I have a 2011 E90, but got my ECU reflash by the dealer last year for some work done on my fuel pump... Does it mean I can't flash it?
That's old information prior to software numbers being traced through updated DATENs.

Right now, the only limitation is that cars produced 2/29/2012 or newer requires the FSC from the dealer.

However, if all you need to do is fix surging issues, you can update your DME with the last OEM software version with no issues.

Is there any other way to obtain the FSC or is it really dealer only?

As long as your car is 02/28/2012 or older, you can have it flashed without BMW involvement.

Does anyone live in Massachusetts and have the PPK flash without dealer involvement? We have a customer whose having inspection issues due to communication with the DME, and the station is telling them their software number doesn't match their VIN. Evidently their system is setup to communicate directly with BMW to determine the expected software number.

Aside from this issue, the PPK was successfully installed and runs as advertised. Also, any/all OBD port readers successfully communicates with the DME.

HOLY SHIT!

No help here but I believe it. MA went batshit crazy last year with the car inspection process.

For example if a Jeep Wrangler is lifted more than 2" or has 2" taller tires, it will fail inspection. Every inspection bay has 5 video cameras that record each inspection and pipe it directly the MA DOT (or whatever the dept. name is). Crazy stuff.

Sounds like the system was contracted to a 3rd party but still the same result. Also the system compiles data from other similar cars, so it may get more cumbersome as more people get inspected.

Some articles on it.
