What exactly is the update?

I've just emailed my local service department as per copy below showing their response..... aaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhh!

My email to them:

"...Can you let me know whether a software update exists yet for the "Delayed Throttle Response" on the MDCT transmission?

I've been led to believe there's a new ISTA/P version (E089-09-03-510 or higher) which goes some way to eliminating throttle response on downshift in a low Drivelogic program..."

Drop me a mail back with any info you've got!


Their reply:

"...That version number doesn't seem to be known by BMW so I would have to say currently there is no up date.


Comprehensive details of update that UK delaers will understand would be fantastic if anyone has them...??
