Bootmod3 Sport Flap Option

For all you guys running BM3, is your sport flap open in Sport/Sport+ mode and closed in comfort working?

I have a 2013 650i GC and this option is not working for my vehicle. I've gone back and forth with customer service (which has been excellent) trying to get this issue resolved for weeks and it still doesn't work as it should. This was one of the big reasons for going with BM3. Not a huge deal breaker but I'm a little disappointed since the license for our platform costs 2x the price for other BMWs with less than half the features. The Open/Close feature in Diagnostics doesn't even work for my vehicle. I know my flap works since I am able to control it through BimmerLink without any issues and it shouldn't interfere with how BM3 controls it when it is off.

U cant open or close the flap, its not electronic, it opens with exhaust pressure, its not like in 640i.

Can the flap be tied open manually?

Yes but that defeats the purpose of having that option.

I'm pretty sure most BMWs are vacuum actuated and that Bootmod3 would know this before advertising this option for different platforms.
edit: I can open and close it with BimmerLink at will.

I just tried to do the same thing. I enabled the exhaust flaps open in sport mode on BM3, but it did not work. I tried opening the flaps with the wifi obd agent, and no love there either. I am pretty disappointed this does not work.

Massive thread resurrection sorry, but did this ever get resolved? I have the same issue and it works fine with BimmerLink but either diagnostics or map config in bootmod3 do not work

So I figured out when car is in park, the flaps are always closed. But when you drive off they open. So there was no need to fix this. I ended up getting muffler deletes.
