Anyone know what the software upgrade costs? I am thinking of getting this done at the same time as my 1200 mile service but don't want to get ripped off.

They should do it free of charge next time you bring it in for servicing.

Yes, I was told that it was free of charge. I asked them to check which version my car had before taking delivery and they said V19 - if it wasnt then they said it would have taken over 7 hours to download it :eek:

I had mine done at Sytner in London and it was free. I had to leave it overnight, though as it was a long job... :sad3:

Pardon my ignorance, but what does the upgrade do?
Well there is no official changelog available (none as far as I know) but the software is for the engine management, SMG managment, difirential, suspension and so on. It controls all the low level parts.
