MPPK Exhaust Sound in N55 Automatic?

I've been debating getting this flashed to my car for the exhaust sound but am not sure if it's worth it in an automatic. I figure this is probably better in a manual since it is easier to over run the gears resulting in the desired burps. I do have paddle shifters so could always use the manual mode.

I read a bunch but never saw this question asked/answered. Anyone have experience with this flashed to an automatic?

BTW I already have a BMS Stage 1 installed so this would just be for sound and maybe some throttle mapping, not more HP.

It's worth it in auto. Also, I have Alpina B3 Flash. The pops and gurgles are instant when I shift from M mode.

Side note: Car has to be warmed up for it...

I have a DCT, not quite like the regular auto but I imagine experience will be similar. In regular D is keeps the burbles down but there are still some, usually when slowing down or coming to a stop. Sport mode (sport button, not DS) burbles more, whenever stopping at traffic lights I get it.
DS will probably be extreme, although I go to manual mode at that point and use paddles.

Pretty much any situation where the car revs up fairly quickly and back down again creates burbles.

Combine it with a custom exhaust and burbles become crackles and pops
I did the PE mod recently and it enhances those sounds in a great way.

I have an auto and only hear it in manual mode which is fine by me. Burbles are VERY substantial so dont worry about manual vs auto potency, granted I have a Remus Race exhaust which I'm sure ramps them up. Regardless of what exhaust you have get the flash, you'll be happy.

As long you have DS, and Sport Shift mode, you're fine you can hear it all day.

Awesome! Thanks for the feedback. I'll look into doing this soon. Hopefully I can find someone in Cincinnati area that can do it for me locally.

I currently has the ppk flash as well. Stock exhaust, bms cai. Sounds great. A few pops here and there in D mode when everything is warm. In DS mode you get them m. M mode your just like a bowl of rice crispies on a Saturday morning.

best bet is to just get it done remotely flashed, takes 15 minutes. PM Joe@topgearsolutions , he is well known around this form, probably done 200+ forum users here
