What options are there for the sport button customisation?

Also would it be 20 per item for the bits on the surcharge list?

Thanks

For the DME changes its 20 for as many or as few options as you want, just one charge. It's the same as the cost for the license if you were to do it yourself, and it ends up in the charity pot anyway!

Now that is definitely a good deal

Will see if I can make the 15th July, if not hopefully there will be another one

When you say "CSL rev matching for SMG cars" is this the famed CSL ECU software update that makes for faster SMG gear changes, or just a part of it? Because my new (to me, 2005) SMG feels a bit slow to change gear even in mode 5.

It will certainly bring the smg box to life and is definitely the first thing you should get done if it hasn't already been done!

This is technically only part of the csl software package, we will update the dme with settings for csl rev matching and the inertia update, but due to time and risks involved vs benefit we wouldnt be able to do the smg ecu 255 update on a free coding day (technically this is programming not coding), for me the dme updates make all the difference and the 255 update seems unnecessary - although some people feel it completes the car, I've yet to drive one and notice any difference.

It's definitely worth getting the dme updates done first for rev matching etc and see how different the car feels! And for the price it's kind of a no brainer!

Then we can discuss any further software enhancements in person!

Code it to stop being a pain in the shoulder and just stay where it is?

If so, yes... But could just pull the fuse and kill them.

Just out of curiosity, what software will you be using for the coding?

Depends on the chassis, it will be either NCSexpert, Martyns DME mod software, Tool32, E-sys, BMW's aos portal ISTA/P or even on occasion Carly... It all depends on what we need to achieve

Hi just wondering if you knew any where up in the north east that does the coding as it sounds a great idea what your doing but would be a good drive down to derby. Cheers.

Im sure there are plenty of people around the north east who can help out, just throw up a post asking, you'll be inundated! However im not sure you'll find many/any professionals who will do it free of charge so you may need to put your hand in your pocket! or weigh up the cost and time to drive to derby vs the price you'd pay someone locally...

Either way, free or not, its absolutely worth doing, especially if you have an SMG car!
