Hi All,

I am a new owner of a 18 M3 ZCP with DCT and is new to this forum. Still learning.

Recently just learned about TCU flash. Is there a general consensus as which coding, CS or GTS, is better for a stock ZCP M3? Looking to get a flash for DCT, Diff, MDM, and steering.

There seems to be different point of views as to whether CS or GTS DCT is better but it's hard to tell the cars are tuned or stock.

Also, is there a difference in getting a flash from Alex or Kubax86?

Thanks!

Flashes are the same. There is NO difference.
From my experience (I owned F82), GTS flash is better than CS flash that's why I recommend it. We can do of course CS flash if you prefer it.

In case of any questions feel free to contact me.

Suspension is only possible from CS.
GTS doesn't have adaptive suspension.

Is there an off the shelf program like Thor or Bootmod3 that will allow me to code CS EDC myself? I have a 18' F80 ZCP. From what I read from most people, the comfort setting is a little more forgiving with the CS EDC settings and the Sport and Sport+ are still just as firm at the standard ZCP, if not stiffer. That seems like a win win to me because I live in the North East and the roads are god awful. A softer comfort mode without giving up stiffness in Sport+ is ideal. Thanks!

Cs EDC is softer in sport+ than zcp.

It's a little off topic but I wanted 1 notch softer for my Base F80 and couldn't re-code the base dampers to get better. MP-HAS did the trick and got my comfort mode more comfy, but Sp+ still shakes my teeth when needed.

In hindsight I could have picked up a pair of used ZCP dampers and put the HAS on them (win-win).

Just get Bilstein B6s with Eibach pro kit and code in CS EDC and your world will be rocked!

I heard that's a great combo! B6 with Eibach v1, if you can find the old v1.
