Citizens,

I have located an Alpina B5 owner in Germany who has agreed to get me the information I need. His car is actually this moment at Alpina for some valve work, so he will ask them to provide the goods.
This is step one in the search for the Holy Grail, but at least I have the right car and a willing owner. Now we just need some extraction work done.

Stay tuned, this project is alive and progressing!

Doesn't the E60/E61 B5 use the 6HP26 transmission vs. the 6HP19 in the 535's? Would this not cause a mismatch problem as well?

I thought the 535 used the 6HP21? The Gen2 transmission.


Cool stuff no longer installed.

Pretty sure that is correct in my 2008 535.

No cost. It's a software upload once we have it all figured out and successfully installed on a 5. We will then share the information.
At that stage I would certainly encourage anyone who have it installed to make a modest contribution to the folks who made it happen.
right now we are waiting for some key information so we can get the right software settings coded. Then it goes in test mode. I might be the guinea pig.

From what I've read, 6HP19TU = 6HP21. Regardless, the B5 uses neither transmission, no?

The B5 uses the 550i motor and transmission from what the Alpina website says

It's the same 6 speed ZF transmission we have, very broadly used even beyond BMWs. ZF 6HP21.
The E60 based B5 is actually a 2007 545i engine based car. It has a super charger, FMIC, oil cooler and other tweaks. 500 BHP, same on torque. Not sold in US.
Anyway, let's crack this tranny riddle and get it done!

Some slight progress.
Confirmed that the B5 Alpina uses same transmission as E60 535. ZF 6HP26
