They said yes if AA give them the credit.

As I got the tune the same day of the special I did ask if I can get it but for now I haven't received any positive answer..

I had a few questions. I read somewhere but can't find it anymore.

1) If my 2011 328i has California SULEV label, it already has a three stage intake manifold?

2) If 1) is true, will the AA stage 2 tune bring the power to the 330i level?

3) Someone said after the tune the exhaust sound was deeper, is this also true?

Thanks in advance.

The compression ratio on your SULEV is a bit lower and the exhaust is slightly more restricted. So, no, your engine is not the "same" as a 330i with just an artificial limiter on power in the DME. You can benefit from a tune but it will not magically bump your car up to or beyond 255bhp. I was a bit excited when I discovered that my wife's car had the 3-stage intake but soon learned the details. Finally, the AA tune does not change your exhaust sound.

How do I know if my car is an N51 or N52 ?
I guess it must be on the VIN ?
Can anyone point me in right direction please ?

If it is N51 there will be SULEV stickers under the hood.

Thanks CombatNinja!

I am always curious if a tune can just make the 328i exhaust sound a little deeper. I don't necessarily need the aggressive PE or aftermarket exhaust sound, but the stock sound is just lame.

Here is exactly what you are looking for then.

Just received my Simon.

Did an ECU read, but the size of the file seems small.

It's only about 798kb. is this right? how can I read it again?

Is it possible to purchase now, and schedule an install at a local vendor after 7/6?

my experience is that they didn't honor it and gave me the run around. I would say buy the simon tool and ask active to ship it usps. There is a high probability that you won't be charged duty/tax and it is only like $15 more shipping.

2 questions please

I have an 09 328xi automatic. Motor has a slight ping at moderate throttle openings. If I'm just driving around really not to bad. It's when I a little past half throttle say it'll ping for a second or 2 and go away.

Tried all the gas stations here in north jersey and it all the same.

Last week I brought it into the dealer car has 25 k miles, told them the issue, got into my loaner and left. Next day sa tells me they replaced vanos and all exhaust lifter .

In my paper work it states custom complains of tapping noise at start up. Not at all what I told them. This is why I'd rather not take it to dealership. I know its stupid but I kinda feel violated that they opened my engine for no good reason.

Second questions is there a dealer of yours in jersey to do my tune?

Thanks
Aldo
