I want to do the alpina trans flash. But, I only have ncsexpert.

I'll go search on piratebay tonight and see what files I find to download.

Btw, how would you return to stock if the I don't like the alpina flash?

It is really easy. You just need to read your ZB number in INPA, then you can flash your transmission and back whenever you want.

I have files prepared for flashing transmission with alpina software.
I sent you PM.

I get no scripts in inpa, even if I use the sgdat folder you posted in the first post.
Any clues?

Why not just use NCSDUMMIES...obd11? Sorry I'm confused with this approach...the connecter only cost 50 bucks.

Just to confirm OP. The files that are ran from the command line; Are they supposed to work on a 32Bit OS? Both files gave errors on my third try. Just wondering if this maybe an issue.

Try putting them in your system 32 directory and then running the command prompt as administrator

Thanks for the tutorial. Seems to work on the first try.

Question is when I launch INPA and go into the menus such as Engine --> Airbag I get a pop up that says
Version does not match
Language Variant does not match

Any idea how to fix that?

Just wanted to say thanks for the video. Received my cable today, and loaded the software per the video. I was successful most of the way, but ran into an issue with NCS Expert complaining about the MAN file.

Copied and renamed the TRC file to MAN, and tried again, and was able to successfully go back with F6. Found a video to illustrate the coding process for me, made the changes I wanted, and then coded back to the car. Looks like it all took, except maybe the windows/sunroof close with fob. Everything seems to be working with comfort access, though, including folding mirrors.

Regardless, I really appreciate the video, resources, and write up!

I pretty much did everything on the video and installed the extra files since INPA wasn't setup, after done that I changed the hardware to STD:OBD in obd.ini and installed the USB Drivers for the DCAN Cable so I can change the COM Port to 1. Once I did all that INPA recognized the cable, Battery was black then once I turned on the ignition it became black.

My problem is that when I try to see if it can communicate with my car I get all these ERROR, cannot find file MRS5.ipo. I tried all the options on INPA and all the .ipo files were no where to be found.

I'm also guessing all the other tools BMW Standard Tool installed doesn't work also.

I need help on this

By the way i'm using Windows 7 64-bit

Did you use the SGDAT that was edited into the first post (I think it says 2nd edit: for INPA or something like that)? That wasn't included in the video. As I recall, there is an SGDAT folder in the INPA folder. I just changed the old folder name to SGDAT.OLD, and copied the SGDAT folder I extracted into it's place.

Sounds like you have base communication since it can pick up your ignition states, though.

I got everything to work by just adding the missing files, did my first coding by rolling windows up on lock

Thanks for the great video, just saved me lots of money to code.

Anyone tried the Tools32 after following the instructions? The program runs but when I try to load up a program (E89) it seems to take forever then spit out an error in German.

Run regsvr32 files in the nfs\bin folder it needs to register newer dll files. I had the same problem

I got a question, do you always read off of CAS first? because I read off FRM first then FRM again to code my LCI Taillights. Everything is great but just wondering if were supposed to only read from CAS all the time first since there's only 3 choices in the beginning CAS, FRM, and NFRM.

Do you mean run REGVR32.BAT, REGVR32.EXE, REGVR32_S.BAT in nfs/bin?
