That means if you do a lot of driving in the Eco Pro mode, this update will have absolutely no effect.

Apparently, BMW's logic is if you want to use the driving mode that will save you the most gas, your car will default to a system that can occasionally cause your car to stall in traffic. Of course, that could have been corrected if this update included the Eco Pro mode. But it didn't, so I guess I'll just have to continue pushing that button every time the car enters the Eco Pro mode. That's an aggravation, but not a major one.

The update I'm really hoping for is one where the ASS system will work smoothly without the possibility of stalling. Whether we ever will see it is doubtful at best.
