They will most likely only update your software for free at the stealership if you have an ECU problem or they need to do some coding for parts that were replaced under warranty. Even then it isn't likely they will do this. They quoted me like $280 I believe for the update.

Go see Miguel, he'll hook you up.

When I answered his question with a "yes", he gave a chuckle. Any I missing something here? Has anyone ever got the software updated at the dealership that was not under a warranty issue?

I plan to, thanks. Based on the thread, someone said that the dealership may update the software to the latest one for us without cost. Guess that was incorrect.

More interested to know why the tech would say that he has never heard of 240E and that the latest BMW software update is 2.49? Does anyone know if there is a difference or is it just the same?

Yeah, you will be surprised if you told the tech "can you code for mirrors folding by keyb" and he replied:" it is not possible on North America version..."
