Not sure what you mean, but as the TQ reduction requests are adjusted you already should see improvements on high TQ shifts. For the majority of the cars/transmissions the Stage 3 V1.0 works fine. Some have encountered 4->5 issues. Those might want to try V1.1., where shift timings have been adjusted to take care of that.

If I want to flash back to stock I need the flasher license

So flasher license + each stage license
You need the flash license. Thats the first thing and the base for everything else. Without the license you are only allowed to backup your TCU and read/delete fault codes. The flash license enables you to flash your own custom tunes (based on your backup file) and flash OTS Stages from the xHP Store. The Stages are grouped in 1,2,3 and are Map packs, where multiple versions will appear over time. You have to look at the Stages more like feature packs. Obviously most of the people go for Stage 3, so the update focus is on Stage 3.

In general: The manual from our website answers the most questions. www.xhpflashtool.com/resources/xhp_manual.pdf

Works for the majority, yes. But some guys still had to remove JB4.

If Terry allows me to create a sticky, happy to do it.

Think I answered this in one sweep right above. The TCU flash won't affect anything else on your car, besides the TCU. So you won't loose any coding or similar on other units.

please take a look at this 3-4 shift log

running wedge 94 octane tune FBO+ timing corrections are most likely due to the winter gas still.

this is on XHP STAGE 3 v1.1 ....... the shift felt quick but seemed to have hung up as the torque came back on which delayed the shift.

is there anything that can be done to correct this?

if there wasn't a shift delay at 4839rpm, this would have been a quick, firm and clean shift into 4th.

Ken has been notified of the Torque limit active 1 which came on midway through 3rd gear.

I'm assuming you have a Alpina flash? If so it wasn't done right and will need to be coded properly using ncs expert

As mojo already suggested, you're likely getting a "Coding missing. Please recode your TCU properly before continuing." message.

The solution is exactly what the app says:

Map update for all N54/N55 Stage 2/3 customers.

D mode shifts are now way smoother and faster at the same time, compared to the first versions.
To get the new versions, just hit Re-Download in the Misc. Menu and xHP will download it to your device. Then visit the xHP Shop once, so that the new version descriptions get synced.
We also changed the Version Codes. The first digit now marks different versions of maps, the second digit marks revisions of the same map.

I noticed on my fault i have coding missing also .
I have a 5 series and just like many others, i have the sport trans flashed, so i assume my guy that flashed me did not do that extra step in winkfp...problem is i may not be able to track that person down, as i assume this may happen to others...question is, would it be possible to have an option of additional coding available through xhp for the 3ers that have that fault for the alpina flash and the 5ers that have the sport flash? Or even maybe have the stock flash available kind of like mhd has?

We would have to implement the whole NCS stuff in xHP to be able to code a unit from scratch. Thats out of our scope. xHP can only restore a previously saved coding, but not determine which coding is the right one for a given car.

Here's a rather straightforward manual how to code your car:

- Copy the file attached in your C:\NCSEXPER\PFL folder
- Start NCS
- Load Profile  Expertmode FSW PSW Manipulate ohne MAN
- Hit F2 (Chassis), Select E89 (or E60 etc.)
- Hit F1 VIN/ZCS/FA
- Hit F3 ZCS/FA f. ECU, select CAS
- Hit F6 (Back)
- Hit F4 (Process ECU), select EGS
- Hit F3 (Execute Job)
- Done

Please make sure that the text matches the functions on your F-keys in NCS!
if the text appears at another F-Key, use this one!

Here's a link to the nececessary tools: https://mega.nz/#!kAASwa7I!AJLVnnEBw...2BsZofE-TBYGmk

For all those, who don't want to do it by themselfes, but payed someone to flash Alpina/SAT on to their car: Call them and tell them to properly code your EGS. That means, tell them to finish their Job.

I previously purchased the stage 2 map. Just clicked re- download and app said it synced successfully however I still only have version 1_0 available. Any suggestions?

you also have to visit the xHP Shop once. I corrected that in my post above.

Thanks. That worked! Definitely much faster d mode shifts. Still pretty smooth and mproves with adaptation.

Would love the higher stage 3 d mode shift points incorporated into stage 2. I also would personally like more "eagerness" to downshift from 6th to 5th. I know custom maps are coming soon.

Not complaining here. We definitely now have something better than we've ever had before. But rather trying to help out for my benefit and everyone elses. Here examples of what I'm talking about in the higher gears:

60% + throttle in 6th gear but no downshift: http://www.datazap.me/u/mfish123/not...data=2-5-15-23

There is small window to get a downshift to either 5th or 4th. If I try to give it more than 60% throttle often I'll often over shoot and unintentionally downshift to 4th when I really wanted 5th gear. And then I back off the pedal get back up to 5th for an instant and then back up to 6th: http://www.datazap.me/u/mfish123/dow...data=2-5-15-23

Gotcha. I'd like to keep it like it is in the XE mode, but I will test changing the E Map for quicker downshifts in that speed area.

The E Map is the one used, when the rate of change at the pedal rises over a certain threshold. So if you step in slowly, the trans stays in XE map, if you move your feet quickly, it will jump to the E map. Currently E and XE are set to the same values in that speed range. Only below 60 mph they differ.

How difficult would it be to allow the user to select the aggressiveness for each individual mode. For example, I like a really mellow stock-like D mode (stage 1), but a kickass M-mode (stage 3).

It would be nice to take this to the next level and have user options much like MHD so we can better adjust the maps to meet our specific needs.

I was thinking the same. I'm sure many more cool things will come with time. In a perfect world, I'd love to see map packs as a single purchase then be able to choose with a slider or check box one of maybe 3 options for shift speed/firmness and 3 options for shift points for both D and S modes.
