    Thanks guys! I'm glad I found myself a nice gem. I was a little bummed not to have the desirable competition package but after a little re-assurance from friends, it made sense not to have it. I was planning to upgrade the suspension and rims anyways which would defeat the purpose of buying a ZCP.

    I was honestly very surprised. I was expecting to hunt for at least 6 months like yourself. What did you get?

    It is part of the premium package. I think it may be optionally added to those without ZPP.

    I was thinking you moved on to something else without me knowing

    When I was looking for my ZHP, I think it took 6months to find a car that wasn't even fully ideal. I was looking for an Alpine White, Premium, Cold and I somehow settled for a Black Sapphire, Cloth, fixed back. The price helped back then. This time around, I spent more than I really wanted but I got a nice one.


    Before we digress too far, back to my M3

    # Competition Package EDC
    The Competition Package Electronic Damping Control has revise settings compared to the standard EDC from the M3. There is mainly two differences that has been noted online.

    1. 10mm shorter springs on the ZCP.
    2. Revised Sport Mode to enable variable dampening instead of static 75% stiffness.

    In addition, the control of the electronic damper adjustment function EDC includes a Sport mode specially developed for the Competition Package. It is said to adjust the chassis modifications by means of map-based control and the driving stability control function DSC.
    ##Goal
    I originally wanted a ZCP M3 cause those Style 359 rims are the best rims BMW makes. The Suspension had a slight difference that probably would've made me keep the car stock in that aspect. However since rims are just rims and I read on forums of people successfully coding in their EDC to ZCP EDC, I decided to start hunting how to do this. Forums were somewhat unhelpful as most of the folks who knew offer paid services to do it. I'm not about that.

    Code my standard EDC into ZCP EDC and document it somewhere online.
    The DSC portion of the ZCP package I believe is just Euro MDM. Euro MDM allows more slip angle than the US MDM. Nuff Said.

    That is coded into the MK60_M3.Cxx with the follow parameters:
    Code:
    US_VEHICLE    Nicht_aktiv
    MDYNAMIC_MODE_USA    Nicht_aktiv
    M3_UEBERSTUEUERN_MUE_0    wert_00
    M3_UEBERSTUEUERN_MUE_1_2    wert_00
    ### The Research
    With the help of NCSDummy, I opened up the DATEN File for EDCK65.C1A to see input values and their corresponding data values.

    Short description:
    dx9023 = Non-ZCP E90 with EDC
    dx9030 = ZCP E90 (EDC is standard)





    As shown above, the options row shows the requirements to meet in order to use that value as default. An exclamation mark means negate in this situation. The Data row is the output to the module and in this parameter, they are identical. This means this parameter doesn't care if you are a ZCP or non-ZCP, you are getting this value no matter what.

    However, in the below one they are different data values of C8 and A0. What these actual values mean is beyond me. However, this helps conclude my research to a specific finding.





    ### Proposed coding

    Code every parameter to dx09030 should apply all the values from a ZCP to my EDC module. I suppose you don't have to do every parameter as some of them offer the same data value but it is faster(lazier) to just code dx09030 all the way through.

    I'm pretty sure this will work as most people suggest feeling revised settings after coding in the ZCP values. However since they either didn't know what they were coding or someone did it for them, I am not 100% sure this will work. (99% maybe.)

    I hope I will have some time this weekend to fiddle with it.

    Subbed! I've been going back and forth on picking one of these up or getting an employee lease on an F80. Looking forward to your build

    There’s no doubt the F80 is one sexy, and downright impressive car, but the E9x is the last of an era (yes I know they say that about every single generation of ///M car).
