Just got a 2007 X3 Crimson Red

Definitely let us know, i've felt the 1 to 2 shift has been rougher than it needs to be since I got the car. Would be gear if there was a fix of sorts.

US Spec 2007 X3 E83 Coding

Yup! Odd that I couldn't turn on the close option. Have to get it back to my buddy to try again.

I was also told the 2004 does not have the triple blink flasher option.
