Thanks all for the replies. Finally got it to work!

After a billion iterations of installing different versions of NCSEXPERT and different SP-DATEN updates, I finally was able to re-flash my EGS module. However. this resulted in the dreaded Gear! icon.

I solved this by flashing my TCU back to stock. I then was able to reset my EGS module, and my paddle shifter finally worked. The version of NCSEXPERT I'm using is ver4, with the buttons in English and the menus in German. I also downloaded a complete version of SP-DATEN 53.3, and only extracted the E89 directory. After this, I was able to reflash my TCU with the Alpina flash, and the paddle shifter fix worked.

Hope this helps someone who runs into this same issue

Any reason why Installing or switching Maps on my Cobb V3 causes me to have to re-flash the Alpina?

If I don't reflash it, the car will NOT start off in any gear less than 3rd. Even if I move it to manual and bump it down to M1, it's still 3rd gear....

Talked to Cobb on the phone about it, and their device doesn't alter or connect to transmission computer.... Well, it DOES something to it.

Yeah, I figured that out after having no choice but to drive the car after flashing the Cobb.

Subsequently, I've also figured out that you can shut the ignition off and lock the doors for 15min after flashing the Cobb, and it will not do the 3rd gear thing.



On a side note, does anyone know if you can Erase the UIF Write data using WinKFP?


Before I figured out the 3rd gear thing, I had re-flashed the Alpina program 4 or 5 different times. I think it says I'm down to like 58 re-flashes left...

I have a buddy who had the Alpina tranny flash and his paddles didn't work. I went thru the steps to fix the paddles but I get and error.

(I updated my E89 files to the latest 53.3. Do you think that was my issue?)

Here's the error log:

Well I updated my files using the BMW coding tool after those errors. So now I have to try to fix the paddles. When I update using the BMW coding tool, I update the SP-daten and the WinKFP, correct?

Thanks!!

This thread inspired me to order a cable and get set up for coding. I was able to flash the Alpina program on the first try, still need to get myself more familiar with NCSExpert, I got a VIN error when a loaded it up while trying to fix the paddles so I just called it a night. Went in and updated the daten files to 53.. I thought I was already at 49.x but either it didn't like the version or I was doing something wrong. Not too worried about it, going to try again tonight.

Really impressed with the WOT shifts. I feel like it will substantially improve the transmission's longevity.

^ That was easy.. gave it another try when I got home from work, I think all I did differently was hit f1 twice, and it prompted to type my VIN. After that I followed the directions from the first post and the paddles work again.

so...it appears that the alpina flash has not been around too too long. How are transmissions holding up? Ive seen a couple mentions of transmissions acting strange a while after running this flash??

Will this work for a 2007 335d UK?

Can anyone do remote coding for it, I have all software and cable, I don't trust myself.

Thanks

I'm fairly certain that since you have a D, it won't work.

Good thread but a couple things I want to point out that I had issues with. Not complaining by any means just a couple things I had trouble with that were not clear so I had to figure out on my own.

- The condensed SP-DATEN files linked in the post did not include the files I needed to reprogram my paddles, I had to download 15gb and pull E89 folder.

- I also had issues with NCS expert, make sure you are using a English text file, German is not fun. Also make sure you download and add expert profiles.

- I had issues related to not having the MAN file cleared out, open it up with notepad and delete everything then save it.

-I also had issues because I didnt run the LADEN script in the DATEN folder

Thanks for clearing this up. I'm going to attempt to flash this either tomorrow or Monday. My first flash on my e90!

Question I don't see the winKFP link anywhere in the OP? Upon searching I found http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451145 method, will this work? Thanks!
