Anyone else have any ideas? Or had the same thing done recently?
Well, I had to take my car in for a rear red reflector and very, very minor wheel alignment. Very irritating to have to hold the steering wheel around 1 or 2 degrees clockwise off centre.

So on Monday I took it to Stillwell for warranty and yes, they told me about some software re-programming, which could take hours, even 2 days. So I only had a loan car from Stillwell for the day and we re arranged another day and I will have a loan car for 2 days. I have ordered an M5. If they can't supply me, then an M3 or M6. OK, so ore likely be a 116. See what I care!!!! (Actually , I do)

My SA was also vague, only reading off the work/job sheet he was given. You know more about it than I did.

Now I know a little more. And I thought the upgrade was to boost power & torque by at LEAST 50% - all for FREEEEE!!!!
