thanks everyone for the helpful posts. I'm trying to make sure I've got all the latest info correct on doing the Euro tune on my own 06 SMG III. The earliest posts all involved downloading and installing individual files from torrents that seem to be hard to find now - Am I correct in assuming that if I have the BMW Coding Tools V3 VM and WinKFP loaded with the latest datens, then all I need to do is flash ZUSB 7842206 in WinKFP, and that's it?
I've already poked around in winKFP and do see this ZB number is already there. I've used WinKFP before to flash my iDrive controller. So is this really all I need to do? Will use a decent power supply too, of course.
Decided I had read enough and went ahead and did the job yesterday. El Cheapo eBay K+DCAN cable over WinKFP running on a Windows VM via my Mac. Took less than 10 minutes, couldn't have been easier. I agree with some of the other posts on here - it could have easily been done without an external power supply as long as your battery is in good shape. I used a second car and jumper cables though, just to be sure.
Spent about 30 minutes total driving since completing the flash. Definitely a different feel. Can't wait until I get a chance to really spend some time behind the wheel to sort out my opinions.
I believe this is the undersized set for extra clearance. Consistent results thus far.
I'm repeating plastigage with red plastigage since the current readings are at the very end of the green plastigage spectrum, and I don't trust its window of accuracy at the very end of the scale.
Hello everyone, im new to this form and pretty new to the e60 m5 car itself. Im looking to figure out what things i need to look out for and especially things i can upgrade to keep this car running in great shape. I have did my research and found many problems with the smg transmission itself...
