For some reason I thought iDrive settings survive the upgrade. Would have been helpful if they warned me that settings would be lost - I definitely would have backed everything up. Total PIA.

Software Update Massacre

Just brought my '17 340xi in for warranty service and as part of it, they did a software update. Unfortunately, this resulted in a complete loss of all settings that I've had in place for 2 years....

It won't show up on the VIN as it's a port installed option when ordering from the factory.

The 'M Performance' stickers on the rocker panel were part of the MPPK on my '14 335i and MPPSK on my 340i. That said, the stickers can be purchased separately, so confirm that it has had the tune...

On initial startup, all BMWs rev a little higher and the exhaust flaps are open. This is to heat up the catalytic converters. After 20secs or so the exhaust flaps close and revs come down.

Not at all. It's nothing like the new Mustangs that have a 'quiet' mode to avoid annoying your neighbors. In comfort mode, there's only a slight change in sound at idle and under power. In sport...

This isn't limited to cars either. I have COmcast Xfinity remotes that are coated with the soft-touch material and after 6-8 months it starts to breakdown and become sticky.

I've gotten a couple of warnings in my '17 340xi (8,500 miles) when it is very cold out (under 20 degrees). It's not due for routine service until June, so will just keep an eye on it.

Glad to hear this worked out for the customer. One clarification, the OP is from Toronto and I believe the mileage stated is expressed in KMs. If that's the case, the car had 75k miles (120,000 KM)...

Teflon tape solves this permanently. Lubricants, etc. will dissipate eventually and the problem will return.

I'm not sure of your particular details, but you should be able to cancel the order. The deal isn't done until you sign the final BMWFS paperwork.
