<flame suit on>

Someone explain this to a retarded newbie to BMW's.

A few newbie quesitons:

1.) What exactly is this - software that I upload to the car via what - my comp? Or is it something that I hardwire in and leave in that upgrades the ECU?

2.) How difficult is the install. As you can tell from my post - I wouldn't have a clue - so is there a step-by-step install instructions with this?

3.) I'm assuming it's going to void my warranty - correct?

4.) Can I upgrade engine performance parts without screwing up the tune? Like if I get a new intercooler or exhaust etc?

5.) Do you need an oil cooler (mine is non-sport and I feel like I need to shop for an oil cooler for this car, but is it necessary?)

6.) Can you always switch back to stock Tune and how would you do that?

7.) How much is it? - nevermind - re-read ($379)

Sorry to the guys who are reading through this thread and now are rolling their eyes reading my dumb questions - but I prepared with my flame suit, so it's all good.

Mike, can you tackle these questions. Thanks,
