My #1 suspicion is that it's been flashed back to stock by BMW with the new ECU software containing tune prevention.
Ok. By "original" I meant the software the car came with. And by "new" I meant "is different than what the car came with but still by BMW". So the "new" software is meant to prevent aftermarket tunes. Where do get such information?


Cheers.
