I have a SBM engine tune and it made a pronounced difference, especially in lower RPM's which normally feel flat.

Good to see some QLD support for M3's. Would recommend locals jump on the opportunity of Alex' being in town! If only he could bring his s/c M5 out too!!
Yes, tunes are something that will be available in a week or two. At the moment they are being done in house at Gintani but now a USB>OBD cable is being released to allow anything from a CEL removal on install of a full exhaust system, full ECU tunes, DCT tunes and supercharger engine remapping and back to stock at any time. The cable is licensed to the cars' VIN and allows owners to tune or modify at will. The DCT tune improves performance in the 4th and 5th power band and makes gearshift much snappier as well as some RPM changes for launch control keeping in mind the changes in performance when a Supercharger is fitted.
The cable will fit a laptop PC running Windows XP or higher to allow owners to make changes at will or have multiple revisions of a tune.

Alex does amazing work and anyone wanting a tune on virtually any vehicle can book on advance. During this period tunes will be done at a special price.
