Anyone in the Chicago area with GIAC Tune?

I'm interested in learning more about the GIAC tune for 135i (N54), anyone in the Chicago arae with that tune? Comments/experience and where you had the flash loaded would be appreciated.

Thanks!

no but WSTO has an ESS tuned 1 series. Fairly similar. Give them a call or PM. They will also be carrying GIAC soon if not already.

ya, go to WSTO and check out Johans. 135i - He is a nice enough guy and will let you drive his car to test out the ESS tune,

Nope. From what I've *ahem* heard, GIAC has a fairly limited number of authorized dealers in Chicagoland. But maybe more are popping up?

Oops sorry, forgot this was for GIAC... someone was asking for a good fabrication shop the other day.

Ended up with some Cost (too much $$$) and Schedule (Could never seem to get a date for the work) issues at PP Power so I waited for a tune, I'm happy I did beause 2 weeks ago I installed COBB AP and I'm very happy.
