Post Just had a software update - noted didfferences

A couple of things I noted that were different after the update

Instead of displaying 'Logic 7' in the Audio settings menu it says 'Surround Sound Settings'

When I push the stop button (to shut down the engine) a message is displayed in the bottom of the i-drive screen 'Enabled in Radio Mode' (or something like that)

I don't think anything elses seems different - anyone else had an update lately and noticed changes?

After my updates I have noticed,

- Harder stopping than before,
- Lower MPG reading from the OBC

Everything else seems great as before.

You would have to ask the dealer to be sure.

I didn't notive anything like that - stopping has never been an issue before or after the upgrade

Trust me, I noticed this after picking up the car and applied the breaks a couple of times. It seems to be holding a bit longer after releasing the brake pedals.
