Dinan Flash for 09 335i

Just wondering, according to the Dinan website, the only way to flash ur ECU on 03/08 and later cars is to remove your ECU and ship it to their facility in CA?

"The MSD81 Controllers must be shipped to Dinan's facility in Morgan Hill, California for installation of the Dinan software. Please contact a Dinan representative for more information. Do not ship your ECU without first contacting Dinan"

That's insane, i wouldn't be able to drive the car for weeks. There's no other way to get my ECU flashed? Has anyone flashed their 09 with Dinan?

It's definitely not weeks, and I am pretty sure that a majority of the dealers out there are now MSD81-ready.

yeah usually if you bring in your car to an authorized dealer they'll ship it out the same day and have it back in no time at all

I think most people are seeing a 3-4 day turnaround. I dropped mine off on a Monday and had the car back on a Thursday and they provided a loaner during that period.

I would imagine fed-ex or any next day service would be amazing for situations like this

Thumbs up

Yup, it only took 3 days for the flash. Well worth the wait.

Most dealers don't provide loaners unless you purchased the car from them. Did you buy your car from that particular dealer?
