Interesting. Is V41 the latest ones? Hmm...
I take it you didn't use the DCAN cable the OP mentioned as it appears you have an 2006?I was the guinea pig for the re-program. I have to say - it's every bit as good as I hoped! The launch is incredible - it doesn't just smoke the tires, you TAKE OFF while it shifts for you! All you have to do is "Stomp and steer!" It modulates the clutch a bit to make sure you actually get off the line as quickly as possible. I was left virtually speechless. I haven't had that big a grin on my face since I went on the test drive before purchase. As soon as I get some dry weather again, I'll post up a vid, and some pics of what to expect. It's the SINGLE best mod. No ifs, ands or buts! Better, smoother shifts all the time.
I apologize if this has been answered already(read the entire thread hopefully), but did 335xi have the battery fully charged and maintained while performing the update?China clone or real deal? Also doesn't explain how some are able to use a k+dcan cable and other can't and why I didn't have issues but couldn't fix 335xi's. Something else is at play here.
So am I screwed from going to the latest SMG Euro Version?Your iLevel is the latest E60 programming from ISTA-P v45 - E060-11-12-500. ISTA-P would not allow anything but the most recent version of all modules in order to complete the programming. 7842208 is the most recent US version of the SMG software.
Phewwww. I'll try it this weekend. I bought this cable and have WinKFP installed:No anyone can go to the euro version.
What year is your car?
Actually, D1 may not be that bad. This will help with cold starts as it will shift sooner for you until operating temperature. For example, I start off in D2 on cold starts and that has helped me with my rear end clunk feeling a little until the vehicle has reached operating temperature causing smoother shifts as its not looking to shift so high in the rpm range. Then again, if you're wanting to manually shift on get go then yeah that could be a downside.It is normal for the first to be D mode, definitely the down side of this whole thing.
I'm going to attempt mine this weekend. What year is yours? I travel to pembroke pines area so if it works out I'd be happy to schedule a meet up.I want the Euro SMG flash done soooo bad but I travel every week for work and can't find the time to pull it out, ship it off to Vodyk, and more importantly be home to receive the unit when he ships it back. I am lucky to be home for an entire weekend, let alone a weekday, and when I am here, I need to drive it.
Does anyone know of a board member or another resource in South Florida that can flash the SMG of my 2006 beast?
I would even drive as far as Tampa or Orlando to have it done.
I'll look into it and let you know.Latinskllz - Thanks for the reply...
Can you also code the auto window up/sunroof close this as well as Real Time Traffic Upgrade discussed in the thread below?
I tried it and WinKFP gave me a 2021 error communicating with Ecu. I think my ediabas/BMW standard tools install is incomplete. Then I got caught up with some family matters. Will try again Wednesday.So... was your SMG flash successful?
