I got my bike back last weekend with the new airbox. The mechanic was pretty suspicious when I mentioned it might need a new airbox, but since I'd had it in once already, he agreed. I wanted to ride it to Vegas for CES, and the dealership made some effort I think to get a new airbox in and installed in 2 days, but they didn't know that with the new airbox design, they had to update the software. It took them a week to figure that out. Now, I have a new airbox with version 4.10 sw, and the bike is running good. Runs like crap when it's cold, but once it's warmed up, it's good.
I just don't know why dealers are uninformed about things like a required sw upgrade when the new airbox is used. It seems BMW doesn't try to educate the mechanics until they call in and ask for help. Alas.
When a government takes over a people’s economic life it becomes absolute, and when it has become absolute it destroys the arts, the minds, the liberties and the meaning of the people it governs.
