Alpina Flash for 703ers (DMV)

Hey Guys, I got in contact with one of my regular coders who has assured me that he is able to do the Alpina Flash. He will be in the area this weekend (til Saturday) to do the flash as well as other coding (windows up with key fob, fold mirrors with key fob, etc.). I'll be getting the flash done Saturday in Silver Springs, MD. He has given me pretty good group prices depending on the number of people.

If interested let me know. For prices, PM.

**UPDATE**

So far, here is the list of people interested for tomorrow's coding:

1. Me
2. 335 MI6
3. next level
4. Sam335ix
5. zeel

Please let me know if you want to add any more people (member or not) to the list.

***UPDATE #2***

I spoke to the coder recently and unfortunately he will NOT be able to do the Alpina Flash in the morning. He wants to use my car as a 'test mule' until he can assure quick, rapid, and reliable flashing. If all goes well, he will be doing the flash a little later in the day and I will notify those who want that done individually by PM. However, he will still be available in the morning for regular coding if that's all you're getting done.

I'm extremely sorry for the confusion.

Anybody know how dealerships have reacted to the Alpina flash so far? My dreams of retaining CPO are the only thing holding me back from the tranny flash.

Good question. I'd ask cn555ic about it since he probably has the most experience.

I need to do further investigation as to how the dealer will look at this, rewriting transmission software doesn't seem like something they'd be happy about. That, and I'll be under the car with Clem tomorrow at 9, so I wouldn't be able to make it. Congrats to you guys though, enjoy it!!

What's everyone's experiences/thoughts so far? I'm loving it, especially in manual mode.

I don't like how it wants to go up to 6th as fast as possible. For example yesterday I was at a red light and straight ahead it goes up hill, so when it turns green by the time you cross the intersection your doing roughly about 25mph. At 25mph your already in fourth gear, so when your going up the hill the car feels like it's struggling to go up the hill. But other then that I love it

I only drive in manual mode, so its perfect for me.

Allen I heard that it may take some time for D mode to relearn your driving habits. Not sure how true this is though. I tried S mode recently and it seems more in line with what you might want out of D mode.

I definitely feel you about D mode, although it should relearn your driving habits and adjust.

The S-mode seems a tad too aggressive to be my D mode...Seems right at home as is.

M mode is where it's at!
