Going from SC back to stock?

Anyone done this? I have ESS VT2-575 on '08 E93. Trading for '13 E92, but dealer obviously wants car returned to working stock.

Any problems or issues I should be aware of?

Dealer will be doing the work----dealer also put the SC on. I am NOT any good with tools.

Also, for those interested, look for an ad soon as I will be selling the SC. Going to stay stock on new car for at least a year or so. I want to make sure the engine, transmission, etc. are ok first.

Thanks!

No problems whatsoever, they will also need to flash the DME back to stock.

Otherwise, you're good to go.

Thanks guys. This is what I assumed but wanted some experts to validate. Time to do the conversion and get the 2013 in the driveway.

Tom, after I have had the car for a few months I will want to do the ESS tune. If I'm going to sit out on FI for a while I'm glad there is still something I can mess with.

Thanks again.

I would just hold onto the s/c kit if you have any plans of doing it again in the future.

I would keep the charger. If you sell it and buy a new one (assuming you will stick to ESS) you'll be out 2-3k. If you keep the charger in the garage, it will be a kind of motivation/reminder of the things you are missing

I was going to but I leased the car this time. No car payment for three years, $15k back in cash and getting at least a few grand for selling the SC was too good to pass up. So I'm thinking I will do a simple tune since I don't want to screw up my warranty.
