DCT Lag Software Update - 03/2013

Some feedback on the latest software update from BM.

I had the software fix for the DCT 2nd gear lag updated on my 2008 M3 Friday. The technician told me my car had last been updated in September 2009. The car now feels completely different, even in "S" mode where I didnt really notice any issues with gear changing previous, but now the gear changes are completely different, perfect, sooo smooth!! The dealer was really helpful and even managed to complete the roadtest to confirm my reports and then do the software update on the same day between 8am and 2pm, which I was very surprised at with it being a BMW warranty claim.

All in all very happy with the fix. If anyone else notices the 2nd gear lag, or even slightly less than perfect gear changes in "S" mode, I can highly recommend the software fix that was released in March 2013!
