What kind of software upgrade do i need? The bmw engineers told me that the car wont detect the new controller no matter what. Is that true? Please help.
Yeah don't think that will work ever.. you need a newer iDrive system from early 2008 or newer, and then even it has to have updated 2009 era software for it all to work. I have a March 2008 build M3 with DCT and my controller swap worked perfectly, but I had already had my car updated due to some DCT glitches.
