Got the Software Update.. kind of!

Well, I finally got the software updated on my car. I have been getting the high battery drain warning since I picked it up in august so I took it in yesterday to get it updated. Picked it up today and on my drive home I realized:
1) No Bluetooth, I couldn't even activate it under communication settings. (Maybe I am doing something wrong)
2) No Voice Commands. I push the button, hear the beep but it never hears me. It's like the microphone was turned off.
3) The steering is soo much looser now. Now I have to turn the steering wheel 1/2 a turn for what I needed 1/4 of a turn before.
4) I drive froze on the drive home.
5) Got home, called BMW assist, couldn't control the volume, it was LOUD. He didn't have my location or anything.. just my voice. (Idrive screen was in the main menu, shouldn't it have been showing my location, status of call etc?)
6) Xenons don't swivel anymore.
7) All data was erased (understandeably so) but my address book under Nav had two entry for each of my saved locations. (Not a biggie, but now I have to delete one of each).


What did they do to my poor car? All I wanted was the battery drain warning gone!
Sigh.. Called the dealership, taking it back in tomorrow morning.
