E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

650i N62 6HP26 Alpina software

Hi!

Does anyone have or know the software number for 2006 650i N62 6HP26 tranny?
I'd like to have gear indicator (d1, d2...) and quicker shifts.

Thanks!
Matt

If memory serves I think it's the Alpina B5 software your after for this but you'll loose the sport button and a couple of other bits (can't remember exactly) on the E63, I'm not sure where you'd get it from though either. I've not tried it myself, this is just something I remember reading some time ago but I think it may have been on the E60 forum so it might be worth throwing a post up there.
If you could find the B6 software that might be better, I just only remember the B5, be careful though as I also remember the wrong one can brick your car and that would make for a whole world of problems.

A valve kit from Sonnax might be a easier way to accomplish this, without trying to flash the EGS module?

Is the valve kit performance enhancing then? I always just thought it was replacement parts to bring the tolerances back to that from factory .
I must admit that the gear indicator in auto mode seems a bit of a gimmick but I guess it could be useful if experiencing problems, to be fair most of my driving is done in manual mode and I certainly never look at the dash to see what gear I'm in, I know what the gear is as I was the one that selected it , hell I don't even look at the rev counter I just go by the engine note.

Oh, thanks for your answers guys!
Throwing topic on E60 is a good idea.
Gear indicator isn't very usefull, I agree, but I just want it.
Wow, Sonnax solenoids... Can't find anything for 6hp.

Btw, I'm using 7564206 now and... I've got this feeling like this tranny could work better.

The Sonnax kits are here https://www.sonnax.com/transmission#kits, as I understand it (and others will need to confirm as I've not fitted one) you'll need to drop the tranny fluid, pan and mechatronic first so you can get the part numbers from the mech since there are two different zip kits for the 6hp26.
As HerbP says this may give you back what the tranny should be delivering but you'll still need some coding for the gear shifts so you could also ask the guys in the coding forum and programming forum to see if they can shed some light in it as well.

Now I can see them. Removing mechatronics isn't a problem for me. The problem is, they are 90usd each... Total is more then 6hp26 tranny is worth, I'm afraid...

The Mechatronic unit rarely fails, & it is only the electronic brain of the tranny. Rebuilding or modifying the valve body is cheap.
