Bpc tune

I'm really interested in getting the bpc tune but I'm on a budget. I was wondering if there is a cheaper scanner than they one they offer with their tune that does the same job. (Installing the tune) any info would help.

I believe they may have a new tune (cable only) or a USB dongle that is less expensive than the Dimsport Units most people are using. Just call and ask.

Phil@BPC Hi what goes into the tune that the pricing is significantly more than the average price of about $400 or so?

I have the BPC - it's worth it. I would do the bimmerlabs tune first *it's free* as it's a good base to start with, then to the BPC tune. It has free upgrades unless you want the burble and the MILVS.

Ok cool Iíll look into that also thank you, does either tune help with throttle mapping or should I look into xhp? I want to make about the same whp as my g35x which seems doable.

If youíre an auto, I would consider the XHP tune. I donít think they have one for the 128i though.

Otherwise a tune would be a solid improvement.

Any direction to a bummer labs tune? Having trouble finding a link. Also would a bpc tune work on a 2013 128?
