Yes. The exact same thing happened to me the other day when I was driving home from work. Was ok the next day. I'll ask them to check it out when I bring it in for the next service.

Just experiment around. The car is not gonna blow up :) These cars are smart enough to adjust to variations in fuels.

From the way you are describing it (dull), you might want to do a throttle body adaptation reset (google search). It might help.

Yep, it's the software. It's unfortunate that this really kills the fun in driving. I'm surprised that they wouldn't update the software for you. Not saying that it will fix the problem completely,...
