Try it, see what happens. I'd be nice for 2012 owners to know that they can get a 2012 map for $10.

I do not think so... 2012 maps started being factory-loaded around January just because there were no 2012 maps released until then. My M3 was also 09/11 and it came with 2011i Maps. The 2011ii update does not require FSC, but the 2012 did.

So either it was a fluke or what actually was loaded was the 2011ii.
