Are you experiencing the same issues with the Alpine GTS tune as the OP. Afraid I don't have any advice but just curious as I am considering that GTS tune.

Yes, my car was flawless prior to flashing to the GTS tune. I think it's the cars DME software is not updated and thus not compatible with the GTS flash. But I need someone more experienced to confirm this.

I could not go into drive, reverse but neutral was ok. it was a very violent back and forth with the engine stalling out. I thought it was a battery issue, Rallye BMW told me to change the battery because they really dont think the GTS flash should've impacted anything....I asked SalM and he stated that his battery was new and it still happened to him. He never flashed back to GTS after.

I’d contact Alex and perhaps he can see what sort of errors you are getting and go from there. Let us know how it goes.

I highly recommend it . The issue were having is our ecu and tcu are on different software versions so its not communicating well. GTS flash is great and I highly recommend it.

Alex took a look, and my DME is 240. Seems like it's not a version issue. I got a bunch of codes back:

just got a new battery - but OP said it didn't resolve the issue....however, all of my codes are pointing to power management issue and i do get "increased discharge" warnings at times.

Do you want to try to flash to Euro DCT Tune? it's not as snappy and aggressive as GTS but it may work.

Turns out it is a DCT leak.

Im planning to order a Slon tranmission oil pan and hope the leak stops!

At the dealer now and they told me my oil pan is dry. There are no leaks!

I have a Slon pan that I purchased - may not need it now but my car is still bucking, violently shaking, and stalling. 15,000 miles 2011.75 m3 e90....what the f***
