NRG - do you know if there is a way I can search for dealers for your remap in my area?

- As for RENNtech, they have a dealer in MD, but I haven't gotten word from them on the 335D remap.
Have to give you bad news. Mega-Speed only NA dealer is the JR Auto in ON Canada. They have a list of dealer network around EU one in Canada and non in US. Here is the link. http://www.mega-speed.de/english/chiptuning/distributor.html

In your situation I would go with RennTech or Evolve, witch ever is closer to you!

That has been my issue with everything. DC is such an anti mod crowd... I am trying to do some retro fit work, but have to drive to Atlanta or Jersey, remaps are only in Miami and Chicago (so far) and all the BMW dealers here won't do a single add on that wasn't with the original order of the car.

Small review will come when I'll put some miles on it.
I remember these guys when I was looking for tunes. Dude had a Polish sounding name I think. What gains are you expecting to see according to JR?

Personally I think most of the available D flashes will yield you similar gains. It's not like you'll get double or half of what's already available for US. I was mostly looking at the power delivery benefits with this flash over the piggy, not to gain. You can check on the Mega-Speed website. I think the advertised gains are around 55HP/75TQ for the 3 and 50HP/75TQ for the X. You'll love it in your 335d. No power after 2500-3500 RPM is a thing of the past with this flash. Tach needle just flies.

I need to get a Quaife LSD before any tune.

So, the equipment was supposed to ship the 26th, it's been almost two weeks now. Do you know when it's going to arrive?

If by some miracle DMS is able to flash via the OBD port I'd be all over this. I'll be surprised if it actually works out to be that straightforward but, stranger things have happened.

Spoke to Lenny and he told me that OBD II can be done but he needs the code to enter and NON ONE seems to get it decoded, once this is done then our cars can be flashed via OBD, otherwise BENCH FLASHING is the ONLY way to go, besides a piggyback.

The new flash is EXCELLENT you can feel the power of BOTH turbos. The car is to damn quick and eager to hit the road, Lenny gave me a HIGHER TOP end and across the band, I really cant describe the feeling but for those who have the RENNtech flash this new flash has STEROIDS!!

Would be nice to see some Dyno. So far I haven't seen independent dyno for Renntech.

Makes me wanna try RennTech as well Mega-Speed did load a modified map per MY custom request in the beginning with a much stronger low-end and a super throttle response. They did warn me however before doing so that the map going to be too taxing on the after-treatment. Of course that ended up being too much for my X lol. Resulted in about 20 or so CELs, momentarily plugged DPF and exhaust fumes inside my truck. They lowered the overall output of that map by 5% and is what I ran now

It wasn't a major problem, it was me asking too much over already R&D'd and tested calibration file. I was power hungry and got too greedy. They warned me that this is would happen but I still went ahead, and got what I deserved lol. If I would go for the already tested and prepared file this would never happen but...well you live and lern. Now I run a normally prepared file with a little extra low end power and throttle response for happy 3000ml.
