Active Autowerke| Flashing just got easier with the Simon 3

INTRODUCING THE SIMON 3 HANDHELD BMW TUNING PROGRAMMER

LOWER PRICE – BETTER VALUE – ZERO HASSLE




Before the SIMON 3, tuning your BMW required you to send your ECU to a BMW tuner - like Active Autowerke - to have the software modified/uploaded by expert engineers. The ECU would then be re-packaged and shipped back to you for re-installation. In short, it was AT MINIMUM a 3-day fiasco.

That didn't sit well with us. Fortunately, the days of helplessly waiting on your ECU to return are long gone - thanks to the newly released, all-new SIMON 3. The SIMON 3 gives control back to the user; to upload, update, and upgrade your BMW's software tuning. All you need is the SIMON 3, a laptop running Windows, and access to the internet for e-mail correspondence!

KEY FEATURES:

-BMW downtime is non-existent
-Limited to VIN# device is first used on
-More efficient & affordable than ever before
-Gain complete control over engine and some gearbox functions
-Able to be packaged w/more than 1 map for much less than prior versions
-More advanced in order to handle all error codes, both engine and transmission
-Answers questions about DCT tuning for more power & better driving experience.
-Easily reset desired tune after flash to stock or re-flashed with updated map by BMW dealer
-Erase current DME “adaptions” (DME will begin to read straight from new tuning maps and learn from there based on the driver’s habits)

Andrew, when will this be available on your website? I am going to order a 328i tune with the 3 stage and standard O2 sensor as well as the Simon 3. I would also like to use my $200 gift card from the Shirt Contest

Hey Andrew, has the tune itself changed at all? I installed mine with the original MySimon a couple of years ago. And if it has changed, do you still support the older flashing tools?

Long shot but could you cater for the N52B25 with this?

If so...
1. What selection of maps is there? Are these generic? Like economy, power and economy and power?
2. Where is the OEM map stored in the meantime? With you or on ones personal computer/laptop?
3. A rough estimate for price shipped to the UK?
4. Any images of your software interface? Screen shots?
5. Can tunes be tweaked say if you add a PE?

Thanks

Yes, but you would have to read your car and email it to us again.

Can you elaborate on this? specifically regarding the ZF auto transmission found in the 330i and 325i.

Thank you
