Alpina B3 TCU Flash (335's & 135's) & Feature Coding

So, as most of you may have heard we can now get better performance from our cars due to the Alpina B3 TCU flash (discovered by cn555ic). Well, good news one of the more experienced coders on the East Coast is coming to Boston this weekend. He coded my car over the summer so I was speaking to him about doing the flash to my car as well. He flashed a few 335's this past weekend.
If any of you are interested, let me know and I'll see if I can work with him to put together a package deal for us. Please put your name below if you're interested (flashing/coding/both).

I'm curious to know what the flash does and the price. Will it work if the car already has Dinan software installed?

If anyone is interested I can code the alpina flash at my shop or at a mass tuning meet or something. This is probably one of the best mods for us AT guys!

Just had this done by Steve, the creator of this mod in NYC (I'm from Boston area though). I felt more comfortable having the guy who released this do it for me. What a difference it makes! D mode is more economical and tame, seamless and smooth gear changes.
S mode is very quick, responsive, and sharp. No harsh gear changes.
No more gears hanging in higher revs or jerkiness changing around gears.
Rev limiter is now raised and M mode is more fun too!
I was a skeptic at first but this mod is truly amazing for something that takes 10 minutes or less for someone to do.
If you're uncomfortable coding yourself and/or don't know what you're doing, have someone do it for you...and enjoy.

Is anyone in Boston able to do this still? I'd totally be interested after I bring my car in for the wastegate issue next week.

I don't really want to buy the cable because I don't trust myself to do the coding -- but I'd totally buy you beer/pizza?

Sorry all, have been extremely busy with school. For those of you who asked, I didn't want to post his info without his permission, but I just spoke with him and he said that you can contact him directly. His name is OK and you can reach him here:

(585) 496-4648
codemycar@gmail.com

He also said he'll be back in Boston next week. kgroschi, he can do the flash remotely.

UsualSuspect did mine, He and Bren are tight so I'd imagine Bren might do it as well.
He's in Boston.
