Software update question

I have a '04 330i 6spd with 94k that's completely stock. I just bought the car a few weeks ago and have realized it has the somewhat common 2500-3000 rpm sputtering issue. It's not terrible but it's noticeable and annoying. I've seen that the solution seems to be to have the dealer reprogram/update the software. I'm still getting up to speed with my e46 knowledge base but I was wondering if anyone is familiar with whether or not any aftermarket products (Dinan, Shark, etc) solve this problem? I would just hate to give a dealership a few hundred dollars when I could spend a little more and add a little performance in the process. Thanks for the help.

No, but I haven't really followed up with it. The issue I'm having is fairly subtle and has been bumped down my priority list a little. When I get it taken care of I'll post an update.
