New BMW Software Upgrade?

So I took my car in for Service today, my Service Manager told me that there is a "new software" upgrade for the M3... Just wondering if anyone know or heard about this, and know what it is?

Mine is a April/May 2010 Production "2011 ZCP"

DCT software? It's been out for a few months.

Is it to upgrade to 6NR - Entertainment or Tranny. Mine is a 2011 but have not taken it in for service yet.

It is a DCT software update. Had mine done last month. I also had a April 2010 build--2011 ZCP. I think someone mentioned this software has been out since September?

My dealer refused to do a software update. My SA said there had to be a documented problem that they could reproduce before any software update. Mine is a 09 march build with 6MT.

I did the upgrade 1 month ago on my 2011 december made and I dont physically see the difference. I wanted the 6NR (app) upgrade but I have heard now that retrofit upgrade is coming in June. I have the latest Idrive but not the BMW app feature.

Does anyone know if the dealer can deny me the software upgrade if it's for DCT? I heard some people can get a downshift blip in S3 after the upgrade, my car doesn't do that.

I think it might be the DCT Upgrade.... I was told by my SA that i will not notice a difference lol. Maybe its because of that first/second gear jerk in the DCT???

I doubt its the 6NR upgrade, since if it was, i think he would have told me.
