The only oddity that I have noticed is that I get better gas mileage. Drove 75 miles of hiway at 70 mph. Before update got 29.4 mpg max. After update on this short hiway stretch got 33.0 mpg!!! Weird. Not complaining, and need to verify that the computer is still showing accurate mileage. Has anyone else noticed this increase in gas mileage?
funny that you mention that, i have noticed the same issue...but in th opposite direction...i am averaging lower than before...prior to fix around city i was avg 25-26...after fix 23-24...prior to fix hwy avg was 35, after fix 33

either way, it really isnt that much and i am thrilled to avg this considering I have a 535i..just glad this fix took care of the tip in to be honest!!
