BPM sport stage 2 tune + DCT impressions

So after buying my used Akrapovic GT4 exhaust off of a forum member i decided that it was time to order a tune to get rid of the CEL and utilize the catless system. After much deliberation between GIAC, Evolve, and BPM i decided that BPM seemed to provide the best support (i've also known Mike Benvo forever since the E46fanatics days) as well as having the most up to date tune (240E) and lastly they offered a DCT tune.

So today was the big day when i was going to install the exhaust and flash the software, and after a long ass day at work i arrived at my shop only to find out the shipper forgot to include the Akrapovic tips and clamps (DOH!) i was a bit bummed however all has been resolved and i just have to wait a couple of more days. In the meantime i called up Mike which he said that i can run the stage 2 and DCT software in the meantime.

The process was VERY easy and straight forward and after i flashed everything and got into the car to drive the first thing i noticed was how SMOOTH the car felt. Holy crap guys it was buttery smooth i also go the servotronic tune which i think makes the car feel even better when it comes to making turns, etc. After the DCT tune the car's shifts are much more responsive crisp/clean when driving in D mode. So far i'm a happy camper and can't wait till i throw on the GT4 exhaust and let it rip! Thanks again Mike

Congrats!

Im thinking of keeping my car stock for a while but all these good reviews about BPM makes me want to pull the trigger on testpipe/xpipe with BPM tune. So tempting. And you're not helping!

The BPM tune I got for the GT4 is probably the best money I have spent on this car thus far. I ran the GT4 on the oem ecu for a few hundred miles prior to the tune, and everything overall improved after Mike's ecu wizardry. Power increased and the drivablility is as smooth as oem if not better. Smooth as eggs. I could not be happier. For those curious, the felt added power imo is a little over half the felt difference from going oem catted to catless GT4.

I wish there were more tune dynos and less impressions. My car feels faster after I wash it.

I am happy with my BPM stage 2 package as well. Unfortunately I was unable to do a pre and post dyno although I really wanted to.

I hear good things about BPM consistently, waiting on a group buy or a promotion to be available
