question about getting evolve tune for cel light after install akra full exhaust

i just order my akra full exhaust system and evolve tune from cal@sonic ms. my car currently has dinan performance tune, do i need to go to my dealer to reflash to stock ecu then get the evolve tune? or i can do everything by myself? btw, im a newbie, dont have any experience on doing this. also, i wont let my dealer do the evolv tune since i dont want them to know i get evolve tune and void my warranty. so, what should i do after my car get reflashed to stock ecu, cal@sonic ms told me something about go to buy a battery charger. i didnt understand clearly. could anyone please tell me something specific, then i could do this by no mistake.

thank you guys.

We always recommend you have the very latest BMW software installed as they sometimes have updates and at some point they may want to update you for warranty work.

Just to confirm to everyone - if you are reflashed by the dealer, you will need a new tune. Your old tune will not work on the car anymore. We need to then create a completely new tune i.e. you read out the new ECU data, send to us, we tune and return just like the original.

As far as battery chargers - we always recommend them when doing anything to an ECU. Time wise its not necessary but certainly a strong recommendation just to ensure the voltage doesn't drop too low whilst writing in.
