Just picked up the car..

got the software update.. car feels good.. seems like the dip is gone or less noticeable at 4k...and idle feels solid.

oil serviced..

vanos rattle.. they claim it's normal... my friggin ass it's normal.. if it's normal, why was it replaced the first time? They said there's a service bulletin saying it's normal.

I have another appointment on Nov 10th with them for a field engineer to look at it.. if he says it's normal.. then I'm gonna say, "okay.. then if it's normal.. i can pick any m54 equipped bmw on this lot and it'll make the same sound, right?"
If you don't like my driving, get off the sidewalk.
