What are the best gains from software tuning

on an E92? I have a 2013 E92 DCT. I have heard of DCT tunes etc...

Any recommendations?

There are a few tuners. AA, ESS, Evolve, Frank Smith, Bren Tuning, BPM, and some others I cannt remember at the moment. None can add much power with a tune alone on 91/93 pump gas over the latest factory software.

I'd say roughly 100hp...give or take 100hp...
Don't forget to add 50hp from activating the secret M Sports Package button on the M3...

I thought it was only ZCP that added the extra 50hp?

Any recommendations?
Ask the tuners if they write their own tunes and what they modify and why.
Any fool can advance ignition timing to dangerous levels to achieve gains.

Better to get a tune where most of the gains are obtained elsewhere, e.g. cam timing and where only prudent gains come from ignition advance.
