▀▄ eas | ESS E-Flash Performance Engine Software Tuning Solutions for E9X M3

ESS E-Flash ECU software is a result of extensive testing and exact calibration of ECU parameters to allow conservative performance gains on an otherwise stock car. The ESS software is developed and tested in extreme heat in the Arizona desert as well as extreme cold temperatures in Scandinavia.

About ESS Tuning
ESS was founded 1995 in Aremark, Norway, and a main contender in supercharging BMW Models, particularly the M3. ESS started out with a yearly production of 30 SC systems, in 2004 total production passed 1000 SC systems making us the largest BMW supercharger system manufacturer in the world. With a vast knowledge in supercharging, ESS's goal when developing a new tuning product is to enhance the performance characteristics of the car without compromising comfort, drivability, durability, emissions and fuel consumption under normal driving conditions.

E-Flash Description
The end user can select between tuned and stock software versions simply using the E-Flash system to load whatever version is required. Any future updates or changes in modifications can easily be accommodated through an emailed update, making sending ECUs back and forth through the mail a thing of the past. This system is compatible with the latest tuner protected ECU software and does not require a backdating of the ECU software to be able to tune it. Keep all the functionality of the latest BMW factory operating system and enjoy the increased performance of the ESS calibration.

Solid Foundation
A well-designed and constructed foundation that's engineered for your BMW is the only place to start. BMW releases updates to various modules throughout E9X production. Updating ensures you are up to date with all service packs/fixes as if updated from your dealership to the 240E base file. Providing a Performance Flash Tune based on the latest 240E build from BMW will ensure you get the best of both worlds.

The ESS E-Flash Cable can be used to program between stock and tuned, and can also be used to load custom files/race fuel files/updates received directly from ESS via email, eliminating waiting times.

Engine Diagnostics
ESS E-Flash also includes full engine diagnostic functionality and code clearing capabilities. Codes can be also saved to a text file for troubleshooting and/or archiving.
