320d New Software update

BMW updated my software without asking me they will do it. (i amkinda cool with it)

Noticed the following changes
- Wheel spin lessened on 50%+throttle from idle.. on COMFORT MODE more deadspace when tapping the throttle.
- Car drives alot more agressive under sports mode. New Engine map under sports mode now consumes a hell of a lot more Fuel (12l/100) which i dont like
- Lesser noise from Direct Rail Injection at low or idle (328i owners might like to check this out to reduce ticking noise from rails as well)

Cheers

12L/100? I think you better add leaking fuel hose to your list of complaints.

Lol +1

But OP there must be something wrong if you're a diesel and copping 12litres. City driving here 328 I'm under 11 I drive in sports mode always

Will chek with the dealer bout this update but doesn't seem to be similar to the other update everyone has been talking about
