You may want to contact Alex @ Alpine. I heard heís able to get people out of coding pickles. You could probably find his info on the board. Good luck!

There is a good thread about how to do it (and some other related stuff as well). But I won't post the link here out of respect for this thread....

Trying to change settings but I can’t. Keep asking for voucher code that I don’t remember getting. Anyone has this issue?

You need to email your vin to them and they will send you your voucher code. Rather annoying that when they switched to vouchers the prior customers didn't automatically transfer.

Application worked fine for some time but now I unable to use it at all due to "Not supported vehicle" message.
Thor support is totally useless. I sent three emails in december without any response.
For now I just lost my money.

Thor application currently doesn't work on many M2/M3/M4. They know about this problem but Thor support is useless.

Here is confirmation from Thor:





Im still unable to use this app. They just confirmed that there is a problem with THOR app and nothing happend. Be aware before you pay.

Did you/dealer update your car's software though? Its a known issue for ECU flashes, Thor etc

Still hasn't responded to my 4 emails. Unbelievable how they are willing to just take someone's money and not refund it after their product is not compatible. They told me my 2020 M4 works before I paid for it. This was through Instagram DM.

Anyways thankfully I was able to get the GTS stuff coded by kubax86 .

They stopped responding to almost all support messages. Application still doesn't work on many cars.
Here is alternative contact:

I bought and used Thor back in November when I purchased my F80 ZCP 6-spd. I wanted to flash the GTS settings and instead got the F87 comp settings. I didn't know until Kubax86 noticed it when he was coding the CS EDC and a few other features. He was able to fix it but be warned that it may not be flashing what you think it is.

This is what I was warning everyone about in July when I sent them 10 emails and never responded to me. I have since moved on from them to XHP which is light years better than Thor GTS/CS

I have been thinking the same thing myself after all of this churn lately. I also flashed Thor on my ZCP 6MT without issue last Fall to the GTS settings - bought it when it was on sale. My M3 has been a garage queen mostly the last few months due to the winter weather so I have been unable to do a thorough road test to test the new settings flashed by Thor.

I recently updated my E-Sys/ISTA+ suite of tools and flashed the CS EDC since Thor does not have any EDC flash support. I did not take a peak at the stuff Thor was supposed to flash, but I may do so now and possibly re-flash using my own tools now that I have them.

This sucks man I thought a company finaly figured a convenient way to flash euro MDM or gts MDM but with all this stuff in the last few pages I'm skeptical. Wish there was another way without having to get a tuner to do a custom tune.

I have had no issues with Thor and still use it with no issues. I'm not discounting the other posts, but they've been responsive every time I send an email, and the flasher has been consistent. I like how they use the latest OEM files and I can flash DCT, steering, diff, and traction control in one place rather than having multiple different apps or coders for different things.

For me personally I'd rather code it myself so I can see the configuration with my own eyes. I'm way to OCD to trust a "blind" flash again.

I've had some absolute flash and tuning nightmares with previous vehicles with "promises" of coding and flashing.

That being said Kubax86 did a great job and I'm sure others here on the forum are good as well. I'm no way including them in my bad experiences.

He did a tune for you? Maybe I should hit him up. I just need a euro mdm or more liberal mdm mode. The US one cuts too much on the track, at least on my set up it does.

Yeah he can do that, he's the one that got me out of this mess. I posted a thread in the coding forum. Good work and more reasonably priced unlike some out there..
