==Velos Designwerks Tune==

I found a WIN!

I recently purchased and downloaded the tune by Velos Designwerks. As always Omar has provided excellent service getting me the handheld, the quick turnaround, and my BBK (whole other story)!

Instantly I felt my car was much smoother and quieter in the cabin. However, I was not able to push the car the first day since I didn't get to drive too much or far .

Second day, got my chance! I drive my car in D5 with the power on and the improvement is quite significant. I shall list out everything I can: More power, smoother throttle, more responsive throttle, more responsive engine, and smoother sounding car.

Pulling on the freeway felt way stronger that before and for Daily driving I feel the throttle is silky smooth and easier to modulate. I hit 85 before I even realized it and sooner than I was used to. Flooring in D5 I can feel a much smoother power delivery; no bad jerking. This make freeway passing easier.

With M mode (Programmed to S5, sport+, etc), the real fun begins when I can keep the gears longer myself and during my small section of road near my house, I was hitting higher speeds sooner. No more sluggish feeling (and I drive an E93!)

I knew this tune was good after talking to Omar, but it definitely beat my expectations!

Once again amazing service and products from the guys at Velos Designwerks!

Some notes: I got cold start removed (smoother starts and the needle doesn't bounce around, just slowly comes down. Way quieter too) and cat delete. So far so amazing!
