I'm not bashing on mofo but he is killing the market for our vendors and unless he can start providing free engineered hardware units for the N54 he's only softening the market.... =[
Actually, I'm surprised a pro shop would do coding unless they had the BMW equipment. If something goes wrong they could be looking a footing a very expensive repair bill; not to mentioned BMW might be upset with someone commercially using the software w/o a license.
I have no issue with a shop charging - they have to make a living but the downside seems large for them.
