The following software errors were corrected with the release of Progman 23.00.00 (Target data Status E060-06-09-520).

  3. CCC: The CD/DVD/CDC drive continues to spin even after the key is off. No audio output is heard. When the customer returns to the vehicle the audio CD is on a different track. This is most noticeable while listening to audio books on CD.

pls forgive me but is this a fix for all the problems on the cars ??
No. BMW continually improves the software. There are other problems you may experience that these software updates do not fix, and you may not be experiencing any of the problems fixed by thee software updates.

It'd sure be nice to have a fix for the stereo input changing after shutting the car off overnight. No telling what radio station will be on when I start my car in the morning.

Anybody know whether this new version is already in the '07s or do we need the dealers to upgrade the software before delivery?

Andrew, if your car doesn't already have the software, it will probably get loaded at the Prep Center before that car is shipped to your dealer. More likely than not, your car already has it.

Thanks. I am concerned about taking anything for granted with these guys.

Problems?

Fortunately, looks like it only applies to the Euro spec cars with the NAV-TV.

My dealer wouldn't upgrade the software "unless there is a problem." Any suggestions for convincing the dealer to do the upgrade?

I had the same problem. I wanted the update to fix the stereo input problem, which occurs always overnight, but very rarely otherwise. My SA said it could be done but said that a PUMA case would need to be opened, etc. I said I'd live with it until I bring the car in for the 15K service. My guess is that you'll need to show them that there is a real problem before they'll do it. The fact that I didn't buy the car from them may have had some bearing as well, but I do have a good relationship with them and always take care of me.

I had a previous post on this in another thread. Tell them that you listen to books on CD every now and then in the CD changer and that every time you do, the CD seems to be 10-15 minutes ahead after leaving and coming back to the car. This is a well known issue...basically the CD changer keeps running after you shut off the car because the switch it's hooked up to stays on with some of the other electronics in the car for 15 minutes. This is one of the more obvious fixes with Progman 23.x that you can use to get the upgrade. If you don't care about this issue or have a particular problem, and are a few months away from your next service anyway, you might just wait. It can easily take a full day or more depending on how your car takes the software (sometimes they have to load it 2 or 3 times if the computer has a hickup or something during the install).

Haven't we seen reports that 23.x still does not correct the CD run-on issue?

mcvaughan...funny thing is that I think you're right, but with this bulletin it will still get you 23.x if you really want it. In fact, I'm not entirely sure that I didn't have the problem before in the first place with 22.x, and now I do. I had a second issue though...the speedo needle shaking at idle. Actually, it would shake wildly sometimes up to about 25+ mph.
