Forgive me in advance, im still trying to learn this stuff. Does that make sense what they are saying or is there miscommunication here. Thx.
Email them the map then and ask them how you can open it. The maps can be resaved in a format where we would need to enter the the serial number for each person who wanted to open it but it would not be practical from a time perspective.

Besides some of the functions we use on the n54 side are not in Cobb. The open flash is really the future as far as back end flashes go for the n54 and we've moved on. We will be doing Cobb maps for the n55 but nothing else for the n54.

With that being said Terry, I'm moving on as well. Someone posted up BB flash drivers today. I will be giving this a try in the future. Thank you.

The end user can use the Access tuner race software to modify it to the parameters of the free BB flash tunes. Cobb is making it sound sooo simple. So tell me, what's the bad news or can this actually be done!

Terry Can you chime in on this. Thanks.

True story...I kind of figured this was what you were referring to, just wanted to confirm you guys hadn't come up with a table I hadn't discovered yet.

thanks

Trying to decide if I should do the BMS backend flash on my daily winter driven 335xi. Car is JB4,50/50 Meth - 3 psi adder,FMI,intake, 94 pump gas. Questions are:
1. How much does this effect driveability/fuel mileage ?
2. Pump gas flash is best for my mods?

Just got the BT cable in case my battery dies so basically free at this point.

If you have the cable already I don't see why you would not try, it's free!

What is your experience with a backend flash?

Thanks

Why not try it. See how it works for a tank of gas. You can always put your original back on if you don't like it for some reason.

1. Drivability pretty much the same with a bit more torque down low. I get just under 500km around town. (using the pump backend flash via cobb)

2. I know nothing about meth.

Okay thanks.
I'm having trouble dowloading the BB software. Says I don't have permission to access this page. I did recently signed up but it appears my account has been validated. Anyone else had this problem?

Read a page or two back. Something's wrong with the website. There are multiple ways to get it on this thread. Just look back a little bit.

Edit: I just saw terry posted that he updated the link in the first page of the free flash sticky. Try that.

Okay thanks - I installed the race flash and it felt good. I will do some logs tomorrow. I am most interested to see what changes there are in the timing recovery post shift.

I don't know if this has ever been asked, I was just wondering why don't have a specific pump flash for automatics?

Thanks

Old thread, but a question: The thread talks about using the COBB AP to load backend flashes. However, I also see it mentioned elsewhere to use the Bavarian Technic cable.

Same flashes, so the latter can now be used to do what the COBB was required to do earlier, right?

Thanks!

The Bav Tech cable flash will do everything the BMS Cobb flash would do. It is also not locked so you can make fine adjustments to it for your set up. There is a big thread dedicated to the BimmerBoost flash using the Bavarian Technic cable here

Each flash method has its own file type and loading tool. You cannot mix and match the Cobb and BimmerBoost stuff. But each method is virtually the same, with the exception of the Cobb taking less then 1 minute to change flash files, and not requiring a laptop.


2018 Audi RS3 | Stage 1 E85 and 91 Flashes | JB4 for Logging

SOLD: 2017 F36 440i Gran Coupe | PS2 | MPPSK | Track Handling Package | JB4

SOLD: 2007 E90 335i | PS2's | JB4 | FBO | 160k+ miles on the car, 120k+ miles on the JB4

Log, log, then log some more...
