It's not possible to update to the new (current) iDrive system with simply a software change, it's a complete hardware change too.

We have the new system in the X5 and it's very very good, but I have the flip-up system in my 135 and it show's it's age a bit.

I did get an updated 2012 DVD, which didn't change much just has the latest mapping.

So i have been asking my service center about updating it, but all they seem to offer is an slight update to my current software, which changes none of the functionality

Is this really not possible to do? has anyone one done it or know of a dealership that would offer this service?

Thanks
