Strange.. someone on another thread said they texted me too and that I didn't respond.. Going to call verizon now, this is getting a bit frustrating. I'm not sure if it's related to be being on iphone 5.0 software, some sort of bug.

I have some time later to answer PM's and emails, sorry for the delay guys. There are some questions on this thread that I need to answer also.

There were a couple of things I wanted to check on my car in terms of coding, I'm going to really start looking into making the triple turn signal more than three blinks. My car is at the bodyshop getting the bumper drilled for front PDC, plus installation of the Blue Stripe PSW, and OEM Mirror caps, splitters, and rear spoiler. So I can't wait to see it again and start tinkering

Nope.. didn't get it.

Five more people told me today that I haven't responded to their texts. I just reset some iMessage settings and on the phone with Verizon..

Try again and lets see if its working.

Hoping to get through the PM's and emails tonight if time permits. Some exciting things are coming up.

Mike does remote coding from the comfort of your home. No need to go anywhere. Just PM or email him.

Hey everyone...

Very behind on emails and PM's again. Have been getting a lot of requests for updates to the DME software to 231E - which is no problem.

If you are local I can do a full update of the car to ISTA/P 2.46.3 which is what is currently installed at the dealerships nationwide.

If you are not local, I can update pretty much everything other than the navigation system (as this is hundreds of megabytes).

Another exciting service is 2012 Map updates for the CIC navigation system. Will post more pics and info on this later.

Stay tuned for more updates and please accept my apology for the slow reply on emails and PM's. Hoping to get through them by tomorrow or Monday.

Mike

I had the opportunity to work with Mike and get some coding done on my e92. Doing the work on the car was the easy, and least impressive part.. Mike is a true professional! We spent about 45 minutes going through the car and programming euro dsc and some lighting changes, and he checked all fault codes and history.
I hope we can work again to get combox functional, and as he keeps rolling out new updates!
I recommend anyone on the fence to just give him a call.
Good to get to know ya, Mike..

Thank you sir! Much apprecaited, and it was my pleasure working with you. Give me some time and I'll get all of the combox stuff working for you.

Today I spent some time coding a brand new 2012 X6M - the angel eye brightness came out amazing! Going to tune it in the next couple days - roughly 80HP and 100TQ more

Tomorrow I am planning on answering all of the emails and PM's (going to dedicate the day to it), sorry again for the delay. I have been slammed at work... but stay tuned! I'm in the process of hiring/enlisting a couple trusted individuals to handle the volume and work on more exciting things moving forward.

All PM's are responded to. Sorry again for delay.

I will try to respond to all outstanding emails by tomorrow, I appreciate everyones patience.

I will be going to Philadelphia and New York from the 16th to the 21st - those of you interested in coding or tuning, please let me know. I will make a post in the regionals section to let those know in that area.

Thanks!
Mike

Mike,

Wondering if you could answer/research a question for a fellow contributor. Willing to pp you for the answer if need be.

Q: For an LCI car are there different voltage values between US spec (red) and Euro spec (amber) turn signals?

Reason I am asking, is I have a 2011 and did the P&P swap but one of the amber arrays has failed just a few weeks after install.

Apparently another poster has had this issue on his PRE-LCI and http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=605463

Just thought Id' chime in here and post about my experience with Mike's coding. He performed some coding for my 2012 M3 about 2 weeks ago and it was pretty awesome. Brighter angel eyes, auto mirror fold-window and sunroof close, and more....everything works like a charm. Very professional and seamless experience I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get their car coded perfectly. Good job Mike!

I just got my e90 coded by Mike this past Friday and all I can say is he is very professional.

My shopping list included some of the following:
turning off seatbelt / key in ignition chimes
disabling misc iDrive accept / warning messages
window roll up / mirror folding with key
increased Angel Eye brightness
euro corner delete
welcome lights set to fast fade
enable BMW Efficient Dynamics display
added instantaneous digital MPG
MDM euro spec

Needless to say he got it all coded in less than an hour including a road test. My wifes e60 will be getting similar treatment very soon. Thanks again Mike!

Leaving New York tomorrow morning and heading back to LA. Thanks to everyone that came out in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York - it was a pleasure meeting you all and making your ride more enjoyable.

My apologies for the slow reply on emails, didn't have much access to it here at the hotel and was a week behind before I left. I will certainly respond to everyone when I make it back to home base. More exciting stuff coming up -

My latest Performance tuning software for the M3 has been an incredible success. I focused heavily on VANOS tuning on the top end, and the difference is huge. End user flash tools will be available soon (same exact tool as eVolve), I'm excited to offer this and you will all be amazed with how the car feels. Tuned an E93 M3 convertible while I was out here and it felt like the car lost 500lbs (in a straight line at least!)

Stay 'tuned'

Mike

Hi Everyone,

Please accept my apology for the delayed response and rest assured that I did receive your email/PM. I have a lot of exciting new things to share but am trying to catch up to speed first.

Sorry about the delay and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you need immediate answers please feel free to call me as I can answer questions on the go.

For now I leave you with a teaser pic of 'bench' flashing the DME outside of the car. I always wanted to program it through OBD-II in the comfort of my own home for testing purposes It's just a quick thing I built in a few minutes, going to make one with legit harnesses from the car to mimic the cars wiring exactly. This way I can test changes in other modules, etc..

Thank you,
Mike

Hello.
I am looking in to getting a combox and 6NR retrofitted on my 09 e90 m3. I was wondering if you offered these services.

Either reading this thread or clicking on the Coding List link in Mike's sig will answer that.

Absolutely. In fact, I just finished building version 2 of the retrofit harnesses. Waiting for my shipment of combox's to come in from Germany. I also built a new activation harness for those that are retrofitting the CIC which is much less bulky and designed better than any other ones out there

Stay tuned for some updates.. I have work piled high for the next week or two, and am behind 300+ emails and a few PM's. After a couple of weeks, my schedule will be quite a bit more free as projects I am working on are nearing completion.

Thanks everyone for your patience and I promise to respond to each and every inquiry.

There will also be the launch Euro Sport Labs as soon as the development is completed. I'm very excited about it - a full range of products, services, and retrofits will be offered.

Cool. I read up on the subject and I think I have a better understanding of the process. Really looking forward to what's to come.
I sent you an email a few days ago... I think sunday. I am guessing you haven't got to my email yet... my email address is idscjun@gmail.com
I understand your super busy and I don't mean to nag but please respond when you get a chance.
Thank you
