Evolve solved my problem

many thanks to Evolve, I finally can enjoy driving my m3.

My car has K&N filter and a full Akraprovic evo exhaust, i first installed Tectech stage 2 . The car had little gain, huge flat spot and pull backs between 1.5k-2krpm. There were no support provided by Tectech to resolve this issue.

Today, finally I got my evolve stage 2 with overrun. We have it flash into the car and transformation is amazing, exhaust sounds deeper (very nice) and the car pulls smooth throughout the rpm. The car now has great mid range and very strong top end, pulls much much better then the last tune.

Can't wait for my DCT cable to arrive for DCT upgrade and maybe cat-less for some flame throwing fun with the overrun.

Many thanks Evolve.

Yes Techtec is real BS. They don't even reply their email.

Question... I installed my evolve tune a couple weeks ago with no issues and love it. I'm running the catless xpipe from macht Schnell. Just this morning my engine/emissions light came on. Is this normal and what should I do...? I'm certain it's an easy fix.

Cheers

Please email me the screen shot of the fault code read with evolve-R.
(this is done by clicking on the diagnostics tab and requesting a fault code read out).

I will then assist you from there.

Look forward to your email. (salman at evolveautomotive dot com)
