Just had 1st visit to an independent, many things annoyed me about the dealer.
Got front discs, pads, sensor/ michelins for the rear wheels, alignment, front left CV boot and Inspection 1.

I'm now applying for bankruptcy

oh and I have spent the last couple of days detailing her

Updated the Nav FW, and blessed it with 2010 road maps. Looking to do the same as sarb once I've found a set of EFX LED's.

Last night:

Updated DME, DXC, EGS, and VTG to latest software
Remote window rollup
Windows active after door has been opened
Removed Key In Ignition warning and gong
Tried to remove Fasten Seat Belt sign on OBC, but same coding I've used in the past didn't work (GEWARTUNG_TEXT = nicht_active)
Changed follow-me-home to turn on every single possible light (BRIGHT!)
High-beams and fogs together

Still looking for 3 turn signal and rain closing sunroof, but I'm stumped as sarb has yet to tell how he implemented.
