I got Alex's GTS DCT tune before and just recently I got his ECU tune. He's a great guy.
His tune works very well. My car now feels smooth and stronger throughout the revs.
Definitely an A+++

Just got this tune from Alex and Autocouture along with ACM test pipes and the thing hauls ass! I 100% notice the low RPM power where without it felt as though the car was bogged down. Once I hit 2500-3000 RPM, the car pulls like a mofo, especially with M mode activated.

So far I have ACM Muffler, Test Pipes, Alpine DCT and ECU tune and the car is unreal.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I have his tune and had a big name tune on one of my previous e92. Alex tune is at least on par or better than tunes that cost twice as much.

But what you get from alex is not only the fantastic value of his tune, but also his dedicated support. He was literally one text away whenever I needed help. And I needed help more times than I should have.

You will not have this level of support from other big name tuners. And Alex texted me to see if I wanted an update every time there was a breakthrough in a new file.

Anyone on the fence will have no regrets. He truly treated me like a customer.

Got my tune today, 93 octane and cold start delete. Car runs great, better pull but much smoother. It's hard to explain.

But as others have mentioned, the customer support is just outstanding. He connected to my laptop and we talked on the phone, probably took a half hour start to finish. He explained to me exactly what he was doing and walked me through returning it to stock if need be.

If you're on the fence about this, just do it. I don't think you'll be disappointed. For the money it's a relative steal.

Another vote for Alex. His GTS DCT tune is just epic. Car should have come from factory this way.

Alex is an absolute Gentleman from my dealings with him in the past. If i ever do end up finding an E90 M3 Lci first thing i would is the coding and tune from Alex. Hope all is well buddy.

I have it. It sounds awesome, but I had to flash a different map because it made me drive the car in a way where I was getting into trouble and getting MUCH worse gas mileage. Like ~100 miles per tank.

Based off my my own personal tune with alex with burble and also having had a gintani tune they both burble but at different levels.

My setup on my car
AA Test Pipes, Stock Xpipe, ACM rear section

Alpine tune - With having my secondary cats the burble is minimal and quiet when letting off over 5 k with a nice pop in between shifts (which i love).

Gintani Tune - Having secondary cats burble much more noticeable when letting off over 5k.

From customers experience with different exhaust options

car 1 - Full IPE front section (no cats, no resonators) with ACM rear section
Alpine - Burble very noticeable not overpowering with nice crisp pops between shifts

Car 2 - Borla X pipe (i believe its primaries gone, quad resonator) Eisenmann Race
Gintani - The burble is very noticeable with refinement, maybe one of my favorite exhaust set ups ive ever heard on these cars. I think my next set up.

Car 3 - Test pipes, Stock everything else
Gintani - Burble quieted down but still noticeable

Both Tunes are excellent, can't go wrong with either
