M3 E92 and DMS Automotive

Hi

I am Swiss and considering a software-upgrade from DMS Automotive. I know that the powergains are quite small for cars without turbochargers. Nevertheless I am tempted to get the upgrade to approx. 440 BHP (quoted by DMS).

Does anybody has experience with this upgrade? Every feedback would be highly appreciated.

Thomas

An increase of 34bhp from a remap alone is impossible, while DMS has a decent reputation in the UK, I'm particularly hesitant of "tuners" who over-claim improvements. Even if DMS managed to extract that much more from a remap alone, I would be concerned about long term durability and the reduction of safety nets.

I have used DMS a few times and they did wonders to my 1M and will be using them for my E92 M3 in due course. But I will combine the remap with a change to the exhaust centre section. I have driven a DMS remapped M3 with exhaust and it is a decent improvement over stock. Definitely more mid range urge. Power up to 460+ with the exhaust (removal of front cats and 200cell sports cats in the centre) and it feels like it. DMS recaps are safe too - never taking things to the edge.

Big thumbs up for DMS from me.

DMS great for turbo 911s RS6 etc but I went with Evolve for my E92 and I can absolutely vouch for everything about it. Process / results / people are all brilliant.
