DCT CS (beta) flash from BM3. Anyone has feedback?

I'm really wanting to try this on my car, but reading thru some of the threads here, it's apparent there are mixed reviews including some issues with downshifting etc.

Can anyone who's tried it give me any feedback here?

According to their note map notes, up to < 2018 use GTS DCT flash and > 2018 use the CS DTC Flash

yep, i know.

I've read folks not liking the DCT flash on 2019+ S55 cars due several issues, but what I'm asking is if anyone has the CS in their 2019/2020 cars and how they like it, if there are any issues etc

yeah, good info.

But I already have BM3 and don't really wanna play with Thor, eventhough I hear they are great.

Anyone had the "drive moderately" come up on dash after cs BM3 flash? My trans works fine, I just lose gear display on dash, and the warning. No codes.

Try the GTS software to see if the error goes away.

Yep, just did - and no errors. The BM3 page does say the CS flash is beta, so I'm not having a sook. Only complaint of GTS over CS is it wants to get into 7th at 60kph! The CS seemed really good, I was just concerned about the warning. Ticket logged with PTF.
