From xHP FB Page:

We are very proud to present another worlds-first to the BMW Community!

We've been working on this project for 15 months and finally arm-wrestled the BMW Dual Clutch Transmission! Not only are we able to flash first (E-Series) and second generation (F-Series) of the DCT through OBD (see www.xhpflashtool.com for adapter options), we are also able to offer you guys OTS Maps with raised line pressure and fine-tuned maps, to reliably work even on cars with double the stock-power. No more spongy shifting on high-power cars with the DCT trans. It now bangs the gears instant, consistent and punchy. Customers will also be able to further adjust shifting to their liking with a few easy sliders in the App. From a wheel-spinning, super-hard 1-2 shift, to a super-smooth and fast shift in 2 minutes with xHP. (awesome in the rain)

Available Custom Options:
- Adjust Launch RPM Target/Min/Max
- Adjust Shift-Points
- Adjust Torque Punch on Upshift
- Torque Reduction during Upshift
- Configure Max. RPM
- Rear Differential Ratio
DCT-Support will be available from early July 2020 for 135i, 335i and Z4 35i(s) E-Series. Support for F8x M-Cars will follow in the next weeks, once testing is finished. Other variants at a later stage.
Licenses and Maps can be bought from July 6th on at

Sales page has been updated to reflect DCT:
  • Enables unlimited flashing for a single Vehicle (VIN - Lock) with ZF6HP/ZF8HP Automatic or 7-Speed DCT Transmission. (only E-Series right now, F-Series soon)

It's been released. But they want £180 for the flasher and £180 for the map pack. £360 for a transmission flash!
I was all up for buying this ASAP but they can get fucked at that price :tearsofjoy:

That's kind of a bummer, I thought it would be a little cheaper but then again, no one else has this so....

If it turns out to be incredible then I'll probably buy it. I have no problem throwing money away on car stuff but I feel that pricing is out of whack with reality and as a matter of principal will avoid.

I put up a thread about it last week on a UK Z4 board and there was a lot of interest assuming the normal xHP pricing (£200 for flasher and map pack) but most still were going to hold back until others post feedback. I think at £360 it's a non starter.

I agree that’s steep AF!

What can we actually do with only the license?

Do we actually really NEED the OTS Maps?

Reading the manual i am not really figuring if i can tweak the features without an OTS map.

So you only need the flasher, you can tweek the stock map on sliders.
The map pack is well...not really needed ?

Now another round of patience waiting for the M version to see if we can keep the M style shifter.

I see we can customize their OTS maps. Does it support custom maps that can be shared?

It's a smaller base, but yeah, money grab. Can't wait to see the M taxed version for the same tranny. I may buy the flasher and hold off the maps.

That's what I want to know from whomever is jumping on it: can the stock bin be read out, modified and flashed back?

I bought xHP for my old auto so I already own the flash license, but ffs, another 225 bucks on top of that? no way. I’ll wait for it to go on sale or something at best. I didn’t pay 400 dollars for an OTS map for mhd I’m not paying 400 dollars for an OTS trans map. custom tunes cost that much.
