Thanks for the info, I understand we can watch dvds with a code change?

Can you code my car to the latest DCT software?

Yes, DVD in motion can be coded but not on an '08, unfortunately. You need CIC iDrive. CCC doesn't have the hardware to play DVDs.

In the coming weeks I'll have an ICOM and will be offering software updates. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for updates.

It's just different driving a E93, depending on what you use the car for, it's hard to say whether it's better or worse. The DCT function itself won't be different. But you can feel a +400 lb difference of the E93, and the turn-ins feel very different. The car doesn't "feel" slower however.

I would say the extra weight and turn-in and the wind blowing through your hair are the 3 biggest differences you can observe immediately, hence I believe you should drive the E93 DCT to get the exact feel of the car.

If one of these 3 difference really bothers you, then I would seriously reconsider buying a E92 in lieu of a E93.

Merlosso,

That looks awesome! I've been looking for someone to update my car for months. Please tell me you are going to offer this to others?
