Do you think you'll be able to solve the 2018 March OEM software update?

Does this flash all modules in one flash?
Or can it be done separately to reduce load on battery?

Can you elaborate what went wrong?

I recently bought the Thor adapter and got the Dynamic package from the app.

The first thing I noticed is that it said my car was a M3 LCI, however I have a M3 ZCP. I ignored this, since it would be over-writing the modules anyway. Did anyone else have this issue?

Flash was completely successfully, no issues there.

I loaded the R&T/GTS modules. The first thing I noticed is that with MDM on, its like driving with TCS off. Amazing... no intervention. I didnt really push it too too hard (didnt break back end out) but I also never saw the TCS light come on at all, which I'm very used to seeing nearly over ever bump or accelerating out of every turn. Back end seems to rotate more, and more predictably. Exactly what I was looking to happen for my upcoming Watkins Glen event in August.

Steering definitely feels good too. I didnt drive my car for nearly a day before flashing (saturday morning), and would probably have to drive them back to back to notice a difference.

I have 6 MT so I cant comment on shifting.

So far very pleased with the setup.

I see that Thor is compatible with other software. Has anyone successfully used it for datalogging in a different app or laptop pc?

Lastly, are the GTS "modes" active regardless of which engine/suspension/steering mode the car is on? Like if I'm driving in stealth mode efficient, am I still getting the aggressive differential programming? Or is that only tied to sport / sport plus?

All in all, very happy wit the purchase. Highly recommended.

Can't remember but all is working now. Haven't needed to touch it since my flash was successful.

How long does it take to flash ?
Does it do all modules at same time or can it be split up?
Charger recommended?

I think 20 mins for all modules. Charger definitely recommended. I would leave a CTEK plugged in overnight then start the process in the morning with a full battery.

Has anyone used this with a ODB WiFi adapter that isn't from Thor? Every app/service seems to need their own adapter these days, despite the protocol being the same.

On iOS you need the THOR WiFi or MHD WiFi adapter. If you flash your vehicle with android, THOR works with an BimmerGeeks Pro Cable as well.

With our next update we will also support ethernet. This will significantly reduce flash times.

Thanks for the reply. So other OBD WiFi adapters (or BT) won't work?

I've tried everything to get this to work with the MHD dongle. The Thor app cannot find it. MHD has no problem connecting.

I purchased this yesterday and flashed my car with the CS (Road&Track) software for everything. Mine is a 2016 Competition Package DCT car. It feels much better. I'm curious now what the difference will be with the GTS (ClubSport) software. I plan on playing with it myself but was wondering what most people settle on? CS or GTS?

My plan was GTS across the board. Hopefully flashing CS ABS and EDC once I get the MP HAS on.

Is the GTS just a more extreme version? I'm not sure what the differences are supposed to be? I've only had an M3 for a couple weeks so I've got a lot to learn.
