Question US or Southern US Module/ECU Repair shops

Is there any US based ECU/Module ( CAS/JBE/GSW/DME ) repair places any more?

I find in Europe and Asia, so many places that repair, flash, re program modules with AutoHex II and xhorse VVDI PROG. ANd now many places can't ship back to a US address due to US laws to keep repairs impossible.

BimmerScan in Southern California has been great in the past, though I am now waiting a few days on a response. Is there not any other place where you can get this done?

If I had $4k, I would buy the eeprom reader, flasher, adapters, cabling, and software, but for 20 mins worth of work to do once every few years, it seems quite affordable and a poor choice.

It's quickly soldering a few wires, reading some data, flashing, clearing, de-soldering, and confirm it's booting and fully functional

I guess like healthcare, I'll need to book a flight to to Poland or the UK to things done.

Folks in the pacific region seem to be far more capable..


Maybe a trip to New Zealand or Australia is in order...

Not US based but close enough in Canada. I've kept this place in mind for future use if needed.

A quick Google search also found these although I'm not sure if they're well regarded or not.

Thanks everyone. Unfortunately none of them do actual electronic repair by replacing chips/ICs/transisters/resistors/etc. They just do programming -- flashing bins, and matching ISNs, and use used/"refurbished" modules or need replacements sent in.

Bosch Germany does DME repair, but apparently US law prevents citizens from being able to ship for repairs back and forth.
