We are in AZ, shoot me a PM, Email or call anytime with coding options you are looking for.

I am another very happy customer with the ESS tune. My next step is the full RPI GTC exhaust. I am impressed that the existing tune is already set for the exhaust mod.

I honestly don't know how much time it shaved off factually, because so many factors contribute to improving your time, but I was coincidently 1-2 seconds faster that day. It could be the tune or just me having a "good day".

Net, love the tune and worth the investment IMO. A must have, especially if you're keeping the car NA and doing only engine / exhaust bolt ons. It just brings everything together nicely.
Good way of putting it.

ESS tune wakes the car up above 5000 rpm - the pull is amazing!!! I had a stock e90 M3 and the ESS tune makes a world of a difference- $$$ well spent in my opinion

There's a difference, but not major. However, just got the Akra Evo system and paired with the Tune, and boi does it wake up even more. Now I know what all the hubbub is with the Akra and full exhausts in general.
