All of our software is developed for both US and Euro spec vehicles. 1M Direct Flash should be available on our website to order this weekend.

Coming from the Audi APR tuning world, I'm used to being able to switch between ECU programs by simply holding down my cruise control for a specific number of seconds (the flashing frequency of the check engine light lets you know which program you're in).

Do all BMW tunes require a full reflash every time? On my A4, I could discreetly put the car into stock mode while waiting for the service manager to pull up my loaner (in case I forgot to at home)

Not trying to rile anyone up. I'm genuinely curious.

After a few days of driving the 1M around with the ESS tune the car just completely rips! The low end torque is always there when you want it and you don't always have to downshift to be pegged into your seat! I had a couple of friends drive it and they were in complete awe! They think it will take down N/A M3's all day long now!

I am very pleased with the linear power delivery now. The car now pulls all the way to redline without what felt like a plateau from the stock setup as it approached redline. The "M" button functions as normal with improved throttle response, but be careful as it is completely addictive now with the added power!

Dyno's will come later this week, so I'll post some updates then!

Your buttdyno is already convinced it seems!

Can BMWNA "see" the flashes when they are hooked up to the port? I mean, can they see a flash history or does it just look like stock when flashed back to stock settings?

If you do this after re-installing the stock file you will not have issues with dealer visits. It is very rare that a hidden code is thrown with our software but to be 100% sure its always best to do a clear.

Going to the dealer with aftermarket software installed or hidden codes related to tuning. Most prefere to have the vehicle running stock software and code free when they take the car in for service visits.

I have been running the new file for the past 6 days and no issues! I know that some of you may be interested if there are any codes, I checked the codes with a code reading tool..... and zero codes!

Agreed, but there are other "tunes" (no names) that have shown several codes with even this type of reader.
