MHD N55 OTS Testing w/ xHP Stage 3 Trans Flash
Recently xHP released their renditions of performance oriented transmission flashes for the BMW 6AT automatic transmissions found in a number of Late model BMW's from N54 to N55 and more.
Blurb From xHP's site:
xHP Flashtool put’s the power to fully customize your automatic transmission at your hands. Connect your Android smartphone to your car and customize around 100 maps by yourself or choose from pre-defined OTS maps in the xHP in-App Store. xHP will transform your transmission and give you a totally new driving experience.
Tuning your transmission is not only about getting quicker or holding more power. An automatic transmission is deeply involved into vehicle dynamics and contributes very much to the overall driving experience.
From crawling in traffic, over city driving to taking your vehicle to the drag strip or a race track, the Transmission Controller widely defines how your car feels. Like everyone drives different with a manual, the maps inside the Controller hide the secrets to tune your automatic transmission to your personal likings and finally experience what BMW promised you once in the glossy brochure
