Interesting.. in theory at the bottom you could flash a mechatonics clean ford unit with a BMW file..

You can buy the entire transmission for what they want for the valve body and MCM/ECU. car-parts.com

CN, I saw on the other site you wrote:

"This Alpina TCU flash works for model years 3/07 till present N54 engine only."

Would it work on a 2010 E60 (5 series) with AT, since it also has the N54 engine?

Agreed Wedge, I was just looking for part numbers and options to see if we could find that TCU cheaper. I would assume after you buy the transmission most people would do the Sonnax zipkit before they install it, I am wondering on upgraded torque converter..

stock with flash will handle RB's. Not sure if you want to spend 4g's to get a level 10 rebuild also.

I jumped on the VTTS3 buy. Haven't done anything to my tranny. Will this upgrade suffice??

Garage List
Just finished this as my first coding project ever! Bootcamp 2007 MBP running 3gig and about 60gig for the partition. First, thanks! Second, this is AMAZING.

My door jamb shows a 03/07 build date. Since this is the cutoff, am I good or can it go both ways?

Yeah, it takes under 10 mins if the files are already configured. Just make sure all lights (interior and exterior)/air are turned off as BillionPa noted.

Just did the flash today and I like it. Drive is nice and feels refined while sport mode appears to have better shift points and handles abrupt WOT stops better than OEM (it up shifts quicker). A huge thank you to cn555ic for sharing this with the community!

Anyone is S FL who is interested PM me. I am in Stuart and Jupiter quite often.
