So now that you have the tune... Have you guys hit the 'bahn yet?

One of these days my dream of driving my M3 there will come true

Yes we have! We need to do another day of running to get better video. I need to fix my GoPro, it's only recording 30 seconds then stopping. I will post the videos I have now as soon as I can.

Sounds like another one of those built up events that won't happen. I really need to simply invest in the BPM tune and do a comparo and dyno for my own peace of mind, or rather interest as IMO you cannot go wrong with either, especially with supporting mods such as catless and a drop-in plus some 95 plus octane fuel. Both are pretty sweet although I believe ESS throws in an extra 2 degrees of timing up top than bpm but whether or not that equates to more power I guess a dyno would need to be done and logged. This was based off logging data as ess hits 34 degrees throughout the top 1500 rpms or so. Not sure what bmw uses for timing targets

Ok, I will be uploading a video in the following hours. This is extremely rough footage but UBER and I will do more on another day when I can record more than 30 seconds of footage.

Sweet. I remember my GoPro was doing that too when I had the video size set in a certain mode.

Glad you're thoughly enjoying the tune... and there's no better place for it than Germany!

+1 on Germany......Autobahn.......NURBURGRING

+1 on the GoPro, I think I am asking for more than what my SD card can handle. I am going to buy a better this week.

I mean we all thank you for doing this but after all the hype why couldn't you have taken a quality camera and did a decent taping? Its so easy even with a cell phone to shoot HD video these days. Nonetheless who is the winner? WHy dont you give us the winner and let us stay wondering about "how much" was the win by!

It's 720P I am just saying that the video clips are short. Think of it as a sneak peek of whats to come. The end result is that I am OCD and wish it was better thats all. The video does justice. I had my GoPro mounted outside my car going +100. I think that is as good as it gets, other than being dark.

BPM is the car with the camera and ESS is the car beside me.

We did the same gear and same RPM (4500) for these runs. The first run was dead even off the start, as for the second, UBER had the jump on the start. Sorry that the clips are so short but my GoPro was acting funny. The videos still show a good idea of whats going on.



I am going to bed, I am sure I will wake up to a grip load of notifications.

Forget all the naysayers. The video looks great. Hopefully you can tweak the alignment of the GoPro on some more runs. But I am really jealous of you Autobahn'ers. Good on ya!

Looks pretty clear, as evidenced by the greatest popularity, Mr. Benvo easily takes it. Pretty impressive I must say. Time to scrap the ESS tune and over to Mr Benvo camp. Thanks for the video

I wouldn't go that far, but thank you.

I'm sure there are many happy customers on both sides.

Drawing conclusions before ANY evidence is provided about how close the cars were before the tunes... priceless.

Baseline dynos of both would have been nice as we all know there is a high variance in stock power output.

The only way to settle this to everyone's satisfaction is have a fight to the death cage match between all the tuners!

Also.....it's very close, and special thanks to STi for sending me all the latest info.(PM's)..like pics from his testpipes, video and sound from his car,and guys his car sounds...jesus....powerfull ...and the car pulls like it's afraid of hell !
Conclusion....there is a difference like we all see in the video,and the car from STi is faster ...not match,but it is !
So.....congrats....STi & BPM tune from Mike Benvo
And when the weather and temperatures are better,i will contact Mike Benvo(BPM-tune) and will do the same thing as STi....i will get the BPM tune !
