Software Updates

I am new to the form and drive a 2011 335i xdrive the car will be under warrantee for one more year. After that I do my own oil changes and was wondering about software updates. When should I check for them and when do they stop coming?

As often as you like and whenever BMW chooses to stop developing them, respectively.

When available, you can download updates to the Bluetooth drivers from the BMW web site and install them yourself. New versions appear every so often, when problems interfacing newer phones/devices to the car are identified and corrected. Check whenever the mood strikes you, by entering your VIN on the site. If a driver update turns out do more harm than good for you, you can revert to the previous version in a matter of seconds.

As for the rest of the iDrive operating system, and other embedded systems throughout the car: If it it ain't broke, don't fix it. The arguments in favor of keeping a home computer updated to the latest & greatest versions at all times do not apply here.

Oh, and one more thing: Welcome to the 'Fest!
