Well, with the SAT on the E60, you have many modes. You can have "sport" active which will be like in between "D" and "S", it also stiffens the chassis, along with changing the steering resistance. Then you can have "sport" and gear on "S" and it's really, really fun, then when you go "sport" and "M" that's when it gets exciting. Shift times and smoothness are just like the video posted above, and you get rev-matching when you downshift.

It has the paddles as well!

Google n54 forum. Should be #2 in the results. The forum name is banned here out of fear of losing members.

you first need to have INPA/Ediabas working on your car with the right cable. after that you can start researching how to fix the TCU

Well, the 335i AT also has rev matching on downshift. So other than adaptive suspension, you'll like the flash if you have an AT with paddles.

Is your car still over at HPF? If so I can run over and flash it for you.

We should have the 2nd Alpina flashed TCU E92 by tomorrow in the US, unless Wedge is going to HPF to flash the car there....Benzy68 is coming to see me tomorrow. We need to get this out to him for further testing with logs along with Wedge1967 we should soon have some logs to see what the differences are. Based upon Wedge's initial feedback, this looks to be a FTMFW! Big thanks to Wedge1967 for having the balls to try it out on his car first!

Not much. Just work... Give Chris a call and let him know I can drop over to flash the TCU. They'll need to have it on a battery charger. Have Chris give me a call - 503-679-3538 so I can work out a time with them work on the car. Hopefully it's not all ripped apart. Seems like that was the case every time I've been over there and they were doing something with your car.

One thing I noticed was before I raised my red line, the shifts were so slow that I was actually hitting the rev limiter when I was on it. From what I can tell, the shifts are crisper, quicker, and more precise. The verdict is still out on if this will help hold the power upgrade turbos are making. Regardless, you'll like the upgrade.

Shoot him an email with authorization for me to flash the TCU. They know me, but not well enough that I can just walk in and plug into your car.

Great work! Thanks to your efforts (and Wedge's willingness to give it a first try), we should have this tested in a single turbo 6AT within the next few days

Great stuff! Nice cool "workaround" for that damn encrypted TCU...
Wondering if this could be done to a DKG somehow, I have everything, ICOM, INPA, WINKPF etc... Just thinking which TCU config could be beneficial if all... I do not think Alpina has a DKG edition with a N54 isn't it?
