Guys,

Just quick question. Can anyone remember the file size of the MYGFile that you sent to Bren? Mine was only about 8.68KB but got a 3.4MB file back.

Does this sound right?

That is right around the numbers that I had also.

Thanks Megawatt155, that's reassured me. Just need to find time to upload it to the bike.

Trying to download from my ECU to device. How do I know which ECU I have? I would assume that between 17.2, an 17.2.4, the latter would have to be for a newer bike, but I also know what happens when we assume, and with older BMWs, there were sometimes running two different suppliers for the same model year, so....

The sticker on the OBD cord has no such information, so do I have to unscrew all the right tupperware/covers to get down to the unit itself? Somewhere in the GS-911 data maybe?

Something easier I'm missing?

I was wondering the same thing last night when I downloaded mine. I went with the 17.2 version and when I emailed it to bren I told them I was not sure which ECU version I had. They did not mention it in my email chain but I got back my new tunes and I uploaded the original and then the stage 2 as stated in their directions. Everything is working on my 2018 GA.

Emailed them. My first assumption was correct.

Hmm. Maybe just applies to the ‘19s.

Is it working "better"? If so, I missed @StephenV 's link before posting my last, but it's more than great to know that yours is, even with a '17+ bike.

I am now waiting, as I hooked mine up to the ol' GS-911, and the handheld twice, and forgot to turn down my two sets of Denali lights, so even though everything seems fine, the Optimate charger now says it's gone into the mode of trying to "save" my battery, so I shut-'er-down for today, out of an abundance of caution, since I won't have a chance to ride until next week, anyway. *sigh*.

Either it is working just fine with the 17.2 or bren changed the version when they sent it back to me. Which I would guess would be easy for them to do since they have everyone's ECU versions. At least I hope so lol
