Thanks again will give him a ring once I have the cable.

Hi ANTHONYR,
i live in the US and i have a 2015 M4 (F83) completely stock with the exception of CF parts. Would this upgrade work on my car or does it have to be the CP? also do you think your friend would be able to do the upgrade for me if applicable and if so how much is it in US DOLLARS? Thanks in advance for your help on this.

Hey man, no it does not need to be a CP, as mine isn't. Contact Kurai as he is the man who does the magic

Post back your thoughts on the updates. Are you going to Henry or having it done remotely?
Mine is November 2014 and running original software. It's a bit hairy getting the power down and handling is fidgety on uneven roads. Doesn't feel anywhere near as stable as my E60 M5 did at higher speeds. Still a great car though. Just a bit worried about software updates effecting warranty.

I really would recommend it. Mines a late 2014 and got it done a couple of months ago, feels a whole lot better

I was worried about my warranty too, my M4 is only 4 months old! Spoke to Henry about it and he confirmed that being OEM software your not doing g anything aftermarket. I'm taking my M4 in for a checkup next week so will find out if they deem.it out of warranty!

I can't imagine that your dealer will say anything other than it would invalidate the warranty of any item that is altered by the GTS tune.
Of course it would be great if they say its fine, even better if they would code it for you....but I can't see it.

None of the people I've flashed have had any warranty issues (including myself) with the dealer (after doing around 100 or so F8x cars already). Just don't mention it to them.

After the flash, there will be no errors in the iDrive so they won't need to check anything. The software was built for the same hardware as the M4 GTS so it's 100% compatible.

On another note, the workers there won't really know what the GTS software looks like.

This just became the best option for a tune for my needs.
So to be a a bit clearer, this offers:
better DCT behavior
steering feel
throttle response
differential programming
etc, etc...basically an update.
How about?
1-any Hp and and torque bump
2-burbles for non comp cars
3-gts cold start??

For a final question, I'm new at this.. the GTS is upgraded with water injection, why don't you need to upgrade your car with water injection so this software can work?

Lets be clear, flashing the GTS software puts your warranty at risk.
Sure for day to day warranty work a dealer isn't going to look to see what software version you are running...but if your engine/transmission lets go and they spot the anomaly then BMW would have every right to cancel the warranty on all parts affected by the GTS tune.
Owners should be aware of that and be content to take that risk.

Yep and the late cars communicate direct with Germany once the Key is in the dealership, logging loads. I found this out thorough a mate who had a gearbox problem, took it in to *********'s (it did not mater which dealership) once Germany got involved as dealer did not have a clue (as usual) they found changes. He is still waiting for an outcome.
No name no pack drill.

As the GTS runs passive KW coil overs I doubt the GTS flash will do anything to attend to those issues which are spring/damper related.

I only want the standard latest BMW software not GTS, well maybe the GTS gearbox software but not sure yet.
I thought the latest cars still had the same springs/dampers as the first 2014 cars.

When the M3 got its first LCI both the M3 and M4 got different rear dampers (same as the CP) September 2015 onwards.

Not sure if that affects the software level you can flash to at the dealer, I'm sure it won't but your dealer will tell you.

My LCI 2016 M3 has been transformed with a flash to the latest software + MP HAS.

For a final question, I'm new at this.. the GTS is upgraded with water injection, why don't you need to upgrade your car with water injection so this software can work?
✅ M4 GTS DCT Performance Flash - (MASSIVELY reduced kangaroo gear changes especially in sports and sports+ modes). Big difference putting the power down more! Also changes the tone of your exhaust to sound sportier and deeper on stock untuned engine. On competition pack cars and custom burble remapped tuned cars, your burbles will change to match the M4 GTS burbles.
✅ GTS Electronic Power Steering *Stiffens steering for better control/handling with more advanced power assist, especially during hydroplanning.
✅ GTS/ZCP Traction Control *More slip in MDM before power is cut and allows better traction control settings, improved drifting characteristics.
✅ GTS Rear Differential *Improved take off from the line, more control, better cornering. Straight line launch control and take off.

You can put the power down more with the flash, the note of the exhaust will sound sportier, deeper. However, it is not an engine update. This works for both stock and already engine remapped F8x cars.

Burbles and BHP increase can be achieved via a custom tuner.

I'm a bit confused here... How does flashing the gearbox software ( GTS DCT flash) alter the exhaust note ? I have always assumed this is directly related to the engine tune - which cannot be flashed unless the ECU has been unlocked already (?)
