DTC in DSC car?

Wikipedia:

E92 M3 ZCP Competition Package

[...]

- Modifications have been made to the computer governing the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) in M Dynamic Mode. It is reworked and renamed to “Dynamic Traction Control” (DTC) which allows for larger angles of slip in heavy cornering


My question:

Is it possible to reprogram my DSC to act like one in M3 with ZPC CP? I have '08 e90 M3.

Also, to the OP: I would not really rely on Wikipedia as being 100% accurate. The above statement you quoted is worded rather strangely and gives the impression that ZCP gives you totally different electronics. The calibration is merely different.

I understand that, it was just simply easier for me quote Wiki. I don't care how you call it, if only that thing works. Euro MDM looks like the right solution for me and I understand, that it is already there, only MDYNAMIC_MODE_USA has to be switched to "nicht_aktiv".

Any idea how much will that cost me and who can do it in Charlotte, NC area? I have supecharged car with ESS tuning cable - will that help?

Can shops like GMP Performance, which installed my supercharger do that?

Another question: Since in Europe they always had "non-American settings" do they have both in ZPC Competition Package? Better MDM plus DTC?

Any BMW coding shop can do it. (ask in the regional forums)
