You mean the GTS tune?

I believe Alex @ AlpineMSS is able to do it remotely

This is the same process that e90 335i dct users use, as well as alpina auto tunes. You can diy for free. Ive done it myself and for others in the past. It's straightforward

How did you go with the DCT tune? I'm also Perth based and thinking of doing the same.

Just came across a group buy for Alex's tune (https://www.m3post.com/forums/showth...6#post24428766), have put in my interest to see if I can join that for the Stage 2 tune and do it myself.

I ordered mine yesterday with that group buy and added his dct tune as well.

I've read that if the car always start in D2 then the DCT tune has already been flashed? Mine does that. I've only owned it for 2 months and it came with full Akrapovic exhaust so not sure what the previous owner flashed it with as I purchased it from a dealer.

I believe the Euro dct tune does that from the factory. With you being in Australia, that may be the case with yours. I would suggest that you reach out to Alex to inquire. Alex@alpinemss.com

I am sure he could answer that for you.

These resellers are flashing software that is available for free. It's your money...

Thanks to Aus335iguy, I managed to do it myself by reading up a couple of other threads. Here are the steps I followed:

Grab the BMW standard tools/files from: https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1204192

To check part numbers: https://www.e90post.com/forums/showt...8#post18933848 (step 5)

Set up WINKFP options like so: (I kept programming voltage and test checksum enabled by default)

To check your DCT flash history:
  1. Open Winkfp
  2. Comfort mode
  3. Choose Zusb
  4. Select GS40
  5. Enter Vin
  6. Select Done
  7. Select Expert mode
  8. Answer no/cancel to the pop up
  9. Select done
  10. Select special
  11. Select read UIF

To flash GTS DCT: https://www.m3post.com/forums/showpo...02&postcount=3 (select 7848442 instead of 7845773 to flash latest version)

My HW-NR was 7642021 and it flashed to 7848442 without problems. My DCT flash history showed it was last flashed in 2015 (likely by BMW dealer) and my ECU was updated to E89X-14-11-501. I also had my 5A CTEK battery charger plugged in to be safe as my battery is still from factory (dated week 42, 2010) and I'm in the process of replacing it.

You now have a GTS gearbox...90msec shifts and adjustable launch control, all for free. Feels good ?
The money you just saved will help pay for the tyres you'll burn through

Haven't noticed much difference so far apart from maybe snappier gear changes. I still bought the Alpine stage 2 tune for other goodies ;-) Inc cold start delete, firmer steering, speed limiter delete and fuel mapping / tunes

I think I found another difference. Every since flashing the GTS DCT I've lost my stop-start lol at lights engine turns off for less than a second before turning back on and in neutral. Is there coding I can do to disable stop-start? prefer not to press the button each time I want to start the car to disable it for the journey. Otherwise I'll flash back to stock DCT

edit: I'll get Alpine to provide me with a tune with it disabled, that should be possible I think.

Yes, he can code the change for you. He would have to do it via remote coding, but not a tune file I believe. If you have Bimmergeeks Protool you should be able to code it yourself.

did more searching and found I can code it by changing MSA_MEMORY in module IHK for it to remember the switch setting.

Most coding and flashing of modules can be done for free with little effort and research.

Use ncs dummy for translations, the forums that try to get specific with each line to change in modules is tricky because it's different for different years.
