Yes, the adaptation may cause damage to SMG components. Adaptation usually needed when new parts replaced to the SMG or the clutch biting point has gone out of sync. However, the SMG should be able to learn the biting point during driving or you can apply the soft reset by holding both shift paddles for couple seconds while cruising in neutral.

Hi,
Just put a new clutch in my m3 and wondered if you could help with the software?

Really appreciated.

Cheers

Henry

Hi,

Am also getting this juddering issue from cold at low speed. What does the soft reset do exactly, and could this resolve the issue?

Cheers

James

My understanding is that the "soft reset" will return SMG settings to the factory default at time of manufacture. I've done it several times, with no noticeable change. I do find that the SMG learns my driving style over a bit of time, and adapts itself. That said, I live in the desert where summer temperatures will routinely hit 120 F. From time to time, at those temps, I still get a little shuddering when leaving a stop. I'm going to buy the Frank Smith Tuning software for SMG as soon as I can make time to deal with that. Will post any noticeable changes.

I would not recommend doing a full adaption, I would use dis and just teach in the clutch. I have done it for several people and it has resolved there juddering issue.

I don't think there is a guide but its not hard to do if you familiar with DIS.
Dis is the old bmw diagnostic software.

Apart from adaptations, there is a separate option to learn in the clutch bitepoint.

Not only after a clutch change, but also after x amount of time. When you hear more slip when shifting, relearn the bitepoint to take the wear into account and shifts will be better.

It takes onlyba few seconds.

No dude, you need to use DIS for the clutch bite point reset.

Worth mentioning that you need to do the clutch bite point reset with the engines and gearbox up to operating temperature. If you do it when cold you'll find the clutch start to slip once the car is warm as the tolerances shift as the gearbox bell housing etc expand with the heat.

Very interested in this.. My clutch is slipping a bit so before I go and replace it I'm going to try reseting the bite point. Is there a procedure with getting dis to work. It just seems dead on my laptop.. Bought the software cable shack cable and laptop from razza on here . . Inpa works but the vm Ware / dis rest don't seem to get further than the Base opening page.. Any setting needing changed on the computer that are obvious to those more computer minded than me? .. Cheers

Does anyone know of anybody or a reputable garage in greater west London that could do a clutch bite reset?

1. Plug car into laptop, open INPA and turn the car ignition on but dont start it.
2. Press F9 to open special tests.
3. Double click on 'SMG Adaptation for Sequential M-Gearbox'.
4. Press F1 then F8 to bleed gearbox actuator and let it run through the test.
5. Press F2 then F8 to bleed the clutch and let it run through the test.
6. Press F3 then F8 to start a complete adaptation and let it run through the program (takes quite a while so make sure your battery is good or you have a power pack on it)

And that is the SMG Adaptations all done.

Any probs give me a shout

Hutch
sorry do you need to remove the smg relay when performing this?

Its worth trying a paddle reset first to see if this helps....

Get to over 30 mph, put into neutral, pull both paddles back together towards you and hold for 10 seconds...

Mine definitely felt a lot smoother when I did this not long after I got it and it then re-learns your particular driving style...

Oh and its free so nothing to lose by trying it...

Is there a tell tale sign to look out for when its reset after holding the paddles back?
