his perspective, it would be like sending someone a product before they pay for it. He would have to recourse if you stiffed him.
