I don't know that the indy shop actually cleared the codes. The BMW SA said they may go off and on on their own. I went back to Bavarian and they said to wait until the light comes back. If it comes back. I'm in no hurry to spend money if noting needs fixing. I made an appointment to update the iDrive software in a couple of weeks.
So question about that. They said the cost is an hour labor. Their rate is apparently $105 an hour. Isn't it the same at the dealer? I read that indy shops charge about $50/h or so.
