    I was playing around with NCS expert and winkftp and inpa trying to get rid of a airbag light and updating all my ecu's with a newer sp-daten. Long story short, i managed to get rid of the lights and update the majority of my ecus, there were a couple that did fail at the end with errors. When i...

    Hello all, I recently picked up a '04 325iT with the Steptronic. The touring was purchased from New Country Mercedes Benz in Hartford, CT; the dealer deemed it too nice for the auctions, so it underwent presale inspection and maintenance, performed by the BMW dealership owned by the same parent...

    Hello, This is my first post here, hopefully I posted under the right category. So a few months ago I got a BMW E46 320d Touring Automatic with 355k km (220k miles) for my 18th birthday. It ran fine for a couple of days then the turbo died, leading to a diesel runaway. The engine was totaled...

    Hey all, First forum post here for a little issue that I've seen a few threads about, but wanted to share my story for. A bit about myself and my car, I'm a 25 year old driver of a 2011 335d located in Maryland. The car has had its fair share of work done to it emissions-wise (let's not get...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello, everyone! This is my first time posting, though I've been following this forum since I first got my F30. Everyone on here is so helpful and knowledgeable, so I thought I could take advantage of that! I haven't really been able to find a straight answer to my question, so I apologize if...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2011 328i automatic with steptronic. I have almost always driven the car in manual mode. This morning, I put the car in manual mode as always and before I got to the end of the street, the computer put it back in D. I looked down and the shifter was still to the left and should have...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am thinking to buy a pre-owned 2011 or 2012 328i Coupe/Conv. and had some questions... -If I get a convertible, what are some pros and cons for driving a convertible? - How can I use the STEPTRONIC if the 328i doesnt have paddle shifters? - Why doesn't the 2011 and/or 2012 328i Coupe come w/...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello fellow enthusiasts. I have a question to ponder on. My E39 has recently begun a new noise and i cant seem to figure out what it is. Here is a video with the noise audible. It comes when the trans is in Drive or Reverse. Sometimes when standing in park. Please let me know what it is if you...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    All: While I have seen some forums that cover this for other models, I was hoping one of you may have this exact issue and can lend some insight. I noticed yesterday that my vehicle will not go into DS mode but rather stays only in D. It will shift into Manual up and down when brought over to...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Jeesh I can't catch a break with these codes that keep poping up! I have a DSC light that won't turn off (just as a preface). But rarely while driving along, my automatic transmission light will turn on and I'll lose my cruse control. Then I'll pull over to turn off the car (like the manual...

  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So the 2010 328i I'm getting ready to buy has an automatic transmission. These may seem like simple questions, but I reviewed the BMW website and can't definitively find the answers. Here goes: 1) Is the standard automatic transmission = Steptronic? Or is Steptonic an upgrade over the...

    I have a 2000 323ci 153k with an steptronic automatic Transmission GM built. I'm having a couple of issues with my tranny. First off, I live in Minnesota and it has been cold here and averaging 15 degree's out side. I'm not sure if the issues are because of cold. First Problem, when the car is...
  16. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I have a 2000 740i and I'm digging into a steptronic issue. Since I bought the car (recently) I have only been able to use Drive on the shifter. When I kick the shifter to the left, nothing happens... No red M light and nothing on the dash (just D). When I look under the wood shift plate, I...

  18. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I always assumed that with all the hydraulics and servos, the SMG transmission was heavier than either the manual or the Steptronic. Does anyone know the actual differences? I had a 328i Coupe with the Steptronic (leased - just turned it in after buying my second 330Ci SMG used from a private...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    From what I've read both Dinan and ESS programs will allow driver to stay in 2nd gear and above without shifting automatically...but what about 1st gear? I need to be able to stay in whatever gear I choose. :( Asking because I am a very experienced autocrosser (24 years) and this past weekend...
  20. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have recently been interested in converting my 98 540i to have the steptronic option. I have all of the needed parts and information about the wiring to the shifter assembly, but I got stuck at the wiring to the EGS. I understand that you're supposed to move the wires on the middle connector...
