Alphina is the $@$#

I met John from ************* and had the alpina flash done along with my neighbor (he has an N54 and I have an N55). I had other works done such door chime, folding mirrors and DVD in motion etc... I have tried to get these done a few other times with various people whom screwed up the process and wasted hours of my time. John drove all the way out to Ashburn to my house, very professoinal and a huge BMW fan/owner (He has an awsome M3). Lets just say i am more than happy with his service and the results, love the smooth shifting and over all feel of my car and I know the Alpina doesnt help with HP but it sure made me feel more connected to the car. If you have coding needs, I highly recommend John

Worth every penny, do it and specially when it's done by a pro.

How does it feel when you feather it? I like to keep it under 2500 before it gets warmed up, so I'd prefer something that wasn't trying to go ape s* off the bat.

Was just about to make a post about him. But since one is open I'll piggyback off of this. Met up with him yesterday and today. Trans flash is so much better than it was and I'm glad I got done. Will recommend any one with a 6AT get it done by john. Great prices explained everything and very convenient. Will tell all my co workers and friends about him and hopefully get him more business.

Very smooth, gears change quickly with ease and you won't feel any jerkyness. Why US doesn't offer this on all the cars doesn't make any sense.

I got John to do the Alpina flash on my 335 yesterday as well. Highly recommend. He also coded some other stuff that I lost at my last trip to the dealer. I would definitely recommend the Alpina flash as well as John. Great service, great product.

This is the transmission flash that is used in the Alpina B3. It changes the shift points and the way the vehicle down shifts.

DVD motion is great - watching movies while stuck in bumper to bumper traffic is prob not the smartest thing to do, but it's just too tempting not to.
