I might be able to help you out. I'm nearby on the IL side and work in Chesterfield and have a full coding/programming laptop setup. I've been him-hawing around about trying this on my 2006 330i (with a newer 2012 mechatronic); I'm told it should work, but I'm not as motivated since I don't expect an N52 will be able to push enough power through the tranny to notice.

I don't know where you got this info from but you can't flash this to your N52 regardless if you have 2012 mechatronics. The tranny is just not compatible and doesn't use the same software.

The info was from nate5ks here on the forum. I may be mistaken (I'll admit that I've seen lots of posts, but none actually confirming a successful N52 flash), but from what I've heard, the only difference is in the mechatronic (assuming your N52 has the ZF trans and not the GM). Post 05/2007 ZF-6HP19/21s had an upgraded mechatronic--the same one as the 335's. I had a complete overhaul on my trans including a brand-new mechatronic from ZF.

Part II of the DIY does not work. You need to set NCS to write using the Neodat file not the .man file.

Please dont try to confuse others as its proven the paddles shifters work using the method posted on the diy.

You're wrong. I did vertucaj's car, with paddle shifters, and the second part of the DIY worked exactly as described.

Please explain further how you think this works. Are you assuming that everone that does this flash has expertmode setup the same way?

You should have Expertmode setup the same way as everyone else. The NCS DIY, which seems to be the gold standard when it comes to setting up NCS Expert pretty clearly states how to setup the FSW PSW MAN profile. You then use that profile to perform the fix.

Now, since you're the ONLY person that's saying it doesn't work, would you care to tell us why you think you're so special that you don't have to follow the instructions that are given?

Just wanted to say thanks cn55ic!

Flashed back to the stock tranny flash for shits and gigs and your DIY worked perfect step by step. I feel pretty confident in flashing back to the Alpina when the time comes.

Is there a way to display it without transmission flash? (I have a 330d e90 LCI)

Just wanted to post a little review of my Alpina flash & electronics coding that cn555ic did for me.
I contacted him Aug 31. about doing some coding and within minutes he got back to me. He did the coding remotely which was very convenient because it saved me a 2+ hour drive to NY. The whole process took less then 1.5 hours (40 min for him to set up your laptop and about 30 min for him to transfer everything into your car). He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and works around your schedule (I had college night classes but he had no problem waiting until I got out and doing it at 9:00pm).

As far as the Alpina Flash goes, immediataley I felt a HUGE difference. My transmission is 5 times smoother and the DS/S mode is much more fun to use. All the electronic adjusts he did are great as well. Just one example is now I have a digital speedometer!

Overall, I would definitely recommend anyone who is able to get the Alpina Flash/ other electronics coding done contact cn555ic because it is absolutely worth it.

Bavarian Technic (BT) cable is specific to BT software. It can't be used (as far as I can tell--I have both) for INPA/WinKFP coding/programming.

Just did the Alpina flash on my car. Followed the instructions and it worked perfectly. Paddle function is back after doing Part II of the DIY.

Cn555ic, you're the man.

Check the date of the spdaten files. If you see it has 2013 then you definitely have sufficient files to code this in

OP I must thank you for your DIY post

I followed it and it worked perfectly. If I could I would defo buy you a cold beer

For the guys that don't have the software required I uploaded for all to share

Download here
https://mega.co.nz/#F!0t9EGLqC!X7tIMz-5_BJ472BWfmnMCA

This is the software I used and it worked perfectly. It will also help any remote coder as this step takes the most time effort

CN555ic has the best DIY step by step for the Alpina flash, THANKS
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...+flash+Richard

It's worth the effort and if your confident then having the software will benefit you long term
