I've now been running his mod to my gearbox control module for about a month and it does what he claims. I'm very satisfied and getting around 5-10 % better fuel mileage overall

He covers all that at his site in English and German. elzin@gmx.de
I suggest you not write to him in English however.
On my E39 530d getting the TCM unclipped from the E-box was the hardest part but once I worked out how to do this the entire process takes 10 minutes.
