Landman, How do you like the B3 flash? How hard is it to flash? I have not done any coding to my car, but I am very familiar with programming in general. Could you help me to set it up? Or it is better to pay someone to do it? Thanks

The actual flashing of the TCU isn't hard at all. What is time consuming and a little difficult is sourcing the correct daten files and getting NCSExpert working and happy. I would suggest you have a look at the ********* website. A wealth of info over there, plus you will be able to source the necessary software/files. Oh, you will also need the cable, which took about 2 weeks to get to me from Hong Kong. If you dont have the cable, then all you can really do at this point is alot of reading.

Should I buy the USB or the Ethernet cable version. I like the Ethernet version better.

There is only one version that I am aware of, USB.

Please read before you attempt a flash or even coding. You will need the USB cable as your car is not an Fxx.
