We can remove the check engine light at the customers request.

Our flashes are through the OBD II port and program both sides of the ECU. Our flash kits are said to be released shortly, and will allow the customer to purchase a cable and use their laptop to upload our tune into their car. Although these are supposed to arrive soon, I am not sure exactly when.

Depending on the car and ECU family, it may require a replacement chip or chips or it may allow an OBD II program. Sometimes a BDM program is the only way to do it - this procedure is a bit more in-depth than the other two. In the case of the M3, the OBD II flash is the best way to go on the E46 and E9X models.
Hmm... Is there a date on when the flash kits will be available I might be interested in PC.. Will I be able to flash over my dinan tune or do I have to be flashed to stock?

We prefer that you have your car flashed back to stock. However, if that's something that can't be accomplished easily, we can put you back to stock and then tune you with Powerchip software. It's a bit more labor intensive when we are dealing with a file that has already been modified but we have done it hundreds of times.

They should be available in the next couple of weeks, I will announce it on the boards when it is.
