And also I have Japanese spec m3 and was wonder if there is difference between eu, us, jp version on ecu.
Is it possible for me to have this software update?
You'll need the cable to determine the software version, or a laptop with INPA, or an Autologic. If you have service records from the dealer which indicate a software update, I can also tell you what software you have based on the integration level last applied to the car.
Regardless, the 240E update was a world wide thing. I have the 240E software for every region BMW has produced, so it's not a problem updating and tuning you on the version that is correct for your region. Recently have updated and then tuned cars in Germany, Australia, Japan, even Tahiti!
Have been shipping cables left and right with glowing results. Retuned a few cars that were previously tuned by others and I love the feedback I'm getting. The group buy for tuning is being launched soon, I am producing more cables today to keep up with the demand.
After I answer the backlog of 300 emails and make this batch of cables, I will figure out how to post the videos and logs from the track. My HD dashcam is not happy after yesterdays firmware update, so I have to figure out how to recover it.
I carefully reviewed the datalogs after the track and was nothing short of impressed. The car hit every vanos and ignition target I set which is great news. It means the calibration is working in harmony with the car.
