So since I will be doing this mod, I ordered Bimmerlabs cable! I will test it and see if it can read modules which ebay cable was unable to. I doubt that it will be any better, but at least I supported Bimmerlabs!

According to people who know things (Including the guys who run bimmerlabs), the tune for all x30i cars is identical.

The only changes are not in the software: Euro IAT/Euro Airbox in some and different intakes/exhausts. There's also the option that some cars were underrated/overrated for the power that they actually made

hey guys - just checking in because I've been busy and haven't been able to respond to the deluge of daily emails. I'm limiting the amount of custom tuning because I can realistically only do one at a time, and right now I'm working hard on a fine-tuned baseline for N52 swaps into other cars.

I haven't gone back and read all the pages of this thread in a while - has anyone had any problems with the newer Bimmergeeks cables? I've had some issues flashing with a few cables and I think it might be a firmware bug. I know the owner so I can communicate that to him if it's the case and get it fixed, but it's hard to tell if these are one-off problems or if it's more common. BTW, Bimmerlabs doesn't sell or profit off the cables at all - the "store" is just for your convenience.

They are sending me a replacement cable. The one I got seemed dead. Would not light up when plugged in. They had me try in other vehicles and the same result, so another one is coming.

Bit frustrating as I'm in Canada and it will take 2 1/2 weeks to get here, but happy they responded on Good Friday (holiday up here) and are replacing it hassle free.

Just noticed E92William is banned. I looked through his post history and couldn't see any reason why. Shit like this is why I basically stopped posting here...

I keep getting this error when ever I try to flash my GM912 Transmission on my 328i 2009. This is the only stock file available. I am getting panic, the engine runs and start, but the transmission shift or work! I am using a K + DCAN cable. Should I change the settings on the cable? Is it a port issue? I was able to reflash the ENGINE/ECU with the 330i engine tune. It worked! The issue is the TCU!!!!!

That's a stock GM trans calibration. It's not a "tune". What cable do you have?
