If you have a cable (or access to one) I'd let Wedge remote flash your car for you. Wedge1967

He can set your computer up remotely for the flash.

If you want, Dr Euro is a good friend in SoCal and I trust him with doing the flash. You can go to his web site for his contact. I've worked with Daniel on multiple projects. As for the remote flash, you would need a cable and all the software. Around 5GB of downloads and an extra 10GB of free space. So again, if you don't want to mess with that, give Daniel a call.

Does anybody know what EGS numbers I should be looking at to see if my Mechatronics module is compatible with the Alpina flash?

I have a 1/07 car, but recently replaced my Mechatronics with a new replacement part from BMW. This gives me some hope, but the fact that there are different replacement part numbers for pre-3/07 cars and 3-07-on cars makes me think otherwise.

I'd love to do the flash if my Mechatronics is compatible. Anything in particular I should be looking for in the EGS identification list that can answer that for me? Usually there is a "basic" and a "programmed" part number that can be read out.

Only think you can do is try to flash it. If it's a newer part and it takes the flash then you'll know. If not, the flash will error out and nothing will happen.

Okay, thanks. I was just trying to see if it was worth the trouble to get the needed programs working on my laptop to give it a shot. Since I have access to BMW's ISTA/P system whenever I want, I've never had the need for any aftermarket coding solutions.

Let me know if you need help. I have all the software you'll need. Do you have a K+DCAN/INPA cable?

I just have all the factory BMW diagnostic equipment at my disposal. I'm guessing I need a D-CAN to USB adaptor cable?

EDIT: I do have a cable for my HP Tuners setup that might work. I'll have to take a look at it.

K+DCAN

This one should be good also...
What's the difference, besides the price? If there's no real difference, then I'd rather go with the cheaper one.

Thanks!

Can this flash be done on a N54 without any tune or mod? My 335i is stock.

Also, does anyone know someone in the NOVA area that can do it?

Sorry if this was answered previously in this post, but has anyone seen a flash like this for a post 3/07 auto trans 335? Would love to get faster shifts. Thanks

Yes it can be flashed without any other mods. Although it is recommended that you have a tune because the actual Alpina B3s come with tuned engines.
