I have an early build N55 with DCT that last received SIB 12-15-14. Is there anyone else here that received that flash from the dealer and has successfully had the PPK flashed by Joe with zero problems after?

We've flashed several that had the dealer updated software. I'll let them chime in if they want to.

Yep, Zero problems for me. Car is running better than ever at 117,000 miles. Wish I did this sooner!

Flashed earlier this week - and what a difference it made!

Would definitely recommend Joe. Took less than 30 minutes.

Probably voids the shit out of your warranty but screw them. Enjoy your car. I'm loving it on mine and my warranty runs through September.

It is possible that CPO warranty may not cover damage due to software flashing. Therefore, the customer assumes the risk of modifying/tuning their car.

Big props to Joe@TopGearSolutions! We set up a time this weekend and he walked me through it all via either phone/chat. We actually took care of a couple of things, and I couldn't be more pleased .

Somewhat but it's still not great.

Sprint Booster or Pedal Box should eliminate this throttle lag.

Terry said he plans to add throttle response to the next jb4 firmware too. We should all email him to ask for it.

Joe did the ppk flash on my car 2 days ago, the whole process took about 30 minutes.

I did not had access to a dyno so I did some 0-100km runs using MLaptimer before and after the flash. On average the car is 0.2 sec faster now but the best part is the sound !

Really happy with the flash !
