Got an email from Cobb that the v4.02 maps are out for the 1M, hope this means same or final versions of other N54 maps will be available soon.

For most people the else of install is the big selling factor, however the AP does have some very awesome features.
  1. Live data monitoring
  2. Data logging is all done on the AP
  3. Code clearing
And most importantly, on average it has the BEST data logs. The tune that runs the best is the best tune.

I ordered my Cobb unit recently and am waiting for it to arrive in the mail. I have one question that hasn't been answered on e90post so far (at least I couldn't find it).

I have already coded my car (i-drive warning delete, auto-folding mirrors, etc). Given that Cobb is a flash tune, will it overwrite all of the coding? Will I have to recode my car after installing the Cobb?

Thanks!

My understanding of what the flash overwrites is that it doesn't affect coding. However, that's just my interpretation. To get a final answer the best thing to do is to email Cobb tuning directly

Thanks Rader, I hope you're right. I'll likely send Cobb an email, but figured there must be at least one forum member that coded his or her car before installing Cobb that would know the answer.

You might try asking in the coding section, Cobb is a REALLY popular tune and I think a few people over there that don't post in the N54 section have it.

No -- My cars coded (key fob open/closes windows, side marker delete, euro hazards, angel eye drls) and I've flashed back from map to map & everything is fine. IF you completely uninstall & reinstall then I can't promise anything.

Wont affect coded cars since coding is not done in the ecu but other modules.

Thanks Enrita, this confirmation is exactly what I was hoping for.

Thanks Rader for the initial hypothesis, looks like you were right all along.

Any one have a hold of the beta meth maps? Getting meth installed Monday but not having it tuned to he Monday after. I would like to run meth this week and would also like the beta map to use as a base for the tuner!

I could be wrong but I think the beta tester maps are VIN locked.

looking forward to seeing your results
How's the Cobb been working for you?

I'm honestly not interested in an OTS map. To me meth is the kind of thing that needs to be custom tailored to your specific car/mods.

ASAP I'll be getting my ATP tune done and I'll be reviewing some ATR tunes from a VERY well informed and experienced member. Hell I'll be giving ATR a go myself.

I'm pretty sure the tank and everything is mounted in his car, but just turned off.

Yep it's installed and functional, I've just got it turned off.

Honestly, I'm not sure when I'm getting tuned. ASAP. There was/is a big between the ATP and my ROM. And yes, I'll be doing a meth and a straight 93 pump tune.

I don't know where you live but i know its in my "area". You are welcome to try the maps I've made on my car by using my AP. It will give you a good idea what the car can do. Mine is unmarried while I have some work done.

Has anyone seen numbers from a cobb/meth combo yet? I assume they will be around where the procede/meth combo's numbers are, and possibly higher with a protune?
