After the success of the on-line MSS5x binary modification tool I created, I decided that a new challenge was in order. The challenge was to re-write the tool from scratch in .NET and allow the tool to be used off-line, whilst increasing the functionality of the tool greatly.
The result is a versatile Windows application that allows a user to make numerous changes without having to edit a single byte of hex.
So, what does the Binary Modification Tool do, I hear you ask. Well, the tool allows anyone to modify numerous parameters inside their E46 M3 or E39 M5 ECU without having to use expensive ‘pro tuning’ tools or in-depth knowledge of hex editing.
Feature currently implemented include the following:
– 155MPH Limiter removal
– SMG Style Shift lights on 6 Speed Manual cars (E46 Only)

The software requires the .NET 4.0 framework, which can be downloaded from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851
In order to write out your modifications a license is required if you wish to write out the changes.
A license request can be generated by loading the full or partial dump from your car (taken using BMWFlash) and then generating a license request. The key will allow you to modify your binary as many times as you like. Please ensure you have the correct binary loaded before generating the request to avoid receiving a license for the wrong version.
Pricing is £20 for a single version license or £150 for an unlimited version license for those servicing multiple vehicles.
