It won't show up in the service history, so yes.

Well, I got the cable, drivers, and it it seems like INPLOAD is somewhat talking to my car. Any kindhearted person willing to help me do the ALPINA tune?

I went to have the Alpina flash done today at my local performance shop. I had some other coding done by them as well (seat belt chime). Unfortunately my shop told me my car was not accepting the flash No go.

Been running flash for solid week now. Just like everyone says, D mode shifts quick so I like it while car is warming up but the second my oil needle starts moving I'm in S mode. Going to do some full tank mpg tests and see how I avg around town. I don't possibly see how I could be doing better with how I'm driving it now.

Btw. Shout out to. ****** for helping with my remote coding needs!

That's how I felt. D is so weak I have to drive in DS. Thus a lower average mpg. Still like it though.

if you have a 2009 6AT 335i there should be no issues flashing your car. find another shop.

Quick question before I get excited and purchase the cable . My manufactured date is 03/07 . What are the odds of it being compatible . I have bad luck with these things .

I had my trans flashed about a week ago by Wedge. My average MPG has gone up despite driving like an asshole in manual mode 70% of the time. With the way the Alpina flash operates in D mode, I think it makes up for how I drive in S and M mode.

All 03/07 cars were issued with the new GKE215 MCM module within the ZF 6HP19TU transmission.

You can find links on this and other sites like B B to the $35 K + DCAN (INPA Compatible) cable if you're not wanting to spend $100 for the One Stop Shop cable. Feel free to contact me for assistance with software configuration once you're ready.

Sorry, but the shop doesn't know what they are doing. You should have bought the cable...

If you get a cable and need help, let me know.

I have the cable but didn't get the app downloaded onto computer. I wasn't sure exactly what to do and didn't want to mess anything up.
