It is expensive, if they could offer this for 1 000$ (hand held device and the software) I would buy this...

The power curve is nice and safe.

Group buy anyone? Summer is comming fast, a simple no headache 50 whp bump would be nice.
I might be wrong but I believe the reason that this has not brought this up is that it is not compatible with the N55 cars. I've talked to Active myself and they said the only way you can flash our N55 cars is by sending in the ECU.

When did you talked with them? This hand held device seem fairly new. I agree we dont have all the answer on their site.

I cant figure why it is so long to gives us hand held solution, this waiting is killing me. This isn't rocket science... The golf R is out, it seem a factory freak, I should have bough an R. II heard people are doing 12s 1/4 milles with reflash and upgraded fuel pump, it wont be funny soon when VW boys come on the street with reflashed R when our 135i have no aftermarket support. ffffckkk I will buy bigger sunglasses for the days comming ahead...

Per Andrew from active auto works you have to send the ecu in. If you read the fine print it does say you have to sen in your ecu.

My local tuner shop must have misinformed me. He just got the active license and told me I could do it via handheld.

He may be right... Can you tell me who is your local tuner?

Can someone call Active autowerk and ask (I dont speak english). If so we could start a group buy.

The N55's ecu is tuner protected unlike the n54 which only BMW can access.

Sorry guys sending the ecu to us is the only way for now until we crack this.

It's going to be end of summer or end of the year. Dinan hyped their tune a few months before it was released, Cobb would also do the same if they were close.

Garage List
Got a chance to talk to the guys at Cobb during their grand reopening. They never said a specific date. I got lines like, "Everyday we are getting closer. I can say that everything we've tried to do so far, we have been successful at.", "The N55 is at the top of our list.", "We are aiming for early to mid spring. Worst case is going to be summer/early fall."

At one point I mentioned that I heard a beginning of April release date. There was an awkward silence for a moment before one of the guys said, "We are getting closer every day." *shrug*

I really think they are working hard on the N55.

Cobb never Hype about release date, they are independent in the market and they are respected in the industry. They are low profile and they stay away from pissing contest we often see on forum between company.

However I would like minimal feedback from them, few pics with a N55 on the dyno, few words. i dont ask for a specific date or secret technical info.

I still think mid spring, early summer is possible.

I hope Cobb comes out with something soon - they're late in the game and losing customers..

Well, at least Dinan came out with their stage 2. I'm waiting to see if there's a stage 3.
