Mein Auto: 2011 x3 28i
Yes, I still have it in my 2011 2.8 xDrive after the software update, but only when I don't come to a complete stop, such as rolling up to a red light and it turns green before I come to a complete stop.

Last week I started to turn down a street but found it closed, I turned the wheel and tried to give it gas to get going back on the original road.... I pressed the gas and nothing happened... for what seemed an eternity... I'm sure it was just a split second. My 1 series would never do this. Never experienced this with Z3's, e39's, e46, or e82 models.

I also find that pushing the gas pedal has a much less direct connection to engine acceleration than my other BMWs. I really hope BMW comes out with a few more updates to correct this problem. This is the first BMW I've owned, out of several, that I am not totally pleased with.
