my issue fixed!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Okey i want to start off by saying the car feels and drives great, the dealer had to reprogram the car from zero, they added a new code/software for the steering and some other codes as well i dont know what that was because i was so excited to get my car back but thats what my dealer told me and now it turns and feels great and my car feels stronger all the way the shifts are now smoother. They did notice the brakes didnt or was not installed correctly and they coded the brakes to and it really feels and are stiffer now!

im happy now with my car its time to modd the shit out of it!!

happy new year to all

First the earth cooled.*And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil.

my issue was the steering it leaned to the right and wobbled and they fixed it with a new code it made the ride stiffer and noticeably better

they fixed the gear changes from hars/hard upshifts to smooth, not completely but much, much better compared to before, they said it had something to to with the dme not reading to car well something like that by reseting the car to defaults then reprogram/recode the whole car because it was something wrong with the readings from dme, this is what they said to me i dont really know maybe a bug :S

they reinstalled my brakes because they were not installed correctly and would vibrate at high speed braking and not brake properly until you really hit the brake pedal really hard, and they coded them as well because they were not even coded they said, now they feel stiffer and brakes much better

Hmm, that's interesting. My steering wobbles a little at certain speeds (between 40-60 mph I think). Can you tell me the exact software update code for this? I thought it was more a mechanical issue than a software issue. I plan to take the car to the dealer in a couple of weeks to get this checked out and perhaps I could refer a software code number or something to them. Would it be possible for you to get that from your dealer?

Would be interesting/helpful to see the service adviser comments from the paperwork.

i didnt have stock on i got my car with m perfromance installad at delivery of the car, when i gotit, so i really dont know the difference but i test drove a car at bmw and they feel the same almost maybe a little bit better when they get hot. But i would just drill the stok brakes and make them look like m performance brakes and buy new rotors and brakes for rear.

just buy better brake pads as the price off m performance brakes is not worth it, go with aftermarket with bigger rotors or more pistons

I don't have VSS. Not sure how to acquire a code. Was hoping your dealer might tell you what it is.
