2009 BMW M3  [5.00]
I cant believe they would sell this car without M mode, thank you Mike Benvo!

Just Had Mike do the MDM retrofit, Tune & code my M3. All i can say is why would BMW even offer this car without MDM? Needless to say but what a diiference this makes!

Operating system now 240e not sure of the benefits but i like to be up to date!

As for the tune, holy shit my car now has tons of midrange and sounds a bit more evil then it did before! runs like a raped ape Mike might as well of wore a lab jacket as he dug into my tune like a scientist!

Throttle response even in Sport+ is completely manageable now where before in just sport it was so twitchy made it hard to drive smoothly.

and then the coding, what a dream it is to not have all the warnings every time i get in it! Seatbelt warning gone, Idrive warning gone, key in ignition only chimes 5 times then stops.

I did so much coding i dont know where to begin to tell you about it.

Euro MDM is how this car should come from the factory, before with DSC on and it shuts the party down before it begins, DSC off and the party boils over before the real fun starts, now with Euro MDM it gets just enough out of hand and DSC barely steps in to keep it all in check and i mean barely. I can now get the rear to step out just enough to point the nose into the turn and power stays on like you would want.

6MT launch control, Set mine at 3500rpm as mike recommended, wow is all i can say. Effortless launches like I'm John Force

Efficient dynamics display, well i didn't buy an M3 to get good gas mileage, but with this info on the display and doing as it suggest, I can gaurentee i will get the most mpg possible!

Instant MPG readout, makes you realize how bad this car is on gas the lightest press on the pedal and its 10mpg, stick your foot in it and its 6mpg!

LCI coding, nothing to talk about here, but my new tail lights work without faults!

DVD in motion, the kids will love this.

Welcome light tweaks, angel eyes now snap on instead of ramp up. works as the new cars do.

Windows, Moonroof close with the lock button! Mirrors fold up too

8 shortcut buttons, never used the am/fm one anyway

Doors unlock when key is removed, no more double pull, Sweet!

Windows finish rolling up even if door is opened

Wipers finish cycle

Hazards double blink euro style

changed low fuel warning to 1/4

Overall had an very professional experience with BPMSport, not one issue and i was in and out in 5 hours including having a lunch break. (i needed one more then Mike) Mike definitely knows these cars, i would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone near or far!

1000% satisfied!!!

Good choice of coding and tuning features. I agree that the tune does wonders for the car in the low and mid end. I don't think I need to even mention what goes on in the top end

Absolutely!

Forgot to mention I opted for a 4500rpm limit when cold, it gradually climbs up as the oil temp goes up!! full rev limit is not available til at least 180˚

Sorry for the dumb question, but what exactly is 6mt launch control? Does this mean that via the new coding you can floor the throttle and it will max out at 3500 RPM before you drop the clutch?

Exactly, mash it to the floor and it will sit at 3500rpm or where ever you want & as soon as you hit 1 mph it removes the rpm limit.
