Question 645 iDrive version check and update?

When I bought my 645, one of the stipulations that I had put on the purchase agreement was updating the iDrive system to the latest release. After a few phone calls and a visit to activate my BMW Assist, they alluded to the fact that they had NOT updated the software and would typically only do so to fix a "problem" or add a feature. He told me to find anything that might be wrong and they would go ahead and correct it, basically telling me its up to me to tell them if there's an update available.

I asked them for the update to support MP3 capabilities, to which they responded and said its not available for the 2004 645. Is this true? From what I have read on the forums its available to even the early 6ers? If it is available is there some specific software revision i need to specifically ask them for since they claim its not an option?

Also, is there a way for me to check the revision of my iDrive system software myself? I had asked them to at least get me the revision that the car is currently at and they gave me the run around about not wanting to do anything to the software unless theres a problem as they might end up causing more problems than they fix by upgrading.

Any advice on how to get them to proceed? Overall, I was very happy with the dealer during the overall experience and I think their service people are extremely nice, just... not so willing to help a buyer of a USED car.
