In Reply to: 95' 540 But isn't the tranny chip just the S-mode posted by Roger Neef on September 26, 2001 at 21:23:25:

close. it makes the transmission a little more responsive to accelerator input, but also allows you to hit the new, higher redline in the automatic modes (which may or may not be that big a deal).

in the 535ia application, it also speeds up the shifts, theoretically extending the lives of the clutches, i'm assuming it does the same for the 540ia.

constantly engaged?
