I'm 100% sure those generic tunes you are buying are also the results of tweaking a car on a dyno and saving the changes so your statement doesn't make any sense..

Dynos are useful in developing the tune, however, the end result is about how the car actually feels on the road. The dyno is a means to the end, but it is not the end in and of itself.

Was your car at the Northeast Exotic Car Show in 2011? If so, I saw it there. I was there in my e92.

Yes I was there with some folks from the BMW CCA. I hope they have that event this year. As you may know, they cancelled it last year. Have you heard anything yet?

No worries, I still want to see your Lime Rock Park Edition M3. I have loved Fire Orange for the M3 ever since I saw the M3 GTS at BMW M HQ in Garching in that color.

My M3 coupe is now in production! I decided to stay with the black interior and DCT. The only port installed option will be the black kidney grilles. I felt that it would be a nice contrast to the Melbourne Red. Now the wait......

Haven't heard anything. It was a great event. My guess is that if it hasn't been scheduled by now, it is not happening. I was in the BMWCCA area also.

So I am probably ordering a Lux set this week. I am just not sure as to which unit to buy. Both the 5000K and the 6500K look good.

Have any of you guys had experience or thoughts on either option?

Savage I bought a set of M tech AE after having numerous different sets. Can't convince myself to tear the headlights apart and off the car for the led rings. These m tech are really bright.

I like these the best so far but I have not had the latest version of Lux so can't compare

Got the 6500k back in November to me they have a slight color to them sorta purplish blue. They look great very clean looking but differently missing that factory feel.

Never had experience with the 5000k they should be a cleaner white.
