7.0 didn't fix my problem

When I first left the dealer it felt pretty good. By time I got home it was unbelievably bad. Roll-on is very smooth, and feels improved. But, roll-off is impossible to get smooth. Anything above 3k rpms, when rolling off, it hits a cut-off point. It can't be done smoothly. Holding 40mph in 3rd is an adventure. Even the cruise control acts like a bucking bronco, especially down-hill. At high-way speeds, in 5th or 6th the problem is muted, but still there. This is pretty much the problem I was having before 7.0, only it's now more amplified.

Dropped it back off at the dealers Any thoughts what could be wrong? A bad TPS perhaps?

55 views and no replies. Not good. So I'm alone with this problem. I assume the dealer will be calling BMW Monday. I hope they have heard of the problem. Our trip next week isn't looking good

I don't know what you expected us to say? Give your dealer a chance to make it right. Might be a throttle cable adjustment issue. But I really don't think it's a 7.0 issue.

Like Joe said.

This is the first instance I've read where the update didn't have a positive outcome on low rpm throttle response. I have my GT going into the dealer Tues for the 7.0 install.

Just hoping someone smart than me had a clue what it might be. Or better yet someone else had a similar issue and an answer. I hate being the first<g>

Well somebody HAS to be first. Mine will be the first GT that will get the upgrade at my dealer. Mine is also the only one I know that had a final drive leak. On the bright side, you have doubled the amount of views since you first posted.

My best guess is that the software was installed improperly or the software push was not completed. I would recommend that they reinstall the software package.

Vladimir,

I did not get a picture of it. It was on the bottom of the drive. The dealer said the gasket was pinched during assembly and did all work under warranty. It was not a constant leak, more like it would weep after it was hot. The rear wheel would be streaked with fluid on the final drive side. Are you having a problem?

Looks like you called it. Just got a call that it was ready, and all they did was reload the software. Off to pick it up.
