Post Another happy BPMsport tuned M3!

Writing this to give props to Mike Benvo for another happy BPMsport tuned M3!! I have been driving with the tune for the last week and as many of you on here, I am thoroughly impressed. The car just Pulls!! All the way to 8600rpm! I made a total of 5 runs against my buddies tuned/ modded EVO X and beat it everytime. I don't think I would have beat it without the tune honestly. The euro MDM is a whole different animal also. I can actually slip the ass end out under full throttle without traction control stopping me. The coding features were the added bonuses that make me fall in love with the car all over again. Even just something as simple as deleting the amber corner markers in the headlights, and unlocking the doors when I turn the car off makes the world of difference. The whole process was painless, Mike is a genius, I want to download his brain. I never thought remote tuning would be as easy as it was. The whole coding and tune took about 45 minutes. Simple. Now all I need is the DCT software and I will be good to go! I will add to this mini review once I get the DCT tune and had a chance to drive with it. I can't wait!! Thanks again Mike!! Everyone get the BPM tune, you will NOT regret it!!

Good stuff! I too am waiting on the DCT software. This should be a huge game changer on the driver feel. The euro MDM with the tune is insane on the DCT, I feel like my car is going to slip out from under me on the gear changes, I love that feeling!

Definitely..I feel that the tune matched with the DCT software is going to be a perfect pairing. I still feel the clunkiness under deceleration, I would like to get rid of that with the software. Can't wait!

I have also the BPM tune and the DCT coding ,in one word....WOW ( i need to learn how i control my right foot !)
The DCT coding is also amazing ,shifts are very smooth even when the car is still cold,and when she is warmed up and i go for a S5-6 the shifts pushes you forward and are match stronger in the shift feeling and shift speed is even quicker,actually it is a... must have
Mike ...(Mike- Benvo) is the man !!!

Cannot wait for my car to come back from ED so I can do this!

Does it remember the last mode you used? I read that it remembers your "S" settings now, but does it start in D or S, or does it remember your last used position (turn it off in D and the next start is D, turn it off in S and next start is S)?

And to be honest.. i have not paid attention
But this weekend the weather forcast is better and will keep my eye on it !

Haha that's promising if you haven't paid attention.

Keep me posted. I'm living through everyone else's car ownership until they give me my car back!
