Mike Benvo feature coding: Positive review by a mechanical engineer

Just wanted to leave a very positive feedback for Mike. A little background about myself: I'm an engineer at a major car company, with emphasis on mechanical. So I have little to no experience with coding cars.

From the beginning I can tell you that Mike was very communicative. He always answered his phone promptly (whether by text or call). I screwed up on a few things (used computer that was too old for example haha) but Mike walked me through all the issues.

My car is now coded with all the goodies that I wanted, including Euro MDM. That's the good news. The bad news is that Mike informed me that I'm running 60E software (which is prehistoric). He even reset my battery adaptation.

Overall, I'd highly recommend Benvo. He's an honest guy and obviously an enthusiast. Give him a call!

Note: Mike didn't ask me to write a review. Just leaving an honest feedback because I wanted to.

Since my software level is so old, I'm highly debating getting a tune while I go for 240E level.

If the world is going to end this month, might as well right?
