I would be worried about x3/5 not capturing the sport responsiveness that 128i has stock,these are SAV/SUV tunes, nothing really sporty about them besides optimization for low end torque
Yeah I have a buddy who does that end of it. He currently does a lot of the coding and euro SMG/engine tunes for the E60 M5.

As for the responsiveness, we will have to see. On paper it has the highest US horsepower. If worst comes to worst I can revert it to stock.

I do know when I get Evolve onboard I won't be doing anything to the throttle mapping. I never could stand the sport button in my M5, and I'll be damned if I want it on all the time in the 128i.

Works for me.

I really like those stock wheels, they really remind me of the E34 M5 M System II or throwing star wheels.
