Flash Software Pricing?$$

Hello,

I'm still in the market for ECU SW for my E92 M3, and it seems that the market for this stuff is pretty well fixed at the 995.00 price range. Has anyone else found a better deal out there that I'm not seeing?

Thanks!

I would highly suggest to take advantage of our Halloween 20% off special on all Active Autowerke ECU tunes. We just tuned a 2011 E90 M3 on Tuesday

Eh, this requires the removal of the ECU to be flashed correct?

If so I'm not interested in this approach, as i would want the ability to revert back to the original tune prior to having the car serviced. For that reason I'm only interested in ECU tunes that are issued with a hand held flash device that I can do at home.

If you guys can do this, that would be great, you're right down the street from my office and I've already met Mike, hes a good guy!


Thanks!

With Evolve and ESS as your only options, I have yet to see them cheaper than their advertised price.

We actually do in-house Active Autowerke ECU tuning. You do not need to remove your ECU. We hook up directly to your OBD port and tune the vehicle. This is a custom tune tailored to your specific modifications and vehicle. You will not have the ability to revert back to stock on the fly, but if the dealership for some reason updates your ECU, we offer a one time flash back to the tuned file for free.

Unfortunately the ECU in the M3 is a difficult beast to crack, nevermind it being constantly updated by BMW in an attempt to thwart us. The costs incurred as well as the extended amount of testing required means the prices are little more than the easier ECU's that are available - That and the fact you receive a remote tuning cable also that can read/clear DTCs as well as do other tricks in the future.
