    Hell Gents,
    Does anyone know if the kick own on a 1996 P38 dse can be reprogrammed not to kick down above 65MPH - or when in Cruise - mine will kick down even at 80 in cruise if I hit a hill,I would rather the bloody thing slow down a couple of klicks, but no she kicks down and screams its tits off for a couple of hundred yards and then changes back up to where it was before.

    One of the downfalls of a rather antiquated system I'm afraid. I lifted the following from Ashcroft Transmissions web site

    Not much help considering the DSE has electronic kick down and is a very modern system. Unlike the V8s that still use a cable.

    If you are a dead smart programmer and fully understand the BMW/Bosch engine ECU, no doubt it can be re-programmed.
