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.

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