Nope different hardware needs different software.
The Alpina B3 years were from 9/2007 - 3/2010. The DCT versions of the 335i came at a later date. In which Alpina never did do any software for them, the new 8-speed ZF transmission however does have an Alpina flash for the F30.

LSB, where did you go?

If those that need help can also whatsapp at 6906 8965. I'm free to help most of the time!

Would you be interested in a remote session ? I'm in the UK and my car is manufactured 08/07

I have all the software and cable loaded up but not sure if this is ready for the Alpina flash

Does this mean all F10 have this flash too? Or only ones with N55 or V8 models?

would it make any sense to do this alpina transmission flash on an e92 with dinan software? not sure if the dinan software makes adjustments to the transmission already.

Hi, folks, Igot a N54 DCT 335, now loaded with JB4. Sometimes I step hard on the gas, the check engine light is on, I need to stop over and start the car again.
So I am thinking to modify the ECU, or get any chip instead of piggy JB4.

Is it help? any idea?
Thanks

I've had this after install and I've been told to change my charge pipe and have a boost leak test

Do you guys have any interesting smells when running hard with the JB4?
Mine smells hot and sometimes like coolant. I've had a flush and checked for leaks but didn't find anything.
