Thanks for feedback. Today I try to FDL-Code the EGS but I can't read the current coding from this modul. There is no green dot in the list of EGS (CAFD Line is missing). Do you have an idea?

CAF zu SWE ermitteln

If you have created the new CAFD you should be able to code or FDL code.

Hey thanks a lot for information. Which steps have I to do to "CAF zu SWE ermitteln" I have never done this.

I hope that you can help me.

Edit:
I found a instruction ... and it works thanks a lot for your help. Now I could code the EGS with 2TB. But unfortunately the paddles don't work. Tomorrow I will chef if the wire to the FEM is installed or not.

Now I really don't know why the paddles didn't work.

I change 205 to 2TB in VO write new VO to the car and code EGS / Kombi and ICM.

Is it nessacary to code FEM_Body too?

In the past I retrofitted a lot at my F20 (609 ...) but I'm not really a specialist and I'm verry happy of the frindy support here in the forum.

Have a nice sunday ;-)

Can sport automatic be coded with BimmerCode?

does anyone know if the gearstick is plug and play? i bought one on eBay off a breakers, from RHD and it won't work when i plugged it in and screwed it down. cam up with unable to change transmission error on dash. it also feels like it's maybe from a lad as the ergonomics of it feel wrong. my old car had the sports transmission, same gearstick and it felt different ergonomically.

No. I just know how to do it with E-sys. I never use phone apps.

I have been asking this question for literally four months and have never gotten a response.

I did the FDL coding for this quite a while back. Tomorrow I am VO coding EBT. Is it worth VO coding the gearbox mod, or not necessary?

EBT has nothing to do with gearbox.

Yes I know that. I will re-phrase -

As I have my laptop connected (doing the EBT), is it worth VO coding the gearbox mod. OR as I have already FDL coded it with the options below, is there no point?

EGS/3000 Applikation -> Sportschalter_alt -> aktiv
EGS/3000 Applikation -> Sportschalter -> aktiv
EGS/3000 Applikation -> LC -> aktiv

FDL coding can accomplish everything and have same result as VO coding.

I use VO coding when adding or removing factory options as well as let E-sys figure out the details and do the work.

If already coded, there is no advantage to re-doing other than practice.

I never write FA changes to VCM, so VO appears factory at dealership.

Hi All,

Some questions from my end.
I have an F30 (2016) with the automatic transmition (not the sport one) and I DO NOT have the paddles! But I have Sport+ already enabled in my car from the manufacturer without 2TB in my FA.

Now. I am in the process of adding myself the Paddles but I was thinking to enable the Sport Transmition before paddles.

So if I have read through the thread correctly, I wont need to do any FA/VO coding and only do FDL coding:
EGS/3000 Applikation -> Sportschalter_alt -> aktiv
EGS/3000 Applikation -> Sportschalter -> aktiv
EGS/3000 Applikation -> LC -> aktiv

And once I install the paddles I will also have to add: FEM_BODY => PADDLES_VERBAUT = aktiv

My questions:
1. I do not have the 2TB. I looked through my FA and I have the ​205 instead of 2TB. Should I add it as I already have Sport+?

2. If I add the Sport transition is there any change of doing any mechanical damage or long term harm? or is it just a software change?

3. My BMW is a diesel one. Not sure if makes any difference.

Thanks

just saw this. I don't know the true answer, but I can try. I don't think that it can be done via Bimmercode. I don't use the app myself. Not that I don't want to, just that I don't have it. 2TB needs to be VO Coded and Bimmercode only does FDL. I could be wrong though.

Thanks for the response. BimmerCode does have an Expert Mode which is where I was thinking it could be possible. Not saying it can, just saying I believe you can create and alter actual code in Expert Mode. Just not sure if anyone has tried or confirmed one way or the other...

It could be done in Expert Mode, but you would have to know changes that E-sys makes for you with VO coding.

I kind of want to buy the interface just to mess with it now!

Glad I found this thread. No more worrying about my engine blowing up when it should just change the gear already! Always hated how it likes to rev for a long time before shifting but now it’s so smooth it feels like a normal car.
