THOR - the M Flasher


Dear M2 Community, on this thread I would like to introduce our brand-new iOS app „THOR - the M Flasher“ and give you a insight into this DIY solution.


THOR is the first Tuning solution to flash your dual-cutch transmission, dynamic stability control, limited slip differential and electromechanical steering with your iOS Smartphone by yourself. Increase the performance of your DCT gearbox and optimize your dynamic stability program (MDM mode), your electronically controlled limited slip differential and your steering with the Dynamic Package.


Choose from the OEM quality settings Road&Track or Clubsport and bring even more performance in your vehicle.

You can choose between 2 respectively 3 different packages.

Packages / Maps
- Full Flash Package
- DCT Package

DCT Package
The DCT package consists as our two gearbox maps Road&Track and Clubsport.

Dynamic Package
Our Dynamic Package combined the three codings/flashs
- electromechanical steering
- dynamic stability control
- limited slip differential

and offers you also our two different maps Road&Track and Clubsport.

The Full Flash Package is our saving special and includes both Packages (DCT and Dynamic) with an 20% price advantage.


THOR highlights:
- faster and smoother shifts
- improved MDM Mode
- earlier upshift in comfort mode (eco tune)
- more traction
- improved clutch pressures
- THOR can be removed at any time and your vehicle configured back to the default condition (update safety)

Can you provide a video of your DCT flash behavior during normal casual driving in automatic, with the car in sport or sport plus on the M2 ?

Why not just provide Euro MDM and the most updated (CS) steering? At least then people would know what they were getting. I already have a Wifi OBD reader, I don't need another.

Of course, I will create a video in the next few days.

In terms of our OEM quality maps.

Road&Track = CS like
Clubsport = GTS like

By the way. If you flash your vehicle back to series with THOR, you get the Euro MDM.

We know, a lot of us owns a WiFi Adapter. The THOR Adapter is the only compatible at the moment. Unfortunately, but flashing does not work with the adapters who are available on the market.

Our adapter is compatible with following apps

- THOR
- xHP Flashtool
- Bimmergeeks Pro-Tool

THOR_Flasher, I'm very glad that you bring this TCU flash to F8X.

There is a consensus in the M3/M4 community that OEM GTS works brilliantly with S55 engine. It clamps better, shifts faster and removes all the jerkiness at lower gears.

The same cannot be said to F87 M2 N55, with which throttle and shifting cannot be separately configured. The DCT seems not to be fully compatible with OEM GTS transmission software. The "symptom" after you flash through, is that however you toggle between C/S/S+, the shifting gets always stuck in GTS comfort, throttle response adjusts accordingly though. Also, you have C1/C2...C7 gear display on dash, instead of D1..D7 prior to flash.

I was the early trier of GTS gearbox in early 2017 and flashed back to stock in a few weeks.

If your software just codes GTS/CS file to F87 M2 N55, the symptom said above could happen.

Please double confirm that your software is not only flashable with F87 M2 N55, but also "properly working" with it.

I'm 100% in, if THOR software works as intended.

Hi Sean,

thanks for your input and your comment about the “symptom” on the BMW M2. It’s correct, because the Drive Experience Control is different between BMW M2 and M3/M4 as you described it.

And YES, it happens with THOR too. A lot of our Users love the C mode while driving in the automated mode. But if you love it or not it depends very much on your driving profile.

Some of our BMW M2 customers, only buy the dynamic package. Others often flash between Series and Road&Track or Clubsport (DCT). Drives to the Racetrack “Series” and flash on the pit lane to Clubsport.

But thank you very much for your note. One thing is certain. The DCT Flash on the BMW M2 polarized. You love it or hate it. I’m loving it but I can also understand who does not.

Doesn't dynamic pack ie MDM / diff / EPS do this already

R&T map level = OEM F87 Comp & CS level = OEM F82 GTS ??

It's possible. We have not verify it at the moment. We're waiting for our development M2 Comp.

But I think it's a difference between M2Comp. and M3CS MDM.

Hi Guys,

there’s a lot going on at THOR. As you might have noticed, we released our update v1.4 in the last week with some usability optimizations and the launch of our THOR dealer program. (Tuners welcome ☺ - please contact us by mail office@thorflasher.com)

Standing still is a step backwards: we look to the future! At the moment, we are working on following additions:
- CS-EDC Coding (M3/M4)
- roll out our Android Version
- support of M2 Competition

Estimated release our Android Version will be end of February. We got a lot of mails and messages about EDC-Coding. Currently we need a few more weeks for internal testing before we start with a wider beta group of M3 and M4.

And for all those who do not know THOR yet, a short introduction.

⚡THOR - The M Flasher ⚡

2 Different Maps Road&Track (CS) and Clubsport (GTS). Flash how often you want and feel the difference between Stock, GTS and CS factory maps.
�� DCT (dual-clutch transmission): improved gear changes, optimized clutch pressures, sharper rev. matching and removal of the harsh jockeying feel from the transmission.
�� DSC (dynamic stability control): more traction, better control and an advanced MDM Mode
�� LSD (limited slip differential): better cornering, more sensitive torque management.
�� EPS (electronic power steering): improved steering wheel feel (feels proper)

THOR highlights
⚡faster and smoother shifts
⚡improved MDM Mode
⚡change how often you want between stock, GTS or CS maps
⚡earlier upshift in comfort mode (eco tune)
⚡more traction
⚡improved clutch pressures
⚡update safety
⚡Ideal for vehicles with enhanced engine performance.
⚡Modified torque limiters.

To use THOR – the M Flasher, you’ll need an OBD II WiFi adapter. THOR is compatible only with the THOR OBD II WiFi adapter.

Yeah, you can do all the coding yourself with a little knowhow but flashing the DCT software yourself isn't a walk in the park for the inexperienced. This app is pretty cool just because of the ease of use and convenience factor. I'm assuming people who know how to do this stuff on their own aren't their target audience.

Anyone flashed CS DCT and would that make a difference from GTS in term of the responsiveness or more precisely the downshift sluggishness?

1 - Explain the DCT upgrade. So far the EURO MDM does not work with the M2 DCT. When installed it the tranny will be stuck in COMFORT mode when choosing any of the self shifting modes.

2- Will interfere with any previously installed upgrades.

3 - Verify that this will work with other WIFI OBD adapters. Having to purchase one specifically for this app will most likely dissuade most people.

1) of course, it's the same situation like the GTS DCT Flash.

2) it's no problem - the most of our customers have more modifications

3) I know, but at the moment it works with our adapter only. our android version works with cable as well, but it doesn't work on the iPhone/iPad.

Regardless of the dct package, the Highlight of the Competition Map is definitely the Dynamic Package with the Power Steering, MDM and Differential upgrade

Hi. i'm waiting for my M2 Competition to arrive. it will be there in may, so really soon.
I read about the problem with the m2 and the n55 engine.
I was wondering if flashing my M2 Competition which has a s55 engine everything works.

I'd like to try the cs and gts settings from the m3/m4 cars but i donàt want to spend 399 and be disappointed.

Is this strictly for M2/3/4's equipped with DCT? That's kind of what it seems like. Can you tell me what benefits, if any, your app has for cars equipped with manual transmissions. If you had a package designed for the M2C which could offer tuning to bring my M2C up to the same HP as my M4 I'd be interested. I'd also be interested in CS and GTS tunes as well as the ability to adjust burbles, start up roar, etc. Do you offer anything like that for manual equipped cars?
