Bad news... for some... like me....

If you're production date is 02/07 or earlier, you CANNOT flash. This is a post 03/07 build only!

HUGEEEEEEE Thank you cn555ic for flashing mine ... I guess im the first Xi in US to have it.

Just some info guys I have COBB installed and didnt have to unsintall it and shifting is so much smoother not in sport mode ... Also my clusters changed from D to D1-D2 so on ... S1 - S2 so on and M1 -M2 and so on. Its an 08 2008 335xi.

Correct...The cut off is 3/07. I got lucky as mine was just flashed and it works. I also flashed a 08 Xi with no issues so AWD are good to go also on this....OMG the feel is exactly what Wedge1967 stated. Shifts are crisp and you dont even feel it haul through the gears. You also dont get that jerk when it shifts gears, and it transitions to the next gear without any hiccups...

Guys you need to be 100% certain you know what your doing...Winkfp is nothing like NCSexpert. Things can go wrong rather quickly. So jumping right into it is not advised..Winkfp is a really dangerous software to play around with...
