I guess I'll pick it up and see how it goes. Any issues and I'll be right in there.
You'll be fine. Either 31.1 was installed at the time of manufacture (if it was after the Sep 10th date), or it was installed at the VPC .... or failing all of that, it would have being installed at the dealer prior to delivery to the customer (you).

BTW, the comment from the "senior tech" is idiotic. What dealer is this? BMW Seattle? They are normally very good.

Got the update installed today, there is definately an improvement. The shifts are almost seamless in the lower S Modes with half throttle. In S5, it shift but not as dramatic when flooring it but still very fun. Also the initial lag or hesitation is gone when you first step on the pedal. Good work BMW.
