We can supply the cable or if you're local, you can just make an appointment to come by. For 99% of standard coding, a battery stabilizer is not necessary.

Building my coding wish list for phase II of my E90 M3 ownership... Very cool stuff.

A few features of the engine performance software I wanted to share here:

Launch Control Assist for 6MT cars:


Triple/Quad turn signal Activation:


Cold Start Rev Limit Reduction (to prevent abuse when engine is cold)


And finally, retrofitted Start/Stop just for fun (I don't recommend it!):


More to come soon. I just finished assembling the remote tuning cables and those will start shipping this week. More updates to come soon

For those of you that want to get the update that prevents a thief with a key reprogrammer from stealing your car, I can apply that in roughly twenty minutes remotely. It's bizarre how BMW announced a fix for customers in the UK, but nothing for USA or Europe!

You must have caught me at a really good time!

Sorry to everyone (else) for the slow replies.

Wanted to share a couple more videos with you all:

Hi Mike!
Great videos! and you're offering an amazing product here,
I am seeking M3 231EE update as well as most of your options, I also want in on the group buy and ready ASAP. I have an appointment at dealer booked for Tuesday to update my software unless I hear from you.
I'll need remote coding and the e-flash cord sent to Canada?

I also just met Mark here from VCM auto in Victoria BC. He has the e92 Dakar yellow AA supercharged killerbee..... he only has good things to say about you so that's all I needed to hear.

Lets do THIS!

Thank you for the kind words, I really appreciate it!

If the dealer is willing to update your software, by all means, I would let them do it. Not a bad idea to be on the latest software version. As far as the 231E update, I would hope that they would update you to 240E since that is the latest software

Whatever they do, I can update you to 240E if they put anything earlier in it, so you'll be on the latest DME software either way.

Let me know after your dealer update is complete and I'll send you the cable(s) required to get started.

Thank you and have a great weekend everyone. I will be slaving away for the next few days building 100 cables for tuning and updating the shipment of navigation systems that just came in from Germany to 2012 software and 2012 maps. Exciting stuff, I know Only the best for you!

Hi Mike,

I sent you a PM a couple of days ago regarding some coding possibilities.

Thanks.

Mike,

Back from the 'Ring, ready to tune.

I have a service appointment on Nov. 9 so anytime after that. Interested in the group buy but happy to pay full fare if you come by my place in El Segundo. I would rather do things in person than "over the wire". I'm just old school that way.

I'll call you this week.

Stephen

I'm ready to roll.

Hi Mike,
I was wondering if you could code an Ex m3 to play storage music that stay in random, even u turn car off and DCT shifter to go into D not into 1.
How about on 2012 x5, by waving your leg under open the trunk and able to close with key.

Hey everyone,

We have some exciting stuff coming up soon. I will try to get to all of the PM's tomorrow, sorry for the delay.

We've got suede wrapped center consoles and some more goodies lined up for you .

Also.. on emails, about 2 months behind. I will respond to each an every one, there has been very high load lately. Today I was coding a car in Australia and in Canada while Tuning a car in Texas and on business calls at the same time. I do pride myself on responding to inquiries quickly, but current and previous clients are my first priority. Once my developers are finished with our new eCommerce system and fully functional website with manuals, tutorials, videos, media gallery, technical info, etc.. I will be in a much better position.

Group buy for tuning will be launched in the near future, before Xmas for sure. I promise you it's worth the wait! We've been sending a lot of the tuning cables out lately with nothing but fantastic reports back.

Good to catch up on things, I've been sending emails since September with only one reply thus far, I hope it's a good sign that you do excellent work.

Thinking about moving on with another option for now but keeping up on things just in case, anymore details on the GB?

So sorry! I've got an endless list of emails - 400+ that have stacked up since September. All PM's are answered.

The group buy will be launched in the next week or so. Let me know your name and I will look for your email and respond. I will try PMing you - absolute best way to reach me is via phone/text and I will respond pretty much immediately. So feel free to give me a ring, I am around on weekends too.

Once our new site is launched all of the outstanding emails will be taken care of. I'm doing by best. I will try PMing you although you might have to make four more posts to enable that capability.

There is a lot of cool info/pics that I've been meaning to post, so stay tuned. Most of the tuning cables are built, tested, and ready to ship. Here are a couple teaser pics: `

Edit: It won't let me PM you. Give me a ring at the direct line in my signature.

Sorry to all of those that have emailed with no reply. I've been answering current customers through email but haven't had a chance to get to other emails. Please call/text instead for immediate response.
