Since this thread doesn't really apply when it comes to my "looks good" statement there was no need to post it.

But just for you...looks good!

That's a pity "looks good." My goal is a genuine one. I'll keep working on it.

My pleasure. I have learned so much from this forum that I wanted to give back and help others. Once you get your tune, let us know what you think!

Sounds like a plan. I will post video, not judging my lap time though. As for your tune, I can feel a huge difference in everything now that I have been able to drive it a bit more.

The car just feels smoother in every way. I noticed when I was doing some family driving in D mode. That it was just a different animal! I can't wait to get a few more miles on her and really give a review. I think my best bet is to do a few laps on the ring with her then drive my buddies stock on the track. That should help me feel between the two since I am new to the M world.

I am also averaging 2mpg better since I got the BPM tune. I attribute this to the mid-range power increase and less need to rev high while taking off from lights. Averaging upwards of 17mpg now!

I can see how that could happen, because I have to downshift less.... but I went from 18 to 15mpg last tank. Having way too much fun on the backroads with my new found power
