Hi,
I live in Calgary and have a 2006 Bmw E60 M5. I was wondering if we can meet sometime or come to my garage or i can come meet you when it's nice out. My car is parked for the winter. I'd like to do that euro version on my car. and what ever else you have done to your car through the computer flash. Can you email me or call me. alfredo.garrido30@hotmail.com or [ph# removed]. If you can that would be great!!

Euro smg software features:
-4k rpm launch control with auto shift at red line in S6
-Default S5 / D1 settings from cold start (US default S3/D3)
-Smoother / quicker shifts between gears

I didn't make a video however you can find several examples of it on youtube, here is one:
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Here are the ZB numbers for the different SMG tunes from BMW:
M5 Euro
7840482 (ver 1)
7841399 (ver 2)
7842206 (ver 3 this is the one I used)

M5 US
7840483 (ver 1)
7841402 (ver 2)
7842208 (ver 3)

M6 Euro
7840484 (ver 1)
7841404 (ver 2)
7842210 (ver 3)

M6 US
7840485 (ver 1)
7841408 (ver 2)
7842214 (ver 3)

Technically you can take your car to the dealership and ask them to install software #ZB 7842206 (ver 3 euro software). They will have the file and equipment to do it, However they usually just update modules or follow the TIS telling them which US tunes to use.

What you will need to do this:
-K+DCAN USB Cable (I use this one)
-BMW Standard Tools (This includes NCSExpert which is what everyone uses to code windows etc, however for updating/flashing we will use WinKFP which is also included in the install)
-Up to date Daten files (simply the latest ECU files from BMW)

I use WinKFP version 5.2.1 and Daten files V41 (Which is 100% BMW software)

All of these files can easily be found on the internet. Please do a search!

The M3forum has been doing this exact same process to install the stock CSL smg software on US Spec cars. Giving a very similar outcome of faster shifts / higher launch control. Here is a video showing a US spec e46 with CSL smg2 software that was programmed and videoed by myself. Also another cool feature the e46 m3 guys have figured out is how to add competition m track mode (MTM) to non CSL/Competition package cars.

+ YouTube Video

Attached is a guide made by terraphantm on m3forum. You can use the exact same process however instead of using E46 files you need E60 files and instead of using the #ZB number for SMGII CSL use one of the above.

Besides already flashing many E46 M3's with different tunes I have also done Rnydyman M5 with the euro smg software who i'm sure will give you his thoughts!

Hope everyone finds this information useful!
Hello Vodyk,
I have a 2006 E60 M5. I want to do the euro version too. where and how do you download all the files? (winkfp 5.2.1 & V41). Can you give me a link to where I can download all this stuff? And the exact cables and where I can purchase them. That would be great.....

Also fair warning to 08+ guys I would be careful what cable you guys use. I know some can fail, I wouldn't take the risk unless using OPS/OPPS/ICOM.

I did an 08 two days ago with ICOM and no problems. After 335XI's problem of having a bricked smg controller just putting caution to everyone!
