    Gintani/OE tuning Have Cracked Locked DME

    So as some of u may know and some of u may not know, my car was updated with the first BMW SW version created to keep tuners out of tuning the s65 DME, ISTA/P version 37.2. BMW had been working on this newest software for almost a year. Basically found out what tools and how tuners have been tuning the DMEs thus far and made ways that locked out all the tools and procedures used by tuners. Ofcourse I didnt know this I just wanted the latest software in my car so that my I drive could stop freezing.

    So after I updated my complete vehicles sw, including DME, i had my car towed to Gintani. They then told me they could not tune the car, that something kept locking them out when writting my tune back to it. I figured it was nothing big and left my car. A week went by and they were still working on it. Another week went by and I started getting scared because Mfest was around the corner, this is when they figured out what was going on and what BMW had done. Luckily by Mfest Alex @ Gintani and Jeremy @ OE tuning figured out enough in my DME to make it run properly except for my DSC and ABS were disabled. I didnt care cause I was gonna race the car and I dont use those things on the track anyways. My car drove fine to Mfest, on the track and back.

    After Mfest I left my car at Gintani for another couple of weeks so that Alex@Gintani/Jeremy@OE tuning were able to figure everything out and clear up all the bugs. My car is now running perfectly fine, so for those who have questioned it, yes OE Tuning can tune locked out DMEs, do not listen to other rumors. I have experienced this first hand with my car. BIG thanks to ALex@Gintani and Jeremy@OE tuning for all the hard work and time spent on cracking my DME.

    Your car is proof so I don't understand why this whole thing originated. It is like PG is grasping at any rumor to attack for some reason. Why can't he just be happy for others?

    I just hope ESS is not encouraging his behavior as if they are, I'm not sure what to say to that.

    A shame that PG is so vindictive that he would punish you for spreading knowledge.

    I'm happy to have you here. Just wish we could get everyone else here too.

    I can't even read that site anymore, people don't know what they are missing. Oh well, eventually they will find out about BB, just going to be time.

    I think he will be a bit too embarassed to show his face for a while. Everyone will be asking what happened his to his mod title and how will he explain that he said he couldn't wait to sue sponsors and potential sponsors hoping to destroy their business?

    I even used to feel sorry for Robert. I don't anymore. I'm glad his OE Tuning ECU lock out vendetta blew up in his face.

    What? Because you stated that they could tune the locked DME's, they banned you? Makes no sense whatsoever!

    I'm amazed you expect a logical decision making process from them.

    I'm amazed that you're amazed that I was amazed he was banned, lol. Bro, come on banning him for that makes no sense, I would hope another moderator there gets wind of it and unbans him.

    Well that was kind of my point Click here to enlarge It makes no sense, he shouldn't be banned, but that has never really stopped them.

    Oh well, I'm done pointing out everything wrong with them and I'm concentrating on doing the best I can for everyone here.

    Is there a way to check your own DME version? I got my DME flashed back in April, I'm curious to know if it includes this new restricted code.

    This may not be accurate but I remember someone saying something about being able to check it through I-drive?

    The best way to check is by loading up the vehicle like if were going to get programmed, then when the measure plan is determined it will say what sw. level is on the vehicle, or u can check thru the ISID/GT1. Not sure about the I drive tho. I beleive in April the software version 37.2 was already released. It depends on how fast the dealer updates the ISTA/P. But most should have had 37.2 by middle to late March. So by April, Im gonna say its safe to say u have the locked version.
