Several more questions.

With the stock 328i, the normal D drive mode is lame, throttle lag and gear shift too soon. With the DS (sport mode) the throttle lag is reduced, and the gear holds longer, though improvement can still be made obviously.

With the AA tune, I assume the D drive mode is more lively and sportier, but what about the DS mode? Is it even different, or useful anymore? Also what about the manual mode?

The stock manual mode has the unpleasant gear shift delay. Does the AA tune improve on that too?

Both modes are adjusted to be more sporty.

In manual mode you will notice a more responsive pedal.

Could you answer my question about future updates and pricing for current users? With the JBx’s for 335’s it’s easy to pull the old software/hardware and sell it to help offset the price of the new version. But with us N52 folk, we can’t sell anything. So paying $400 the first time then another $400 or more for a modest update sounds painful.

Do additional maps (say we get intake / exhaust later and want a remap, but purchase the combo TODAY with stock everything) cost extra?

All I have is charcoal delete w/ K&N Filter lol, is this worth doing?

Its definitely worth doing.

We can just send it to you when you first purchase the combo if you do decide to upgrade later you can just flash it into the ecu.

Andrew,

Do you do anything special to the tune for a secondary cat delete? Also, for the offroad tune with a primary delete would the smog checkers still see a code?

Hmm, I'm really really tempted to get this..

Do you have dyno results of a stock 325 vs 93 tune vs 100 octane tune?

Basically, you got it. You will be able to flash between stock and tune. Also, in the future you can purchase a different tune and flash it to your car yourself.

i got a 06 328xi with dinan exhaust, air intake and K&N airfilter,

I am about an hour from Turner Motorsports in MA , so do I contact them regarding this and what info do I need to provide them with. I am not super car savvy so don't want to get there and then not know what I want, or is this pretty straightforward with prebuilt maps ready to go.

and when would a dealer visit/service result in my flash being deleted and what would be the cost to have it reflashed by the dealer, you said in the thread just the service fee? can i assume the labor on this would be 1/2 hour or less. ?

thanks

Hi Andrew,

When will this be available for the N55? I have a 2011 335i sedan. I assume the premise of this would be similiar to the Cobb Accessport?

This is great because I always wanted to get the AA tune but the dealer was too far from where I lived..
QUESTION: I have a 328i coupe.. do you guys have a tune for the n51 SULEV which comes with the 3-stage manifold?

Hey Andrew, i was interested in this Simon tool as it seems to be a good bang for the buck. So how do i start, do i need a tune and then the tool? How do you get my base settings? I'm local so i could drop by, i would like to load a good flash now with a stock car then later on be able to add more parts(intake, exhaust) into the tune by using the Simon tool, is this possible? Thanks

Stop by and we will get you set up


You download your stop map and save it.

Intake and exhaust usually doesn't mean you a new tune the dme will adjust.

The n55 unfortunately has tuner protection on it and will require you to send your ecu to us.

Pm if you have any more questions as this is a n52/n51 thread only.

Can you speak to the long term effects of the tune?

Will it adapt over time and become the way it was from the factory (stock) or is your flash replacing code that bmw put in and it is a different DME?

How will the tune affect long term reliability and performance of the N52? Just curious.
