If Active Autowerke insisted to re-flash and install new BMW engine parts to cover modification in order to blame BMW NA for defect, isn't that illegal?
BMW NA should read this post (I'm sure they wil) and press charge them.
It sounds like very unethical business practice from a big reputable BMW tuner.
I'm really sorry to hear your story and thanks for sharing.
I hope AA steps up and response your post since they're also member of this community.
PS. I made a PDF of your post just in case mods delete your post for any reason.
