I agree that the drive by wire throttle application in the X3 was designed by the East German engineering team. My wife's 6yr old Acura has drive by wire and the throttle response is perfect.
That is exactly what i said. Two did not and one did. That is one third by my math. I drove them all within the same three weeks at a time that this was not even a discussion. It was the very first month the new F25 was out. So it was not an issue of one not having an update and the others did. There was no update at that time.

It is not the problems that make me so short tempered with BMWNA, but their constant denials and trying to shift the blame to the driver. They haven't even changed the textbook responses from 5 years ago.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
