    Another thing, for all those programs you will need 32bit operating system in some cases even WinXP 32bit.

    So best use a VMware or Virtualbox.

    If this is the real deal I would pay for someone to help me out with this in the Bay Area California. Since my Trans is being built I would love to have a higher redline and shift point.

    Another option would be downloading "BMW Standard tools 2.11" and then update it with the SPDaten files.
    But that could shape into a lot of reading, try and error......
    damn i got a new DME MSD81 as well so probably the SPDaten i got from Vasillalov arent ok anymore , where can the V48.2 be downloaded?

    the file for the Alpina trans is for the 7 series E65 BMW . if you try to update the trans it cannot find it in SPdaten for E89-E90. You can force it but why was the 7 series file used and not the one for 3 series?

    and by the way this is the latest OEM transmission file for the E89-E90 from SPDaten V48.1A7606260.0da.zip

    as you can see the extension is .0da and not .0pa as the Alpina one Click here to enlarge

    Are you certain? The header of the file specifically calls out 6HP19TU. The instructions to flash the transmission are from an e65 forum, but should work for the e90 (same tools, same general architecture). The E65 uses the 6HP26 from the application chart I posted in the reference docs thread.

    As for my installation troubles, I have INPA and NCSExpert and EDIABAS from the vasillalov injector coding tutorial and I could not import any *.prg files from the EDIABAS\ECU folder into WinKFP. I am running 32 bit Windows XP.

    I have no idea what is going on, I get "Error 11" which looked to be a file permissions error after reading the WinKFP Users Guide, but I reset all permissions manually, and it still will not import. I may try to uninstall everything and then reinstall using the System Tools 2.11 installer and see if that helps.

    I do need to get the most recent daten files. Any suggestions on where to find those?

    According the the WinKFP User's Guide, 0PA files are "Data set files for program" and 0DA files are "Data set files for data". This is also why the files are about 30,000 lines different in size (when viewed with a text editor, about 1.5 MB when viewed in Windows Explorer ).

    The difference is most likely that the program files are the actual machine code that gets executed on the processor, and the data files are information the program reads as it executes about how to operate. So the 0PA files are the actual program, and the 0DA file are the configuration. That is what I am thinking based on past experiences with other processors.

    Makes me wonder if the Alpina firmware file (the 0PA file) has a 0DA file that is supposed to go with it.

    yes i am sure. a friend just tried it. You need the SPDaten files specifically those for E89 and E65. We are talking about coding the modules with new software not only modify what a current module can do. The whole SPDaten files is more than 10 gig . Basically when you ask to reprogram the Trans Winkpf looks automatically into the SPDaten files and gives you a result of the one you have . The one from Alpina does not pop up since its not recognized as a E89 file but its E65. You can force to run the Alpina and would be great if @Tomaz can ask his friend exactly how the job was done.

    I mean there is a torrent link to the complete daten files (11 GB!) and a mega.co.nz link to the e89 lite daten files in the thread you posted. Were you able to download the torrent, or did you download just the e89 lite daten files from the mega.co.nz direct download link. The torrent seem to be insufficiently seeded at the moment.

    Will check, you need anyway the 11gig file. So my friend franzzz registered so he will chime in , he tried but we need the alpina .da file that goes with it. Without you cant do anything. My friend updated the trans to latest file and the trans shifts much better now.

    Ok, I was thinking you needed the complete daten files to update code on any of the modules. I read that somewhere.

    That's what I was thinking concerning the 0DA file. It goes with a given 0PA file, and itself is useless alone. [EDIT] This is not true. You can overwrite the stock 0DA file with a different 0DA file to change the behavior of the transmission. What I should have said is the 0PA file is useless without the 0DA file that goes with it. Two different 0DA files that go with the same 0PA file should be able to be used interchangeably.

    I think the newer file you posted in post #83 is just an updated configuration file for the stock program file. It overwrites the stock configuration, but doe not change the stock program code on the mechatronics module. Think of it as the transmission's shifting maps.

    So is the file in post #83 what your friend used?

    Maybe @Tomaz can get his friend to read the 0DA file from his Alpina updated transmission.

    So we're missing 1 file now?

    Many thanks to those trying to get the Alpina file to run. Ran across this on their website, describing the B3 tranny:

    "The sports-automatic transmission with ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC offers shifting characteristics for every taste and situation. While the automatic mode shifts gently and comfortably, the transmission reveals its true sporting qualities in manual mode: using the shift buttons on the back of the steering wheel, the driver can up-shift in just a few hundred milliseconds with no perceptible loss in power."

    http://www.alpina-automobiles.com/en/models-alpina/b3-s-biturbo/powertrain.html

    I am not sure what this means, better than stock NLS?

    Then there's this:

    "
    The ALPINA SWITCH-TRONIC offers up shifting characteristics for every taste and situation. While the automatic mode shifts gently and comfortably, the transmission reveals its true sporting qualities in manual mode: using the shift buttons on the back of the steering wheel, the driver can up-shift in just a few hundred milliseconds with no perceptible loss in power. Sporty drivers especially appreciate the blip of the throttle which synchronises revs on manual down-shifts, meaning nothing unsettles the balance of the car when using the whole rev range. Efficiency and driving pleasure are beautifully united in the B3 S Bi-
    Turbo. Due to the massive torque, use of top gear on the autobahn is sufficient for almost all driving situations, and also exceedingly thrifty."

    Seems to imply some sort of rev matching feature on downshifts.

    http://www.topspeed.com/cars/alpina/2010-bmw-alpina-b3-s-biturbo-ar85863.html

    Point is perhaps a lot more going on here than just quicker shifts, hard to see through the marketing hype though.

    The Alpina TCM software is basically an aggressive, sport focused programming that is better suited for the higher power levels. The OEM TCM programming is for a car with 100 less HP & TQ and designed with "comfortable gearshifts" as the priority.

    Yes I understand that. If it implements rev matching and NLS then it is doing more than just TCU, it is talking to the motor.

    NLS isn't anything special, since the Alpina cars only come as 6AT (No Manual or DCT). The rev matching is worthwhile tho

    Sorry should have said more aggressive NLS. Point is I was not aware one could implement rev matching via ONLY mods to a TCU. Seems it requires some ability to send signal back to ECU (as would mod to NLS feature), and I am not sure that is part of the OEM architecture. If it is great.
