Anyone heard from Vishnu?

I made a post on their Facebook page and he said they were finishing up testing for the latest N55 update/release and that it should have been announced this last weekend. I see that hasn't happened yet.

I know, par for the course, but in the past the promises hadn't been so specific. Robert told me on PM that they had been actively working on it the last few weeks (instead of the usual... "busy with single turbo work, don't worry, N55 is next" replies I used to get).

Here in Chicago, we just got what I hope is the last round of snow... almost time to put the summer tires back on and it sure would be nice to have the update done for race season!

I like them to have an update too. but they don't care about us. They don't have time to sit down with one of us to do an update. they need one of our cars to do this. None of them have n55 to do so. Shiv does this as an hobby not career. He contracts himself to trucking company tunes there diesel trucks for better gas mileage that's where the money at not this. His staff are his friends they don't drive BMW. Sorry bro I speak the truth.

Unless things have changed, the shop/shiv owns a DCT N55 135.

I spoke with them recently here with a few questions, no mention of new maps. I was asking how Procede compares to COBB in terms of Stage 1,1+,2,2+...since COBB has unique maps for each modification. He response was that the Autotune adjusts the maps. Just use the map # for your application and it adjusts.

Anyone else still get constant SES lights? I am about to log again and send that to them. When I run in map 0, the light ends of going off, of course.

I have also been in contact with them, they said they were working on the maps and were hoping to have them this or next week. But I do know they are working on N55 for sure. There was also mention of an E85 map.

You can advance with the jb4 and much easier than w the Procede. I actually do hope these guys come up with some amazing things for the n55 for two reasons... 1. So I can sell my Procede for something other than giving it away ... And 2. Maybe worth installing it again

No hater here. I ran the procede in my 2 previous n54's since version 1.47 but realistically they never have any updates for n55.

I was just joking anyways bro. I'm running four capacitor to keep this peace of crappy from not glitching. Its sounds pretty crazy but its better then spending money on new tune hahahaha.

I'm happy with COBB in terms of them fixing my constant issue i had with the procede with hard shifting my AT... its also great to flash with ease and not messing around the engine bay pulling on wires etc... I can't wait for the Stage2 + maps and that is really where i need to be. Currently its a nice upgrade from stock, but def. not to its full potential so its not fair to make a comparison against my procede with full meth integration. I may miss it in the summer
