hi everybody,

my first post and BMW

I just took my car in last week and asked for the to do this. They had no problem with it. Had my car all day but when I had came back to pick it up the SA told me I lucked out. I was a little confused at first I asked how so?

Apparently as of August 1st 2013 BMW will no longer allow the dealers to reprogram this off by default. EPA got after BMW I was told.

I would be curious if others heard this or he is just blowing smoke up my rear lol

anyhow, loving my 328I

Unless they can show some official document from BMW, it may be just one of their many "rules" for not doing ASS recoding

I believe this for certain. They registered the cars with the feature enabled. Then they issued a bulletin authorizing dealers to disable it. They probably shouldn't have issued a formal bulletin.

Pretty much all manufacturers have alternative calibrations available to address customer driveability complaints, but they don't go out of their way to spread the word about it.

Wait really? So 2014s have this as a standard configuration? That's good then! I'm expecting my 2014 328i in about 3 weeks... if that's the case, then I won't have to try to "convince" the dealer to reprogram it, since it seemed like such a hassle in my previous two attempts to talk to them about it. I am surprised that the dealer doesn't know anything about this change for the 2014 models though. Can anyone else with a 2014 also confirm this change?

I talked to a CA today who said they've quietly started doing it at the PDCs in the US, but they can't do it in the factory because some countries require it to default on for the designated eco certification that bmw wants/needs. They should know at the factory, of course, what country a particular build is destined for but I imagine things get swapped around a lot during production.

He also said there have been some 2014s that have shown up w/ ASS still set to 'default on', but it's been uncommon so far.

*shrug*

It still turns on in Eco Pro mode of course and doesn't automatically turn off if you switch to a different mode.

My dealer told me this before even delivering the car so I was like....sure! But I tried ti and ti remembers last setting adn I keep it off. I was told part of key memory for the car now.
