Csl flash for the smg

I just got the csl flash for the smg and omg it makes the car far more fun now. Also figured out why my smg light was on (salmon relay) the car now shifts perfect and while I was at it I installed an afe intake with a samsco intake boot. Smg owners might want to thinking about the csl flash.

Raises launch control. Over all ifeel that shifts are a lot smoother. Downshifts blip the throttle more in lower RPM's resulting in smoother, quicker downshifts.

I think the CSL launch control is actually higher than the Euro one. And the shifts are suppose to be faster than the Euro one.

Guys, the butt-dyno doesn't count.

I have track tested the CSL flash on two M3s (one of them mine). The SMG flash has zero effect on shifting performance.
