Anyone have any ideas or should I just give it a try? Been reading for hours.
My car is a 10/08 build date and I loaded it via USB stick just fine. Download the file first, put it on USB as instructed, put it in the car in the glove box...if it doesnt bring up the prompt regarding the updated data within a minute or two then you probably need the dvds.

The prompt appeared...uhh...promptly ( ) on mine.

Note: I believe the software version has been updated in my car, but have not confirmed. Not sure if that might make a difference.
