    Aren't there immobilizers in that like the '15 mazda 3 2.0L that throw it into limp mode especially when you do a manual to 6 spd conv. I know the 07 328xi 3.0t dme's don't like communicatimg w/ passthrough ista d/p if there was a tune done on the dme ... all tree structures are red but the dme control structure in ista-d is green like nothings wrong.... except the customer soon experience qll of his other control structures going reed even after clearing all faults... start up they turned red... like it needed a new $1,400 dme for everything to be flashed to normal... i'm guessing all these new cars have luxury features and less is more when your flashing any figures in the ecm.... it's like bmw's jeez every module has there own relearn procedure like the column cluster...

    So your gonna laugh i had this 2011 bmw f10 and used a vx diag passthrough i-com using ista-p 3.66 software but b/c this was a twin turbo 5.0 grand tourismo deamon ot didn't allow ista-p to work and only ista-p could be used to re-calculate a plan and still a-lot of the modules were yellow so it didn't allow for a re-flash which was less work for me even though i installed a new column cluster and it auto-calibrated ... even though some things i didn't work in the new unit such as the heated steering wheel but i'm sure was a fuse
