        Why would I want to switch to a flash, so I don't have to remove the JB3 all the time whenever I need to go into the dealership for service... The two I use are VERY anal about seeing any modifications, specially tunes (piggyback), yeah I could switch to a different dealership, but location wise they are very convient for me, even if other people avoid them like the plague.

        Like i said, a 4-6 hour round trip is not in my best interest... (depending on how I drive). And being Active Military doesn't afford me the opportunity to just up and leave every time I need to get flashed... Plus if I need tech support, again, 4-6 hours round trip is Not in my best interest... And weekends are now out of my area of freedom, as my wife went back to work on weekends and I have to babysit my 20 month old... SO sorry if asking this many questions about it is bothersome, with all due respect..

        "Thanks for contacting OE Tuning. The tune is an OBD2 flash and can only be done by a dealer or you can send in your ecu..."
        That is also my understanding.

        Does anyone know if this works on the 2012 535i's?

        Unfortunately not. Below is the response I received from OE in regard to the 2012 535 N55 tune. Click here to enlarge Very sad day for me. I loved the OE tune on my e60 535i... Keeping the car stock for a couple months is out of the question, I guess my search goes on for now.
        Hi Chris,
        There is a tune in development for the 2012 535i. The issue that we have atthe moment is that the car runs fine after being tune, but once it is turnedoff and back on it no longer runs. Please check back in a few months to seewhat we have available.
        Best Regards,
        Josh

        Rolling encryption code - the E60 550i's had it too. It can be defeated with some flash tools - they will have to figure it out on the 2012's.

        I thought the X5 35i's and 535's shared the same programming... Is there really that subtle a difference between the two encryptions?

        Yup, makes it a little scary. I will let someone else be the guinea pig.

        Probably a check bit no one knows about yet. There is not only encryption but compression algorithms.
