As I took my 128i in for it's first free oil change - at one year - it goofed up for the first time on the radio. I keep a Garmin GPS plugged into the aux port all the time. Suddenly, it would not recognize it. I tried plugging and unplugging the Garmin and nothing changed. I don't know if that's what it was but they pulled up a code off my key when I got to the dealer and reprogrammed the car. It did the same stupid routine one time since. Shutting the car off and restarting it resolved it that time.

I think there's a bug in the car's computer. Fortunately it doesn't happen often.
