    Never let other dealer manufactures not authorized to service BMW's touch your Bimmer, even if you bought it from them.

    Then again, this could be the very reason you are having an issue. Bring it to BMW and save us all another horry story.

    Well congrats and welcome.

    From top to bottom.

    #1) Have them check struts under the hood. Sometimes these work loose and manifest as noise from window/dash

    #3)Only BMW dealer: You are no older than PROGMAN 9formerly CIP) 19.xx. We are now up to v22.xx with v23 due in September. V20 and higher give you MP3 capability on your single slot CD and Nav DVD slots. Most dealers only know Target Data Status which translates to the more common CIP or PROGMAN usage.

    As chaplehillchuck said, ONLY your BMW dealer is qualified or even capable of doing software upgrades an dI would not do harware anywhere else either.

    Welcome to ownership of a find driving car. Regarding the software I would take it to a BMW dealership as the have the dignostics tools to tell you the software version and get you an update. They should also be able to check the other problems that you describe.

    Just Got 2005 645!!!!! Now haveMajor questions!!

    Hey guys i did it.. i got a black/black 2005 645 Production date 2004 / 10... the Caddy dealership that i got it from is going to replace some damaged panels (ripped lether from baby seats) and the fabric molding around the window is completely falling down (they say BMW warranty will fix that)....

    OK now 3 questions

    1. when i pull into a driveway/7-11 / most places with a slight slope.. there is a VERY noticable "rubbing/creek" noise coming from the windshield/dashboard area. Any ideas?

    2. On my first drive my transmission "Banged" pulling out of an ice cream place i had started the car.. put it in reverse just fine.. then drive then i coasted to the street... then when i slowly got on the gas... "BANG". What should i have them check for? This has happened once so far. but i've had it one day.

    3.How do I check software version? since i know the salesman and a very good his close friend is a GM at a BMW dealership near Philadelphia he is going to get the panels replaced and the car looked over. Can they upgrade the software?
