When using this shifter together with 8HP, Park can be triggered by holding shifter up while in neutral.

When using this shifter together with F-DCT, DriveLogic mode changes has to be done through a button (BMW # 61317850574) connected to the shifter. A universal grounding (with resistors) button can also be used instead on pin 1. Resistance needs to be 9.4kOhm when not pressed, and 4.7kOhm when pressed. This is achievable using two 4.7kOhm resistors.
