This I did not know. So they can tell if you have flashed your car back to the Stock settings?

Its more of a counter. Even if you never had your car flashed with a tune it will still show 2-3 depending on how many updates you have received from bmw.

i know this might be a daft question or even price out of reality, but can a second ecu not be sourced and flashed then just swap back to the original one for dealer visits?

Is it for the n54 or n55 engine? Either way it's the first I've heard of Cobb on an x6. Good to know.

Did you have to do a custom tune, cause I did not see any maps for the x5/6 - I'm intrigued...

N55
Their maps are not posted online for the E7x - contact them directly if you are interested and they will set you up.

Sweet man thanks. If u don't mind me asking, what power increase are you seeing. I bet the extra power must feel nice on the x6.

What year is your n55?

The n55 x5 is ok but the throttle response sucks. It could definitely use a bit more power/torque and sharper response.

Thanks
