I'm glad I saw this before I left..

I will bring the ICOM then, that's the only way to do the SMG tune safely.

Landing there tomorrow around 4PM.

It's possible

If interested please reach me on my cell at 310-488-2418. I will be on Vashon island today but will be at the Marriott Waterfront Friday and Saturday.

I did two E60 M5's this morning and right now on the ferry. It's pretty cool!

Edit: ill be at the hotel tonight too if that's good for you

Mike is on point with coding. Got my seats coded. Extremely Knowledgeable and cool. I'll do business again if I need something in the future!

Just got my tune and will post a more detailed review shortly. To sum it up, wow! As mentioned in other reviews the car feels stronger now down between 2-3k and just hauls a$$ beyond that. And I haven't even hit the power button yet. Power delivery is also smoother.

The sharper throttle response in normal mode feels perfect. Had a 2hour drive home in traffic and highway to really test it out. Whoever said you can't stop driving after this tune is absolutely correct.

This is not super charged power, which is exactly what I was looking for. Something that amps it up for DD as well as some spirited driving. I can't wait to test this against my buddy's stock m3 for a full comparison.

Mike, it was a pleasure meeting you. Felt like a car date because as soon as I dropped Mike off, a fellow member picked him up.

Renton rider, your ride is looking good! Love the color.

Just got the Stage 2 - Mike is awesome to work with!

One of my big gripes with the stock M3 is the lack of mid-range torque when driving around town. The tune provides a lot more torque in the midrange and the torque curve is even smoother all the way to redline. The extra power is also very apparent.

Can't wait to start it tomorrow morning and have no cold start cycle!

Thanks,

Khalid
