    Code or no code I am out of warranty so based upon who S mode and M mode feels, I would never go back to the way the car felt before and flash back to the Oem stuff. Just not anything to how it is now.

    Find someone with an alpina B5 and have them get in contact with you and if they can get the assembly line and hardware then it would be a start to see what can be done...But using Alpina B3 found in a E89 chassis is not the way to go and work, as we saw from the OP that tried to flash his 535xi

    MSD81 no codes here.

    OK, I finally got home and was able to attempt checking things out. For some reason I am getting a module not found on my transmission so I can not see the part number... IMPA has always worked fine for me in the past and I can see all modules except the trans. Never checked it before so I am guessing this issue was there b4 the flash.

    Anyways, here is the information that I was able to pull.

    My ZB number matches your earlier post.

    Alpina flash ID is present

    Code 511B is present

    Questions:
    1 - Do you think my flash is ok?
    2 - Any ideas what I can do to get into my Trans via IMPA?
    3 - Couple of additional codes that I do not think are related to this... Any ideas?

    I haven't finished reading the thread, realize that this is for AT cars, especially since I don't think Alpina has a DCT B3, but I was curious if there is something out there for DCT N54 cars like this?

    Good new B&Gs... The 511B is a know erroneous fault caused by an error in a diagnostic software. SI B 24 11 06 Click here to enlarge Below is the SB.

    So, for those under warranty, if you think your dealership is smart enough to know you are running the Alpina code, don't flash. (just kidding) It stays in you flash history, but very unlikely anyone would ever notice because it just looks like a normal flash. My car already has three different assembly numbers applied to the EGS. Two from the dealership and one from me Click here to enlarge. I actually flashed back to OEM today to see if the code goes away and ended up pulling off to the side of the road and flashing it back because the OEM code sucks so bad I couldn't stand it.

    Haha, nothing has been easy about this whole thing. But it is good news. @Cn555ic and I have been going round and round trying to find a solution. But now that it's a diagnostic coding issue with BMW firmware I can sleep again.

    To all BB members enjoying this flash...

    @Sticky Can you please update the first page with this


    DIY Guide to Flash Alpina B3 Flash:



    ************************************************** **********************************
    WARNING...If you dont know what your doing, dont be brave and blindly go into this advanced flashing of software into the TCU module.. If you mess up you can easily brick your tranny module and you will find yourself towing the car to the dealer and looking like a fool. If your not too confident in doing this, either pay someone or just do without it.....WinKFP is a very dangerous tool but yet its awesome and in terms of coding its pretty advanced.. Proceed after reading this warning if you choose to do so...

    ************************************************** **********************************




    This Alpina TCU flash works for model years 3/07 till present. If your production date is before 3/07, your out of luck and cant flash your car! Before you attempt this you should have some knowledge in coding and setting software. You need to confirm INPA software is working and communicating with car. If you dont have INPA communicating, dont move beyond this point and go back and do some more research on getting it to work.. There are plenty of DIY guides for setting up INPA, Ediabas, NCSexpert and WinKFP.


    You can purchase a proven cable that works...Please dont ask will this one work as it is cheaper if so...Buy one that is proven!
    http://www.one-stop-electronics.com/...&product_id=16

    ONE NOTE::: Please no PMs on how to set it up. You have to do some work yourself..

    Once you have configured your laptop properly, you need to download Spdaten 48.1 the full version for E89 chassis. Dont download the lite versions as it doesnt have the necessary files needed for flashing modules. There are torrent links around...Look for them! The E89 Spdaten needs to be imported to WinKFP. There are PDFs showing how to get this done, do a search! Once it correctly imported, then you may start the flash using Winkpf.
    First you have to run the Winkfp and configure it to work correctly...Here is the picture of what needs to be done in the configurations..

    Click here to enlarge

    Once your done with that part:


    Here we go:

    -Make sure your battery is good if not get a battery charger

    -Open drivers door and turn ignition ON (cluster guage on)

    -connect cable to obd connector of car

    -Load Winkpf software

    -Press (F1) comfort mode

    -Press (F3) Update ZUSB

    -Choose ECU GKE215

    -Press (F2) Choose ZUSB

    -Choose ECU GKE215 and next to it there will be ZB-Numbers..Find 7615835

    -Click ok

    -If you have done it correctly so far you will see at the top Assembly Identification number 7615835 and it will automatically reference the magical Alpina B3 TCU flash software 7591971

    -Press (F4) Enter VIN ( make sure you double check you have entered the correct VIN numbers)

    -click ok

    -Press DONE (F8)

    -Press (F3) Program

    -Pop up window will say you can code the ECU 63 more times, click ok

    -Flashing begins and you will have to wait till it reaches 100%

    -once it reaches 100% it will pop up again saying you have 62 more times to program the ECU, click ok

    -Programming again starts, wait until this reaches 100%

    -If everything is done correctly, then you will get a pop up screen saying programming done, click ok


    -Shut off car by taking key out. Lock car with key, wait 5 minutes and start the car..If everything works correctly you will not
    have any warning signs or check engine lights...Enjoy your newly transformed AT Alpina B3 software


    -If everything works and the car starts without errors and its confirmed the gears are able to go into gear, then shut off car


    -Open INPA software and clear out the DME codes for N54 engine, and also from the transmission module itself....

    *****For some there will be a code 511B which will not clear as its a reoccurring fault code thats triggered by a faulty diagnostic test...Thanks to @Wedge1967 for digging up the SIB bulletin on this, thats major news that BMW is aware of it and its nothing of concern for those still on warranty! Great news.. Here is the SIB

    Click here to enlarge


    I have worked long and hard to get this Alpina B3 flash to where it is now so everyone can enjoy this without any glitches. If you feel that my DIY on Winkfp for flashing Alpina B3 flash and the other to get the paddle shifter working, helped in anyway, and you would like to make a small contribution for my efforts, I would be grateful and appreciate it..If not thats cool too.

    Nothing from any "mainstream" vendors, but if you're desperate for a DCT software upgrade ESS sells one for the M3 (no guarantees on how well it works or what it actually changes) and G-Power might also have something available. Chances are it'll have a ridic price tag tho

    It looks like it as people with newer builds reporting not having this error 511B. Based on the bulletin it said it would be taken cared of on future diagnostics which I would believe the MSD81 is the answer.
