It's never been done before, at least never posted here. Our M5 Guru, Jcolley, now operating as fast attack motorsports says it's a monumental task being there is no coding for the S85 and an F10 DCT. I'd be very surprised if this ever happens. Just my two cents.

Gintani has done 3 cars already equipped with the DCT transmission and it is amazing. I trust them only with this build. I will dropping the car off in two weeks and pick it up after four weeks once it is fully completed.

I could be wrong, but that looks like the M5 CSL a one of a kind built by BMW. The OP is talking about a Gintani M5 DCT swap.

So let me get this straight. Some tuning company is gonna call up the M division and say 'hey we need the DCT trans and DME coding for your E60 CSL since we want to do a DCT swap' and that's it? What does that mean 'there is coding'??

Simply that your statement that there is no coding for the S85 and the DCT is wrong.

Never gonna happen, at least not legitimately from BMW.

The software doesn't have a valid street release approval for public road use, so BMW would be putting themselves on the line if it were ever to get handed over without legitimately going through the public use validation process. All drivetrain and powertrain related software releases get an individual release/approval for the component, then a group "Verbund" release/approval for all the software/components together as partner components in the vehicle stating that the components (DME, DSC, EGS, etc.) are approved to work together on the same software level. This is how the whole i-step process was born and came to fruition.

The only possibility is if the software was privately written...the legitimate S85 DCT software from BMW will never reach public hands unless it is stolen and unknowingly distributed like the rest of the software and development tools seem to end up.

I've set my calendar to check in in 3 weeks. I'm hoping this isn't another pipe dream thread; i'd personally really like to see the DCT V10 combo come to life with a little more proof than people claiming it's been done before with no hardcore proof to validate the yip-yap
