This may be a dumb question, but when talking about clearing adaptations, are we talking about automatic transmission (my 328i is a 6MT, so these wouldn't apply to my situation) or engine adaptations or both? I'm really not sure what these adaptations are (as you can tell from this question, hehehe...).

Thanks.

Cheers!

Me too!! The weather is FINALLY starting to eek it's way into actual spring-like temps. I'm getting my new MRR GT-7 rims/Michelin PSS tires installed today. Just waiting to receive a cable so I can clear the adaptations, and then I'll pull the trigger on the tune.

Cheers!

I just got my new (used) 325. Looking into buying the Simon tool and was wondering if there were any package deals for that and the Stage II or specials coming up soon. Very interested in doing this and the intake manifold mod ASAP.

Bummer. Well here's hoping for a Memorial Day sale on a tune/Simon combo!

Does the Simon tool work to clear adaptations?

You need to specify the 3 stage tune, not the std one when you buy it.

From what I have been told, when you send in the file that was read from your ECU, you tell them that you're planning the 3-stage intake in the future, and they'll send you 2 tunes. One for pre-IM upgrade and one for post. You flash the ECU with the first tune, and then, when you do the IM, you flash the ECU with the 3-stage tune. This is what I will be doing.

Cheers!

See now I'm worried about my tune. When I went and told them I have a stage 3 intake manifold they told me don't worry they are all the same.

If you already have the 3 stage intake, you probably have the latest and greatest that was tweaked for the manifold. How long ago did you get the tune?
