SAT (S1-S7) w/o 2TB (Paddle Shifters) you ask?

Sure, why not. :D

Now, no more guessing what gear my tranny is in.

Nice! This is a really good one.

Please tell us how.

JEG23
EGS / 3000 Applikation / Sportschalter_alt (Not just Sportschalter) = aktiv / Werte=01
What about being able to see the tranny in normal driving mode?

Is it possible to get D1-D8 in normal drive mode rather than just the plain D?

With your proven expertise in 'finding these gems' - I'm sure you've nailed it.

Actually, that code was discovered by my Korean brother, mongsiri. All credit goes to him.

D1-D8 to go along with S1-S7 would be nice, but I did not see anything in EGS for that. Although since my car seldom operates in that girly mode, I admittedly did not give searching for that code its due diligence. :D

Shawn,
Nice one!! I just went out and did that one in just a few minutes. Thanks to mongsiri for expanding the state of the art and to you for passing it on.
That's the spirit of the forum. :thumbup:

What about displaying (S1-S7) in the HUD?
Is it at all possible?
It doesn't work, I checked twice. Year 2010/04. Automatic transmission, without paddles.
There is:
EGS / 3000 Applikation / Sportschalter_alt (Not just Sportschalter) = aktiv / Werte=01
but not works.:bawling:
Since this is 2TB, only without the Paddle Shifters, I would assume for this to work it requires ZSP OR ZMP, which are the requirements to order 2TB.

Do you have Sport or M-Sport?

Just tested this on a friend's 2012 F11 520 (not Sport or M-Sport, just a regular 520D)

.. and it works like a charm.

I changed both the settings under EGS / 3000 Applikation

Sportschalter_alt = aktiv
Sportschalter = aktiv

both settings were 'inakti'v by default, having changed the same… we now get S1-S7 instead of DS

Well, that is rather interesting. On my M-Sport, Sportschalter by default was nicht_aktiv, and when I changed it to aktiv, it did nothing. I changed it back to nicht_akt, and then changed Sportschalter_alt to aktiv, and got S1-S7. So, Sportschalter by itself did nothing, and Sportschalter_alt by itself gave me S1-S7.

I thought maybe then based on what you experienced that Sportschalter got it to the Sport / M-Sport equivalent, then Sportschalter_alt brought it to SAT. The problem with that though is I would have expected Sportschalter to default to aktiv on cars with Sport / M-Sport, but that isn't the case. So, this doesn't make much sense.

We need to test a few more non Sport Cars and Sport / M-Sport cars, and see if this behavior is at least consistent, where both are needed for non Sport, and only Sportschalter_alt is needed for Sport / M-Sport cars.

Just to add to this… on my own F10, i have the Sports Auto Box with the Paddle Shifters; and both values were already set to 'aktiv' by default. I do not have Sport or M-Sport either.

Really? You have 2TB without either ZSP OR ZMP? The U.S. Odering guide (for 2011) shows one of those is required. Maybe the U.K. was different, or it changed in 2012. :dunno:

In Europe we can order for example: SAT, sport seats, M steering wheel, M suspension, black headliner, EDC all alone, without ZSP or ZMP.
Also in 520d :)
Lucky you. So have you tried both on yours now to see if it works?

I changed both as above and get the S1-S7 instead of DS on my non sport 2011 528i.

Yes, but did you also try just Sportschalter_alt = aktiv first by itself?
