Updating idrive ????

Hi all. I have been trying to update my idrive for no particular reason.

I have a 12 plate 320d f30 and It says the version I have is ME 008.008.000.

The website says the latest version is UPD03007 version ME 8.5.5

Is that supposed to be older or newer because when I plug the stick under the armrest it says software is already upto date.

This is an old post, but I'm running into this now, so incase anyone else is too.

I'm on 008.011.000 now and bmw.com/update says I can update to ME-8.5.5, TE-8.5.5 which should be in UPD03007.bin, but when I tried that, my car said my current version is newer and there is no need to update.

I checked the content of UPD03007.bin and there is an XML file that says this
<mainVersion>008</mainVersion>
<subVersion>005</subVersion>
<patchVersion>005</patchVersion>

So looks like UPD03007.bin is actually 008.005.005. Don't know what the solution is here, but at least we know why the car is saying there is no need for the update.

Does anyone know how to contact bmw tech support?
