GIAC's Dealer Network is Rapidly Expanding! Find a Dealer Near You!

With the growing demand for GIAC software, coupled with our expanding platform options, we have been hard at work setting up new GIAC dealers. Chances are that we currently have an authorized dealer near you! If not, we are always looking to expand our dealer network, and are willing to talk with inquiring shops.

Feel free to PM me if you would like more info on a specific GIAC dealer, or if you would like for me to get you in touch with the owner!

Take a look at our interactive dealer map to find the GIAC dealer nearest you!

Still the same in the Boston area, but worth the drive in my book - love my Giac tune.

I am open to installing a personal use dealer in my garage if you want!

A lot of emphasis is being placed on expanding our international network. We'll just consider your garage a "black market" GIAC dealer

Still no dealer in Romania (despite the fact that there are shops here looking to become GIAC dealers).

Outside the marketing messages, is there anything really new from GIAC ? Like, 1M Stage 2 R&D work included in the 335i/135i maps (very easy to do - what is holding you back) ? Or the 18psi maps further development / beta testing ? Or a method for remote customers to update their maps ? Or upgraded turbo maps ?

By the way, I know at least one Porsche tuning company that sells an USB to OBD2 cable; the customer downloads a software, uses the cable to read the ECU, and sends the file to that company for modification. And then the company sends the tuned file back to the customer which flashes the software using the same cable. Just an idea for GIAC, if you truly want an expanding N54 market...

Also, how about a sale...all the "other" tunes are at $400-$500 cheaper than GIAC...

There is a tuner that uses that same setup on the N54, I think it's ESS but I could be wrong.

Much of the "new" things described were only mentioned within the last week or so. Unfortunately, the process time from R&D to market takes longer than this. I understand that people are excited for new files and expanding options, and while these will be available, it takes time to develop the necessary software.

We are certainly listening to any and all customer input, and are in the process of developing more offerings. Until these are actually ready for the public market, I can only continue to field these same inquiries.

I purchased the GIAC flash in Dec. 2011. Got stage 2 with 2 maps and flasher. My car does have the sport suspension and stock oil cooler and everything else is stock. I love the drivability it maintains. I've also had a 2002 Audi A6 2.7tt and a 2010 VW Passat 2.0t flashed with them. It's hard to switch to anyone else. At least until I have problems.

Great to hear! Didn't realize they made the A7 in 2002

Oops, A6

I considered it an A7 after the flash!
