What version software was loaded? I posted my version earlier. Do you have the same? You need the trans and ECU software upgrades.
I have come to the conclusion that this issue will NEVER be resolved. These reprograms get an almost satisfactory result. Sometimes the benefits decrease over time, and the trans reverts. My lease will be up in 5/10 and until then I will continue to keep my ears open on the X3. These trans problems are in addition to the outdated electronics. If you are happy with your X3, that's great. I have mixed feelings, and feel like I am settling on some issues.
