2013 Dealer Reprogramming

So I just got my car back from the dealership from reprogramming the ASS.

Now, I noticed that they did not just reprogram the ASS, this was an update of all the programming.

A few things I noticed:

1) ASS now is set to remember last, unless you hit EcoPro. (Best update EVER!)
2) Door handle puddle lights now light up when in reverse
3) The mirror lights blink a few times when opening up the trunk with the CA
4) I haven't tested it yet, but I heard other people noticed that the rear windows one touch up works now
5) I noticed that I no longer have the 3 blink turn signal, instead I now have to hold it down (there may be something that got reset but I have got to find it, I noticed some other things got reset too, like my CA driver side unlock all)

Has anyone else got the update? Also, has anyone noticed any other small changes they made with the update? I was not given any sort of summary of changes.

That's the coolest thing. BMW is giving this one out for free since so many people had complained! Only bad thing is it take a whole day (4 hours minimum they say).

With the exception of last driver remembered, my 2013 F30 came off the boat with all of the above. Would be good to have BMW ship the cars programmed "correctly" or at least make all this iDrive options and stop the need to spend the day at the dealership.

If you give the indicator stalk a brief touch rather than a full push, that will activate your indicators to flash three times only. Handy for changing lanes.

Great thanks! I was looking for it since my car came off the boat with the 3 blink turn and after reprogramming, I guess the default is with it off.

obviously your salesperson didn't do a good job of showing you the features of the car.

I never sit for a demo. I can learn faster and more by reading the manual <*gasp*> and trying things.
