Hidden Info Menu?

I was trying to reset my oil service today and i was able to access some other information about the car that i never seen before, anyone know what else info mean? i took 2 pictures but there was some other info screen also but it was in German.

Is this my current software on the car?


I'm guessing this was the date my car was finish production?

Put "software sticky" in a search and it'll be on the first page of results. Says something about unofficial software legacy or something or other.

If you go into a dealer they can give you a 3 page print off from your key which will tell you:

Key data - everything about your car: Vin, manufacture date, reg date, mileage, av kms per week etc.
Service data: mileage to next service, mileage to brakes, air filter, micro filter etc.
Service contract: Warranty details
Dynamic vehicle data: Fuel temps volts
Software integration: Integration Plant (mine E89X-08-09-520), Integration level (mine E89X-10-03-504), if new Integration level available (mine yes)
Navigation data: Current map.

I get a print out most visits.

I couldn't get this to work. As soon as I let go of the push pin the warning sign goes away and re-pushing doesn't do anything.

An actual "secret menu" doesn't exist on the E90 M3, right? (perhaps other than this pictured above). On my E39 M5, there is a 21 function secret menu, some functions have two sub-menus, that you unlock by putting in the sum of the last five characters of your VIN. It includes stuff like oil temperature, coolant temp, fuel flow rate L/hr (useful for seeing how well the car is performing at WOT and near redline), fuel level right tank, left tank, total, battery voltage, etc.

Speaking of secret menus, I'd like to know how to see actual speed instead of the inflated speed. Anyone?
