iDrive v.26 Out - Anyone have it yet?

I just read v.26 is out....anyone try it yet? What are the differences between that and v.25.

Since moving to v.25, I swear I lost 50 hp......

According to my SA, V26 = "emission improvements".

No Thanks.

Hmm...maybe v26 will actually solve the problem I have with my K&N intakes that v25 caused. Appears to be a modification in MAF sensor parameters, so maybe undoing those changes will eliminate the issue. Guess I'll find out in a month or two when my car is in for an oil change and we get v26 installed. Still waiting to see if I get the SMG recall notice too. Nothing yet.

My dealer says it smooths out SMG. I really like it how it is. If it slows SMG than no thanks. Although I have had some minor ishs with comfort access.

Clutch has served us well...but it is time to move into the future...SMGIII all the way.

What's the best 'script' to use to convince a reluctant dealer to authorize the upgrade.
