    This is reported on ev-fw.com

    Presumably an AP1 car. Anyone get this? Any info on what's new in it?

    Why presumably HW1? The pattern that the recent updates have been following is even numbers of HW2 and odd for HW1,

    Appears it was a fix for fan control for AP1 cars.

    Firmware 8.0

    Yeah, saw that. So much for the pattern. Also, what an underwhelming update.

    I'd love to have a once-again, properly working recirculate mode before my seasonal allergies kick in (North American springtime) and I'm driving around in my pre-facelift, non-bioweapon defense mode, S. For some owners that actually could be a big deal.

    My 2013 non-AP P85 was just at the SC for TPMS sensor replacement/upgrades (I now get the individual TPMS readings on my console) and I received this firmware upgrade while it was there as a result. Not sure if it was a requirement for the TPMS upgrade.

    Remind me again what the issue was with the recirculate mode? I can check if it was 'fixed' in this FW.

    [edit]
    nvm. i checked the Firmware8.0 thread and then went to my car and see the same release notes about the fan fix. and AFAICT, yeah, fan setting '1' on recirc works fine. :)

    Did they fix the introduced problem of auto-lock from VER 17.6.15. You can unlock the car and no matter what you do the car auto-locks.

    I stayed on 7.1 in my Classic specifically because of this. Thankfully, hearing that 7.8.16 "Fanboy" came out, I hit upgrade. Sadly, it was just another 7.1 update and my car sat for about a week without another update. That should be good now as I dropped my car off at Service yesterday and they are on their way back with it now with the new firmware pushed to it (and my door handle serviced yet again). I'm looking forward to my recirculated air!

    I don't understand from your description about what this "bug" is. Could you post about it inside the Firmware 8.0 mega thread please?
