Hopefully smooth out the DCT while making it shift slightly faster for those of us with really old DCT software.

What's with the programming the cable I read about?

How is that done?

Evolve cables currently out there need a licence upgrade.
To enable the license we to enter a string via a specific software.
New cables leaving HQ as of this week have it pre loaded.

Will this dct software work if someone already has another engine tune? Such as ess? Will it erase the current engine tune or is it separate?

Yup, as HoodR$CH said, it's separate.

In my review, I took screenshots of the software interface. You'll notice that it only communicates with the DCT Siemens GS 40 DME, not your MSS60 DME.

Hey Sal, do you offer GTS DCT Flash for non evolve tune? I'm still running OEM software (240 that was updated by the dealer) but i just want my DCT flash.

Different companies do different things to entice customers. BPM is offering free servo tune with engine tune. Both companies are great at what they do, it just depends on which way the customer wants to go.
