Quick question. When I have my car reflashed with the 6 mt software, would I lose my Dinan software? I have upgraded throttle bodies and am just curious if this would cause an issue if it were lost per say? Anyone know?

It can be done without losing your Dinan software.

Confirmed

If you ever get a chance down the line to sort of "summarize" the parameters you needed to change for each module to get this to work, I'd be happy to add it to the coding section in the OP! I know that anyone capable of doing the coding has probably already spent hundreds of hours reading and could figure it out, but its always nice to not have to search when you actually need something to refer to! For now, I think I'll make it more of an FAQ section. All I remember is "nicht_aktiv" for the SMG LCD display when coding the cluster

Thanks again guys, I hope this helps someone!

I'm not entirely sure, but I do know that even after replacing those, you will still need to code your cluster and DSC module. I think having everything reflashed is both the best and most economical way of doing things. I'll let an expert answer this one more clearly!
