FYI, I am awaiting the installation of a CD changer that I ordered with the car, but was not fitted on delivery. My car has already visited the dealer twice with no success. First time, they told me that they didn't have the necessary bits, and the second time the story was that the CD changer was "incompatible" with the car's software release level and therefore could not "talk" with it. The solution on offer now is to replace the display unit with one with a higher software release level. Quite why the display screen has anything to do with the CD system baffles me, but having pointed this out to the dealer they have stuck to their guns. I am now awating to hear when this work can be done as the part is back ordered from Germany (apparently, it also fixes the cold weather failure of I-Drive and so is in great demand).

My dealer hasn't mentioned charging for this work and, if they have any sense, they won't bring it up either!
My UK 530d is in today for the recall software upgrade + new screen etc. This fixes a number of problems including the auto gearbox rough change 2nd to 1st problem on cars built between mid August and late Sept. Fingers crossed!!
