Yes you should. I got mine a few days ago and there was a firmware update that I needed. But I also have the beta software option checked in my access port manager.

Go into accessport manager, select options, then check the box next to "check for beta firmware"

Hi I'm a novice at modding. I just got the Cobb accesstuner. What are the best Gauges and Data Monitors to monitor on the 6 gauge set up of the accesstuner?

So what is the benefit of seeing the timing for the cylinders?

To see if the tune is causing you to pull timing corrections...If your pulling timing on the Aggressive tune for instance then that is probably cause your running91 vs 93. The less timing corrections you pull the better. With the aggressive tune, i pull a little bit of timing but only at certain times i.e. certain conditions.

Oh ok. I live in high altitude so the highest pump gas is only 91 will that cause a problem?

Since you run 91 octane and are in high altitude, whatever map your running whether its stage 1 or stage 2 should be the sport versions and not the aggressive versions....aggresive is meant for 93 octane or higher.

How'd you get the dealership to upgrade the DME? How much was it if you just paid?

So should the cylinder corrections for 1,3,6 be at 0?

I complained about surges at idle when going in the mountains skiing due to the cold and when it sits for a few days in colder weather. Knowing they would not try to replicate it as it will no longer get that cold at the dealership, also clearly as this was not an actual issue

The car had been recently serviced so it was clearly not a common problem that could be found during a test drive and only has 30k km on it for a 2011, saying it is babied all the time.

When arriving I explained that I had flagged the issue during last service and that they had found nothing mechanically wrong. So first had them check my software version and they mentioned it being still the original version from factory. I then mentioned that I had done some research and found that it could be an issue with older software.

I have an German import so factory warranty is a year only ,so I have a euro warranty extension where you have to pay 150 Swiss francs as a deductible. I asked what would happen without the warranty and they mentioned is would cost about 200.

It shouldn't be that hard to get them to do it, it's easy money for them. They plug it in a leave it for 4-5 hours. When it the first update it can take upto 8-9. They have fixed rates for this at least here so they do not charge the man hours.

Finally, go to the dealer and get an update for your DME. Once you have something newer than 9780B, you can use the AP as normal again. Thanks for your patience with this. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Has anyone who installed the Cobb AP had the car get an engine malfunction error code P2D55? How do I fix this?

It just means your VANOS solenoids are in need of replacing. Make sure the AP is uninstalled and get it to the dealer if it's under warranty. Once that's taken care of you can reinstall and start enjoying the AP.

Alright guys. 2011 335i running Cobb Stage 1 Sport. Few weeks ago, car started up and began shuttering, badly. Idle was wavering between 500 - 1200 rpm. Eventually it settled and I started driving, only to find that I had no power, at all. Flooring the car would get me to 60 after about 40 seconds. Very disturbing. Checked for codes, came up with P2BEE. Can't find anything online about it. Upon shutting the car off and starting it up again, the problem was gone. It has since resurfaced 2x in the last couple weeks. Any idea what P2BEE is? Thanks!

In the N55 Tech Code list the code says:

Fault code hex 0x2BEE
Fault code dez 11246
