"noob question"
Is it more safe for the gearbox to go whit the alpina flash on a JB4 tuned car? Does Alpina handle more hp and tq better then the stock flash?

I believe the alpina flash handles the extra power and torque better

Hi there,

First i have to apologize for my english :|
Hopefully you can understand my following Description.

I had flashed the origin B3 Soft on my 2009 N54 335xi (ZF 6HP19TU).
Cleared Adaptions and drove about 1000 Miles.

Since the beginning of the Flash i had Problems when take of from a Full stop in D with around 30-50% Throttle.
The transmission them don't Switch Gears in fully, nearly like a CVT.
Feels like its trying to Switch next gear and it Happens nearlY but Not Fully.
Happens from Frist to 4th or 5th gear.
If i Try less or more Throttle everything is okay.
In S and M no Problems too.

Then flashed back to stock Software 1492.
No Problems with this.

Tried Both Alpina Softwares, Both Sucks.

Oil and Filter are Brand new (Original ZF Oil and pan).
With Stock Software no Problems.

Anyone has an idea?

Thanks!

Currently my alpina flashed 6AT, when cruising around town, will shift around 1600rpms. Are you able to change those shift points to 2000rpms for every gear?

Here are 2 vidoes to show you how AT with alpina trans flash upshift at really light throttle, with my DME flash.
You won't get this with the obsoletes tables published a year or 2 ago :

Read the DIY about loading the Alpina B3 trans flash using WinKFP. Is it possible to flash the B3 using the MHD flasher? If so is the process the same as loading a custom map?

No, all MHD does is when you're flashing a map it asks you which transmission you have.

DCT

Auto w/ Alpina Flash.

Hi there,

does anyone still have the Alpina B3(S) .bin anywhere?
IJE0S or Europe Version will be fine.

Link in the Download Section on bxxxxboost is down or files deleted

Thank you!

Marc

Interesting. Thanks for finding. I'd like to learn more. I see Vivid Racing is located in Arizona in the Phoenix area. I wonder if @SteveAZ knows anything about them!

Hey there, I had/have the Alpina trans flash installed a few years ago. I had to replace my DME recently. Do I still have the Alpina flash ? Does it live in the DME, or in the trans itself?
Will I have to reflash it? Thanks! Larry

Hope you experts and trebila can help to answer my questions.
I have 07/09 e90 335i AT with power goals of ~480wtq.
a) Does my year model has different transmission than earlier models ? hp21 vs 19TU?
b)Does tcu flash really help to prolong trans life? or can actually negatively impact it?
b) alpine vs xHp, which one you would recommend?
