So once I have it on the USB drive, I just have to put it in the center USB port or glovebox USB port? And it will just recognize it and prompt to update?

The Glovebox USB Port, and 20 seconds later iDrive should prompt you to update your Maps.

It's all over every forum and google. Just email SIERAS5 at INBOX.LT, he will ask you for your VIN, and give you a torrent link and key code. Buy a 32gb usb flash for $20 anywhere (cant be external hard drive), plug it into glove box and start ignition. . Just google his email and you will find more details.

Since I did a PCD, they left the FSC code paper in my manuals packet. However, I've entered the code about four times now, and each time it says it's an incorrect code. I've verified that the VIN listed on the paper is the same as the VIN of my car. Anyone experience a bad FSC code? Just to make sure I have the right paper, it says something like (I don't have it in front of me) Response code (Freishincoden <- not the actual word, just something very German).

That code is probably for your current map year. You need a new one for 2013 Maps, and every time you update to a new version.

It seems the answer to the question of the OP is......

Yes it is worth doing!

Why not put a complete DIY on the DIY section of the bimmerfest forum?
All this pm business seems a bit awkward.
Anyone added the coding service turnover yet?
