Irritating PDC beeping (in neutral) also still here and I'm on software NBTevo_Q18491I (pre LCI / MY 2017)... Does anybody know why this still is? My dealer said they update every software possible (in trying to cure my bad FM/DAB reception).

I live in Europe, have the NBTevo_P18xxx software on my 2018 M2 LCI DCT and PDC stops immediately when deselecting reverse.

Maybe the software is different in your region?

I was told the PDC beeping is part of the REM module when I decided to go for the ID6 retrofit. The retrofit required swapping out the head unit, which has a different NBTevo version than the original one I had the istep update done on. So, I'm not entirely sure if you can tell which istep version you're on just by relying on the NBTevo number. For instance, my NBTevo number on the ID6 HU is NBTevo_K1xxxxx, I forget the rest of it, but it's definitely an older version.

That said, PDC stops beeping the moment I pop it out of reverse, just as it did before I did the ID6 retrofit.

Wow...this is strange! When I tested it today (before writing my post a couple of hours ago) I tested it when the car was parked in my garage and not moving a lot....the result was exactly the same like before. Now I tested it again after driving the car and yes indeed when I go to neutral after reverse parking the PDC stops beeping without driving to the front.

As posted in another topic

I drove a (not updated) M2 LCI MY18 (20.000km) vs my (updated )pre LCI MY17 (60.000km) on the same day…back to back (both manual).

When driving with my own M2 straight after the M2 LCI I could notice the following things:

Gearbox: My gearbox is more notchy then the one of the LCI I drove. Has nothing to do with the update I know, maybe it's because of the lower mileage or the easier life that the LCI car had? I drive mine hard and also occasionally on track.
PDC: Reverse keeps beeping fixed and works like in every other car.
MDM: A little more slip.
Engine: A little less turbolag (feels like a little less aggressive power delivery).
Steering: I don’t think the steering is now absolute great, but it’s certaintly better. There’s is also more vibration felt from changes in road surfaces, but it still feels a little dead in the middle. I did not notice big differences in steering weight like before update.

After updating to NBTevo_Q18491I do other people feel the M2 power delivery is less aggressive? Or is it just in my head

Hi. Sorry if this is a noob question. If I go through the trouble and update my own istep software with ENET cable, etc, what happens the next time you are at a dealer. Do they have record of what software you were at last time you were there and will question the change? Any ideas?

Thank you. How do you find out the age of software is there a look up table? I will pursue an update then at some point!

Guy I bought it from said he updated to 2019 maps but that's different to istep isn't it?

Ah so it's letter based, further down the alphabet the more up to date?

That indeed seems to be the case. Which version is shown at the iDrive screen?

Well, I was looking forward to having the Q update after reading about its benefits, but now it's on "R" R19144I as Bee Pee pointed out!

Admittedly, I haven't been driving my car a lot lately and I just picked it up from the center so I'm not sure what changes/updates could have been made. Curious to see what others with this update observe.

Curse them and tell them that your next car will be a Tesla because upgrades are free OTA.
At the same time, bend over and open wide.
