i thought Euro DCT is different from GTS DCT
even evolve stated they offered 2 variations

So does the Euro DCT speed up the shifts? Harder and faster?

I'd like that....

The DCT transmission software offered here does firm up shifts. Not sure why others are stating otherwise....

This is getting rather confusing..

I was under the impression that the OP was talking about a DCT s/w from the almighty M3 GTS (Which of course is a EURO ver. since the M3 GTS was not brought state side) and that it supposedly has improved / different shifting characterisitics with the DCT s/w from our regular M3s?

I drive a RHD M3 with EURO s/w from factory (My car already starts in D2 and remembers my S settings)... Can anyone confirm that this GTS DCT s/w is in fact a more aggressive s/w than say if I went for an upgrade to the most up-to-date EURO DCT s/w for regular M3s from the dealer?

The software was sold to me as GTS software. You should email Alex to confirm this is what you would be purchasing as well. Another poster claims this is simply "Euro" DCT software, however, unless he also purchased it from Alex and confirmed that it is in fact only "Euro DCT" from another source, I'm not sure how credible his claim is.

Alex just flashed my car with the GTS DCT software, and according to him, there is the Euro DCT program, and then there's the GTS program, they are different.

S5 mode now shifts very fast and kind of violent, I had to resort to S4 on the drive back from L.A.

Will you feel a difference? Heck yeah, for $60 it's probably the cheapest mod that yields a huge difference.

Hey, I generally try to stay away from posting on the forums because everyone on some level has something to say, and you have supposed experts who ruin my day all the time.

The GTS software is not available in the traditional fashion everyone is updating or changing their flash to.

I can assure you there is 4 DCT flashes out there

US spec
Euro Spec starts in S
Euro Spec starts in D2
GTS DCT

You simply tell me what you want, and I do it for you. The GTS file is very rare, but I have been offering it for sometime now, I never ever ask a customer to post a review, that is why you never hear from me, and the second I open my mouth on the forums I have people questioning and attacking me, and people asking me where I got it from. It is not available in the general manner you guys think, and that is why you see people charging upwards of $1000 for it.

You can ask the OP, when he made this post, I thanked him for the feedback, but in a joking manner I told him "oh no you just caused me a very big headache, and pissed off a lot other vendors." You can ask him.

Anyways, I require you purchase coding as that is what I offer, and as an option, you can purchase flashes from me, such as DCT updates, now to you guys the DCT might seem like it's the world, to me it is a service I offer to you at a very reasonable price. Keep in mind guys, I have no other job, this is my living and my full time job, I'm getting loads of emails arguing prices with me, saying I do not want coding, I do not understand how much cheaper I can offer it, it takes time, energy and overhead costs.

Bottom line, there is no gimmicks here.

This is my response, and only response, I hope it helps guys.

Awesome. Thanks for the clarification. Sorry, folks. Everything I had read said it was just the Euro DCT software. Keep up the hard work, Alex.

Does the GTS software shift from 1st gear to 2nd gear automatically in S mode?

Sensi, I did more driving today, and the bottom line is GTS program just engages the clutches faster than US program doesn't matter which s mode you are in. GTS Sx is just faster than US Sx mode. You really have to experience it and you'll know @ $60 the reflash really is a no brainer.
