Mein Auto: BMW 535i
Software update not matching the latest version

Hello,

I am trying to see why my car isn't updating to the version that shows on the BMW software update website. The car is a BMW 535i 2014 w/ M sport package.

I purchased the car with the following software version:
Media: MN-002.017.007
Telephone: TN-002.017.007

Very likely the previous owner of the car didn't perform any kind of OS upgrade. After plugin my VIN and i installing the listed software version from www.bmw.com/update I have the following showing up (Notice that 'Add-on' it's now a new entry):

Add-on: HN-002-255.073
Media: MN-002.018.071
Telephone: TN-002.018.070

I installed UPD05074 and didn't see any error messages after the installation. The Information about this software update shows that i should be having this installed:

Media: MN-002.255.071
Telephone: TN-002.255.070

This is per: http://www.bmw.com/_common/shared/ow...5074_en-gb.pdf

I am just trying to see why my software version doesn't matches the PDF specially for the 'Telephone' and 'Media' version. Not sure what others are running on the same car (F10), perhaps post what you got. I also wonder if i should take it to the dealer so that they can perform a software upgrade themselves (car still under warranty).

Thanks in advance._a__a2_

Mein Auto: 2014 535i M Sport
I tried installing UPD0507.bin...

I downloaded the file, put it on a FAT32 USB drive and tried to install it. I got a failure saying something about the file not being compatible with the vehicle. Any ideas??
