You have a drift/ pull in the vehicle and a software reset was done? Was it done to the EDC (electronic damper control system)? What I have seen with these vehicles in the tires causing the pull. I would rotate your tires side to side and see if the drift goes away. If not you may need to have an alignment done. Since your vehicle is an f10 I would recommend having the dealer do it since its a special procedure to align the rear end of your vehicle. Hope this helps.
