I just had this same programing update done for my brake wear. And, it erased all the music I uploaded to my car. Such a pain!

Correction: The uploaded music is still there, but all of my...

Same with me, and it doesn't bother me that the other speakers don't light up. The sound quality just can't be beat, whether or not the speakers light up.

I also was wondering why my wipers move slightly when shutting off the engine. The explanation about preventing them from sticking to the windshield makes a lot of sense. These guys at BMW are good.

I do not have it. The car is a manual, and has plenty of power and responsiveness. I did add the sport exhaust system, which adds to the whole sports car experience. If you can swing a new Cayman...

In my experience, if you have a slight rattle that doesn't bother you too much, you are better off living with it. I've found that whenever the dealer takes the car apart to fix a rattle, new ones...

I'm sure the premium sounds great, but the B&O system is just about the best sound I've ever heard in a car.

Don't you have the track wheel on the steering wheel? If you press it, you'll get the song that's currently playing, and you can either skip to the next song, or go back to the prior.

It's normal for the car to downshift as you slow down, but you should not feel a jerk. It should be a smooth stop. I would take it to the dealer and ask them to address it.
