TST podcasts are oddly entertaining and refreshingly conversational. Grabbing some popcorn for this one

My biggest takeaway from the interview was that SD learned BMWs retain reliability for 150k miles by keeping power gains to +25%. Add more power if you want, but long-term reliability will suffer.

Steve claims there is a tune for the F10 M5, but there is literally zero word on it coming. And the alleged upgraded compressors he did for it sounds like BS. He is extremely knowledgable, but he might be claiming too much here.
