I understand that my car(Macan S 2022) requires a dealer update on the Bose system.
Has anyone had this done ,was it worth the effort ! ?

I have the Bose system, but have not been informed about any updates. Even though on a recent visit to the OPC some 3 weeks ago, it had the dash update done.

My 71 plate Macan is in for its 2 year service this coming week and that update is being carried out at the same time

What does the update “do”?

Besides “updating” 🤣

Maybe it puts it in for all those cars delivered that didn’t have the port at the time because of the semi conductor issues. !

Just had my car in for some warranty work and had the Bose speakers "updated". Evidently the software fix was to stop crackling on the bass speaker when it was played at full volume.

Some reports on the US forum suggests it reduces the bass level produced. Some owners over there have declined the update. Mine had the update but don’t think I have noticed any difference - though I’m really a bass fiend anyway.
