For those of you with the Dinan Software upgrade...

I recently had my 2nd service done. Oil change, microfilter, and all the normal stuff. They also ran a software update on my car. At first I didn't think anything of it, took it home and drove it for a little while and didn't think anything more of it. Then the other night I was thinking man they updated my software so I wondering if my Dinan software was affected. Next morning went out and drove it hard and I did notice the throttle wasn't as responsive as before, so I emailed my SA to inquire about this. Then today I got an email for me to bring in my car anytime this week to have it loaded again. So guys if you have the Dinan software double check with your SA before and after your service appointment.

Didnt they put a sticker on your fan shroud stating that the vehicle is equipped with Dinan software and to call xxx-xxx-xxxx before doing any factory updates?
Or maybe the tech was a knucklehead and missed it.....
But thanks for the heads up..

I have Dinan software but they didn't place any sticker in my car.
When I went in for alarm flash, they needed to install full software update. So I had to mention to install Dinan software back on.

Can any Dinan software owner confirm the sticker please?

This is going to be very annoying for me considering I got my Dinan tune done through a non bmw dealer

Did they state they did the software update on your work order sheet? Or did you ask them?
