So, for all intents and purposes its the same thing, it detects engine tuning. The following tunes are invisible:

jb2 (with special install)
jb3 (modifies fuel pressure)
V3 (modifies fuel pressure)
dinan (bmw knows you have it anyway)
Helix says its invisible, but Art's car threw the detection code, helix said that it was because his fuel pump failed
i saw a post recently that said AA now has new software for 29.2, but haven't heard anything about it

Thanks alot man..... So the MSD81 encryption has been cracked?
