ASS update?

I have a 2013 328i with a build date of 2/2013 and my ASS feels very different from my last loaner which was a 2014 328i. The service team says there was a software and hardware change after many complained of rough shutoff and startup. The 2014 I drove shut off very quickly and would restart with no shaking - mine is abrupt and very noticable. Different logic as well in stop and go traffic - very usable vs I only use mine in long traffic stops.

Has there really been a hardware change or is it just software? Any specific info would be appreciated and then I can present it to the dealer and get an upgrade if availablel.

Thanks

140+ views and not one response - has anyone had an update done and what were the results?

I have a 2013 (01/13 Build) 328i and had the dealer code the ASS to remember the last setting when turned off. It seemed to run slightly smoother, but I rarely use it since it's always off now.

I think a majority of people have had the remember-last modification and don't use ASS.

There has definitely been a hardware change. I have a 2012 335 and a 2013 loaner 335 gt and the gt switches off and on much smoother. Almost seamlesa
