How will the tune affect long term reliability and performance of the N52? Just curious.
There are no negative effects as all changes are well within safe factory limits.

We are replacing values. Customers tell us the car gets much better as the car adapts to the new settings we inputted over the next couple days after install.

So the settings have no way of going back to stock by self adjustment? Do you also work on throttle response, anything else? Sorry for the novice question but im curious as to what exactly is done. Thanks andrew

It doesn't really bypass anything. It just changes the engine maps that's all. This new tune adjusts valvetronic as well as the throttle mapping, ignition timing and fuel mixture.

That is correct we are replacing the values not tricking the ecu like with a piggy back system.

Just a reminder Intro Price Simon Tool + Flash Ends Feb 12th.

The flash is finished and has been installed in about 10 cars so far.

We have received nothing but great feedback so far

This. I am very interested in this tune, but I come from the Honda tuning scene before I got my BMW. With Honda's (this was an 08 so nothing old) we had SO MUCH MORE control over everything, AND we were allowed to modify our own tunes, all for the price of a static flash here. Kind of discouraging, but at least tell us WHAT you remapped. What values were changed? Where does the power come from in THIS flash. That is what I want to know.

I am especially interested because I've just paid the car off, but I'm not sure I want to flash something that is just "better because it is" lol. Please enlighten us

Don't think its fair to put a deadline on the simon tool when 330i results haven't been posted yet.

We posted the 3rd gear results showing an increase in the higher rpms.

The tune is ready to go! We should hopefully have some 3rd party dynos soon
