New software update for M340i?

I took my car to the dealership today, and the advisor told me a new software update just came out. I'm not referring to the one from May - that was installed on my car before I took delivery.

Anybody know what this update brings?

Aren't these supposed to be over the air updates now? Or do we still need to take car into the dealer?

My thoughts exactly. Well I will be taking in my brand new M340i to service for faulty camera, blown speaker and paint correction.

Does anyone know how involved the process is to have your system updated at the dealer? Is it something that they can do pretty quickly while you wait or do you have to leave it there?

It varies. Could be as short as 40 minutes or as long as 1+ days. I believe the update is downloaded from Germany and it's not a download/saved/locally.

I'm now on 03/2019.60 as of last week, updated by the dealer on delivery. I was told there is a major Hotfix update being pushed out in July through the dealers as OTA isn't available in Australia yet.

So far the only difference I've noticed is;
It has added the "Caring Car" option and "Regulated Climate Control" for the seats but the latter doesn't work though

How long it takes depends on how many stalls the dealer has for software updates and if they are already being used.

I tried to buy an M340i today. The dealer would not let me complete the deal and take the car home because of this software update. I have to go back tomorrow and finish the deal after the perform the required service. It sounds like perhaps this is a bit more than just a simple OTA update.

Interesting news. I've scheduled pickup of my MY20 M340 today, and nothing was communicated regarding any delivery stop. I'll mention this to see if perhaps my vehicle was updated while it was being prepared for delivery, or if they are aware of any other update.

Awesome news! Mine is supposed to be in this week as well. Let me know if you see a black on black 340 with 792 wheels there. Good news is the money factor went down to 0.00145 today.

Did he mention if it was for "12 86 19RC PROGRAMMING CONTROL UNITS DME"?
My 2018 M240xi ragtop was called in for it last week. Apparently a lot of Bimmers were being called in for that. Maybe it applies to new models as well. Program downloads are from Deutschland...

Just picked mine up! Vehicles that are not open inventory (so may be at the dealer, but are not available for sale) aren't visibly available to the public. I didn't see yours there.

Nothing was mentioned of software issues, and I didn't notice any problems, but I also haven't truly dug into the details or put it through it's paces yet.

That is interesting. I get that buzzing but when a certain tone plays. Now I'm starting to think its the artificial sounds pumped through the speakers.

But that is the exact sound I get.

That's exactly what mine does when in sport or sport plus and accelerating reasonably hard.
