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


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.
