Default Alpina B3 transmission reflash on 535 - 02-24-2013, 01:27 PM

Has anyone successfully done the Alpina reflash? I am ready to do mine but wanted to see if anyone had any problems.
5 series only, please. We know it's money in the 3!

All the research I have done says we shouldn't have any issue but I cant find anyone in Cali who has done it for me to meet up with. I may just have to take a long drive to Terry if hes willing to do it

I contacted cn555IC (the guy who posted up the DIY post), he hasn't gotten confirmation yet from any E60 guys yet. I don't have the cable yet else I would have tried to this weekend.

There will be a remote flash session with Wedge1967 soon for So.Cal people.
I had my flash done by him today with no problems.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Guys,

Don't bug Terry in an open forum to get involved with patent infringement issues. I can tell you that it's a total waste of your time. We need him to keep developing cool performance mods, not doing laundry in a California prison.

KEEP TERRY FREE! Don't ask him to commit illegal acts.

I just got word that it won't work on E60's. Someone tried on their 2010 535xi and it locked him out of the tranny. It would not get out of park, so it had to be towed to get flashed back to stock.

I think it depends on what transmission software build is in the car. I will be investigating, stay tuned.

Here are some ECU screen shots I was able to pull today.
Let me know if this looks familiar to anyone.

Is there any way to have the "oem" flash handy?

Then you could flash, try it out and if it fails, simply roll it back to the oem version?

I'm assuming that would mean getting your hands on the sp data oem flash file?

You would need to somehow obtain a copy of the software.

Question to the 5 series group.
If a high performance transmission flash were available, similar to Alpina, and it worked as well as the 3 series crowd is reporting, how many members would be interested in getting this update. I am wondering if enough of us joined as a group and offered a cash reward for the software.
PM me responses and I will tally and post.
Maybe that would accelerate the process if someone could be induced to sell it to the group.
