Right there in the service bulletin it says:

Last User Mode

How could it be more clear?
So, you are actually considering letting someone in that service department re-code your car? Have you seen what coding an F30 is like? If not, check out the discussions on this topic. You could do it yourself, of course.

But why let a service department that cannot read the SIB mess with not just the coding -- but actually adding this feature to the digital vehicle order of your car, which the SIB also mentions. IOW, if they can't make out the English in the SIB, there's no telling what they will do when it comes time to do the relatively delicate work of recoding your car for ASS LUM.
