I had my custom tune from a local tuner, compare to ESS tune and Dinan tune I had before, it is way more aggressive and responsive. If some one has the equipment to do a OBD tune, then I think he will never harm your motor since he knows what he is doing. In the other hand, who sells you a tune but doesn't know anything about tuning would potentially damage your car.

What does that have to do with anything? If I knocked ESS then you could say that but otherwise there is a flaw in your comment.

the only flaw is in your comment... cause BPM is getting a lot of air time on this forum , it is your opinion that everyone is now buying BPM tunes and not Evolve, ESS, Dinan etc... One simply does not have enough data to make even an educated guess on the number of other tunes that people are buying or the true number of tunes that even BPM is selling. there is just not enough data to support your comment

I believe that between the major tuners there is not that big of differance in the product itself. I would be making a descion on customer service offered by the vendors.

1) it is my OWN opinion you are right.
2) I am basing my words on posts I have been seeing about how many people are buying and giving applause back to BPM.
3) we are talking about ESS and BPM, nothing was ever mentioned about Evolve, Dinan etc in my posts. Again ESS is a great company and I never said otherwise, I am just stating in my own opinion BPM is the route more people are taking nowadays when they are not super charging through ESS.

I think it really depends, we have seem many cars come back for a different tune that they were running and some of the parameters were in the area which we would never touch. Some tuners (like ourselves) want to be able to provide customers with nice gains, but not lose drivability and do anything that will potentially damage the customers cars. I guess its really on what you are willing to give up for the gains you will get

I can't help you out as to where to get it fixed but your comment brought back a memory when I picked up my car from the dealer. The sale manager said "Yeah, we'll see you back in here to repair the windshield soon". Too bad about the crack.

It is going to be expensive cause of the rain sensing wipers. But be careful cause not all glass is created equal, so the cheapest might cost you more in the long run.
