My posts just relayed the information I received directly from Dinan. Dinan was not referring to any car in particular and certaintly not your car.

If this issue is only coming up on "XI" cars, then with an "I" car I may not need to wait to purchase the software. No need for you to be concerned or seek to call any particular company representative on the carpet.

I look forward to finding out what the relevant issues are in this matter.
I got my warning while I was with Stage 3 and not Stage 2, but according to my SA it was BMW's fault, not Dinan's. I'm also willing to bet I've pushed my a lot car harder than most and I've only had one light in the 24kmi since my first Dinan install. That's about the same engine light frequency as I had with my previous Benz and Audi before that. Now if I could correlate my repeated camera issues with Dinan, I'd be all over their case.
