What production month for 2011 to look for

I did search this but did not find what I was looking for. What production month for a 2011 F10 535i is best to consider. Is the so called tip in resolved in 2011 later production or just the 2012+. What are some of the 2011 bugs. Tks

Anything after Feb 2011.

Combox added 9/2010.

More software added January 2011 (forget what exactly).

Also, common bugs - pull to the right, ARS grinding.

Tip in resolved in 2012's.

So a 2/11 or later date will fix the tip in, ARS Grinding and pull to the right or do you need a 2012 model. Tks

I believe there were three phases for 2011 F10 in the US.


Here's what I remember:
4/10-8/10
9/10-2/11 New combox, new tpms
3/11-7/11 New enhanced display in combo with HUD

Not sure what issues, if any, were fixed during the year. Some cars had problems, while others didn't.
