    Hi

    I think my car is November 2007. I had it remapped via the onboard port with lovely results. However prior to the remap I had a idle issue which never went away after the remap. took it to BMW who updated all the cars software, which didn't solve the idle issue [when cold, revs spike, like searching, after warmed up, totally goes away],

    BUT they overwrote my remap! As soon as I left the garage I could tell. Back to the remapper who could no longer flash via on board as BMW software was now ENCRYPTED!

    Sent the ECU away for it be physically remapped out of the car, what a mare that was getting it out. Still couldn't be done. Software and encryption brought my car up to date as of March 2011.

    Apparently I'm now stuck with what I got until someone can crack this new encryption or something. HELP????!!!!

    Sounds about right I'm afraid,

    One of the remap vendors on here was saying how they can't do them currently.

    The only person that I know that may be able to remap this car at present is my mate Jason at BWchiptune. Try calling him on 07831103030. It will be a bit of a drive down to Hounslow in Middlesex but i'll be worth while.
    I know that when I was last with him he was remapping a new 2011 4.0D X5 which went like stink afterwards. It's all a matter of having the right tools and know how you see.

    Hi, thanks for replies. gutting isn't it, all that money down the drain! would i be right in assuming tuners / programmers etc will actively be working on this issue and in say 6 to 12 months there could be a universal breakthrough?

    That is unlucky that but did it not cross your mind in the first place that a software update may overwrite your remap?

    Yes they will be, you may find someone has broken it already, otherwise give it time.
