BMW F8X – M2, M3 & M4 GTS Software Upgrades now availible!

Like the GTS, but not the £122k price tag? We've got some exciting new upgrades for you...

Brilliant news for anyone building a serious M2, M3 or M4 – we’ve got some new software that’ll give you the edge on the track!

JFA can now offer the following;

GTS DCT Performance software

On the track sharper changes were required, more control over the gearbox. The DCT software offers just that, offering significant improvements in acceleration. The transmission is more responsive, and generally that bit better than on the stock car – a factory tested TCU remap. This also writes in the delightful M4 GTS exhaust burbles & crackles – giving you the GTS sound, even with a factory exhaust.

GTS Traction Control Software

On the track you don’t want the electronics to be pulling the power out at the first sign of a slip as it’ll cost valuable seconds each lap. The GTS software allows a little more slip in MDM, making for much more stability and safety right at the edge of the limits of grip. Traction control is more race orientated aimed at making you faster, than road orientated (i.e aimed at helping you not crash the car). A real must have for the advanced driving enthusiast.

GTS Differential Software

The differential in the rear of the M-series cars is a clever bit of kit, offering electronicly adjustable limited slip characteristics. This basicly means, that it can change the amount of diff locking on the go. The GTS diff has the same hardware, however has a more track focussed setup. This offers much greater high speed stability, improved control when the back does finally break loose and a much better launch off the line.

GTS Power Steering Software

When driving fast, you’re reliant entirely on feedback through the steering wheel to let you know exactly what the car is doing. Whilst loads of power assistance is great in the supermarket carpark, having a very light floaty steering wheel at 100MPH+ results in a very twitchy and unstable car. The GTS PAS software dials a lot of the power assistance back at speed, resulting in much much better control & offers a more direct feel to the car.
