    You want to fit it into a car that doesn't have it?

    Tbh I don't really see the point. I've never driven a car with anything other than a manual though so can't say how good it would be.

    What are you trying to achieve with this mod?

    sry, i think you have misunderstood what P-Tronic is.:confused: It has nothing to do with an automatic gear box , but is a box which goes between the engine ecu and the engine to add BHP and increase fuel economy
    google it and see as i cant post link as not enough posts

    Oh yeah! :embarrest: I read that as tiptronic for some reason.

    After searching and having a look on the BMW forums it seems to work kind of like a chip would do. I would leave well alone, but that's also because of the severe lack of knowledge. You could speak to Enda at End Tuning as he deals with a lot of BMW ECU related stuff (and knows them very well). If anybody knows, I'd imagine it would be him.
