In other words, apart from convenience and custom transmission flashing, what are you doing differently than people already do with esys?
Oh sorry, I misunderstood your question. Maybe lost in translation. No, DCT and Dynamic Package are flashing/coding of OEM variants.

The execution is different, but the output is the same. This difference allows many advantages.

- Intuitive interface
- Itís simply easy, everybody can work with it and you donít have to be a coder
- Reliable and safe
- Change very quickly between our different maps
- If you lost your tune, you can renew it.
- and many more

You can buy our dynamic Package. Series Map = Euro MDM

If you buy it, you also get the Clubsport and Road&Track maps.

Additional information about our maps.



FULL FLASH Package with Road&Track and Clubsport Map consists of:

⚡️ DCT: improved gear changes, optimized clutch pressures
⚡️ DSC: more traction, better control and an advanced MDM Mode
⚡️ LSD: better cornering, more sensitive torque management
⚡️ Steering: improved steering wheel feel.

Can you included CS or ZCP EDC coding?
Would this be difficult to do?
It would make it a complete product.

@THOR_Flasher

I have received the obd dongle, purchased the Full flash app through Apple store with receipt, but the app is still locked once I connect to the dongle and get the car connected confirmation message

My car details are present in the vehicle screen

Please advise if I'm doing something wrong here

Order ID MSGMMKT955

Edit - got in contact with Thor over Facebook and they sorted the issue in a day

If I buy this now and the EDC coding capability is added later, would I have to pay anything extra or would I be able to have that functionality as well? Iím ready to order this as long as the dynamic package would eventually include EDC coding if that ever becomes possible.

Just coded both packages, dct and dynamic, on my comp pack

Went with the cs (road and track) codings for all - trans, steering, diff, mdm

Trans flash took about 8 mins, the 3 dynamic modules around 15 mins

Straight off bat I could tell how much smoother trans is, no more jerkiness coasting to a stop when the car downshifts 3-2 or 2-1 at idle rpm, even upshifts feel smoother

Steering in sport actually feels proper now, I refused to use it because the weighting felt noticeably artificial right off centre, but it's sorted

Mdm, finally I have some slip and the power doesn't cut out at slightest hint of throttle, can actually go deep into throttle with steering lock on and the rear will step out a little and without the power being abruptly cut

All up, well worth the cost

Sure you can remote code with a laptop etc, but I just prefer doing this stuff myself in my own time and plus I can mix and match the diff codings without having to setup repeat remote sessions

We try to include the CS EDC coding. Should be this function available, you get it with an update for free.

I don't think so, it flashed them all under dynamic

Tbh I don't think you want to mix and match these modules, they'll work best together

Hi Guys,

thereís a lot going on at THOR. As you might have noticed, we released our update v1.4 in the last week with some usability optimizations and the launch of our THOR dealer program. (Tuners welcome ☺ - please contact us by mail office@thorflasher.com)

Standing still is a step backwards: we look to the future! At the moment, we are working on following additions:
- CS-EDC Coding (M3/M4)
- roll out our Android Version
- support of M2 Competition

Estimated release our Android Version will be end of February. We got a lot of mails and messages about EDC-Coding. Currently we need a few more weeks for internal testing before we start with a wider beta group of M3 and M4.

And for all those who do not know THOR yet, a short introduction.

⚡THOR - The M Flasher ⚡

2 Different Maps Road&Track (CS) and Clubsport (GTS). Flash how often you want and feel the difference between Stock, GTS and CS factory maps.
🏁 DCT (dual-clutch transmission): improved gear changes, optimized clutch pressures, sharper rev. matching and removal of the harsh jockeying feel from the transmission.
🏁 DSC (dynamic stability control): more traction, better control and an advanced MDM Mode
🏁 LSD (limited slip differential): better cornering, more sensitive torque management.
🏁 EPS (electronic power steering): improved steering wheel feel (feels proper)

THOR highlights
⚡faster and smoother shifts
⚡improved MDM Mode
⚡change how often you want between stock, GTS or CS maps
⚡earlier upshift in comfort mode (eco tune)
⚡more traction
⚡improved clutch pressures
⚡update safety
⚡Ideal for vehicles with enhanced engine performance.
⚡Modified torque limiters.

To use THOR Ė the M Flasher, youíll need an OBD II WiFi adapter. THOR is compatible only with the THOR OBD II WiFi adapter.

Still....I do wish we could individually select which modules to flash instead of forcing us to flash all three at once.
The way App is currently setup is all three modules (EPS DSC LSD) or nothing 🤨

+1 to this. This isnít just for a personal preference, but for technical reasons too. I have a base model M3, which has different dampers than the comp pack-up. I want a product with individual setting control so just in case I donít like how the CS EDC works on my dampers, which it wasnít designed for, that I can still change the other settings and didnít waste my money on a product with compromises that I might end up not using. Since EDC support is coming in the future, this is a must have feature in my opinion, unless you want to alienate all base M3 customers, which wouldnt be a smart business decision.

Iím really excited for this product, but I really think individual setting control should be at the top of your features list. Being a software developer myself, I canít imagine it being that difficult to implement. You already did the hard part by implementing everything altogether. Refactoring code and adding some UI elements for each setting should be easy.

Best of luck, and I hope to buy your product once this feature is implemented.

+1. Well said.

The Thor App and the process is Great and works flawlessly every time. Amazing App.

It's Just some people don't want to flash all 3 modules.
Some just want to flash improved DSC mode. Some just want to flash improved power steering.
And some just want to flash improved LSD.
Right now, the options are all or nothing.
🤞🤞🤞
