Regular mode is now D1, D2, D3. Because this mode is the "economy" or "regular" mode, the shift point is low and between the low shift point and quick shifts, this mode almost feels like a CVT transmission. It's a bit of an unnatural feeling as you take off and the tach stays between 1,500 and 2,000 rpm and before you know it, your doing 50 mph in D6.

But of course, manual mode is where you get your money's worth as the quick shifts and rev match downshifts make the car ALMOST as fun to drive as a SMG/DCT car. Manual mode is definitely smoother then SMG, but it's not quite as aggressive.

If this software was $500.00, it would still probably be worth it. For $60.00 it's a bargain.

Ohhhhhh shit. Sorry bro. I didn't even think about that difference. Yea, this is e9x only. My bad.

I'd bet it's not long before someone figures out something for the F-3 series though. And when that happens I'd bet Jackson is one of the first to figure it out and offer it to his clients.

Vert Meet: Caravan to LaCanada/Flintridge, Sept 22.

I thought I'd throw it out to see if anyone wants to caravan up to the meet and drive up to Mt Wilson next week!

Calling all BMW Convertibles! It's been a while since we've had a VERT meet/drive to Mt Wilson. Meet at Starbucks on Foothill and Gould in LaCanada/Flintridge, CA. at 9am, drive up Angeles Crest Hwy and stop for photo op. This will be a leisurely drive and not a speed drive. I checked out the route last week and there are too many patrols with laser guns at several turnouts! We will stop for a photo op on Angeles Crest Hwy at one of the major turnouts, then we will stop at the mouth of the Mt Wilson Road (for an outhouse break) before driving up to Mt Wilson with enough time between each car so you can enjoy the hairpin road and drive as slowly or quickly as you'd like and avoid rocks flying back at you! For those of you who have never been on this road, it's a great road to experience your car's and your own turning prowess! (Just don't drive irresponsibly!) We will have to pay for parking once at Mt Wilson. There is also a café, Cosmic Café, where you can purchase food and drink. The drive is great, the views are great, and we should finish up between noon and 1pm so you still have the rest of the weekend to enjoy. Feel free to invite other bimmer verts! I'll start the rsvp list:


1. BoBoB (Blackonblackonblack) E93
2. (BoBoB's co-worker) Z4
3. tmdals0213 E93
4. Bleen E93 (M3)
5. StickMon E93
6. Blcoffee E92
7. duchozen F12 M6 vert
8. mindlessmark07 F10 (M5)
9. cityjohn (from E46fanatics) (maybe + Z3 and + Z4 buddies)
10. Miniz racer e93 (M3)
11. rockinryno E46 M3 (from E46fanatics)
12. Rags2richeS 330ci
13. fsisto53@gmail.com 98 Z3
14. mtrhed Z4M (maybe)
15. imz4n Z4 (from bimmerfest) + ???
16. skippershe 2001 Z3 (from bimmerfest)
17. Ron 2000 Z3
18. aram0492 E30

lukasbmw After your review I am seriously thinking about doing this to my car as well.

How long have you had Alpina software flash installed?

I noticed you mentioned Drive mode is a little different with low rpm's for economy mode. Is it still OK to have it in regualr drive mode. I normally have my car in this D mode on the freeway and regualr driving. Although it would be nice to have the rest of the featues for a track day and the occasional spirited driving.

Any feedback would be great.
