Just two minor corrections, if you don't mind:
- BMW Performance flash only gives you +20hp (crank, not whp)
- ESS is 749$ for all stages (at least for members of this forum)

I could add quite a number of flashes from the European market where they are more popular, but as I don't think they're widely available in the US I'll pass on that for now.
