One time I was at my dealer (Mischlers in Beaver Dam WI) to repair, I guess it was the fuel gauge, bad fuel strip. I wanted the update done to the cluster for the brake pad warning (so I wouldn't have to visit them to reset the brake pad warning light every time it came on).
I asked, when I picked it up, if they fixed that (it was a 1 day job to fix the fuel gauge, actually just an hour or two) and they said that they didn't, that they wanted to do that when I brought the back back for a service, because the last time they did one the bike was tied up a coupe DAYS while the dealer and BMW sorted through a rash of problems caused by updating the cluster (other control units also needing updating to make it all work), so I am guessing they might have had a problem similar to this and that's why it took so long, I can just see calls from the dealer to the BMW North America tech office and probably even back to Germany.
