GTS Flash

I had my M4 flashed with the GTS performance flash:

? 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 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.

The drive will be extremely optimised comparable to the M4 GTS as it's OEM software ??
It feels much smoother and responsive.
All done by a fellow M4 owner ?

Here are the two cars:

Hey mate, I paid £200 for the whole GTS performance flash. Your car would not have it as it comes on the GTS as standard.
You can speak to Henry on 07985 232591, mention that he had recently done Anthony's car

I think this has been mentioned a few times in the last few months - more so on m3cutters.
These guys typically do the upgrade remotely so no need to drive anywhere to get it done.


The only thing that puts me off is the stiffer steering. I find its stiff enough even in Comfort!!!


If the dealer did a software upgrade of some sort to your car, would it blow away this GTS software upgrade?

I did ask the question as my car is going in to BMW tomorrow, he said he will reinstall free of charge if it has been overwritten

Henry sorted my M4 CP out too, the GTS flash is incredible. Also apparently unlocks more power as in the hp / torque displays, some have said it goes over 450PS. More burble, but with competition pack a lot of them were already there, but biggest difference by far is that kangaroo/lurching in first gear. Rarely happens at all now.

Hey Peeps,

I had my GTS performance flash done by Henry (07985 232591) remotely. He updated my iDrive to Version 6 too. He also stuck in a few other fancy bits like Fold mirrors on Lock, DVD in motion, Play ringtone, Alarm beeps. Door lights in reverse. He is a wiz and has loads of features that he can activate on M cars. Give him a shout if interested. I have had my M4 LCI for 4 months im a daily user and it feels like a different animal now!

You need a ODB cable. I got mine from here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Hi John, You will be connected from your laptop to the car via the ODB cable. You will need a wireless connection to your laptop with a strong internet connection. Henry offers 121 or remote flashes so you will need to speak to him and arrange what works best for you
