Actually won't have time this weekend, but the charger is in transit as well, so might see if I can hook everything up Friday. Do you know what's the redline of the tune?

redline & speed limit removal are optional. I opted for speed limit removal, not revs though. Think the limit is 7,200RPM if you opt for it

Good to know, the extra 200 is useful for someone who's too lazy to shift <-- that's me .

I'll wake the neighbors if I start ZZZ up now

Also, not sure if battery is fully charged as ignition was on for over an hour last night copying the ECU. Don't want it to die on me while upload new file as then I'd be in a world of shit.

Will take for a drive tomorrow evening then and load it up.... can't wait

The upload is much quicker, but all those fans and errors do scare you a bit.

+1 Evolve say the download is a full ECU backup, while upload is just a few mins.

Come on, that's no excuse. I did my ESS at work whilst my car was parked on the street. .

Evolve seems to copy each block of memory in the ECU, regardless of if there is data on it. Takes an image it would seem.

I'm not expecting dramatic results like the tune on my 135i. Will also take a while to adapt.

Anyone know a good road to test the speed limiter removal?
