" I have to comment that I can't wait to see what this same car same set up would do with a higher flow exhaust and different spring figuring this could affect spool and power significantly. Would I be correct in this? "

Good to know. With the BMS flash I thought some things where turned off so you didn't pop certain codes, which is fine for daily driving, but won't allow you to pass emissions. I could be wrong though, but my car failed with the BMS flash, that's why I tried to go back to stock. As long as this flash works, then all should be well. "

" I am not a business. Again, as a vendor, you should put your time and effort into creating a positive impression on the forums and not conducting yourself the way you do. Ie, trying to bully people who display an opinion of you that you don't like, when the appropriate thing to do would be to take the constructive criticism and try to better yourself.

as far as the defiv product I recieved, it was cut out with a band saw and looks like garbage. I also was not taken care of by the vendor when I stated my displeasure. So, upon seeing a review thread, I decided to add my review as well so potential customers are aware of the current product quality.



I'm conducting myself like a very classy individual right now, you should consider doing the same. "

I don't know if 'BS' is the right term as much as 'misleading' is the right term. "

You can say PM me for further details if you want to verify legitimacy rather than.

You could also provide quality content rather than post whore for example to build rep. "

" Actually, my opinion is very valid because it's the way you fall short on customer service, promise dates and the way you represent yourself on the forums that you haven't and will not get my business. Could have sold me a set of stage 3 turbos and the dual shotgun kit, but the above kept you from making $12000-14000. Oh well, not my loss.

and you forgot one thing. Yes you told him where to get them, and then you added a childish little backhanded comment to it. Just keep making yourself look bad and keep neg repping me for stating facts. "

" Looks like your lockdown kit came with the butchered differential brace as well. Although, yours looks even more jacked up than mine! I'm honestly shocked it was sent out in the state it was in. I didn't even bother installing mine because I was supposed to be sent a replacement, but that never happened. So, more than likely, I'll be selling my defiv diff lockdown kit if anyone is interested in it. "

Sticky created the thread Flash faux pas? Modern BMW turbo flash tuning capability is greatly overstated and not what you think it is.
" Sorry to put a damper on the parade but the flash tuning capability of the new turbo M models is greatly overstated. A couple of days ago results were posted of a flash tuned S55 inline-6 which is the turbocharged M motor featured under the hood of the F80 M3 and F82 M4. It is true that this car was flashed but after seeing the article BimmerBoost was contacted by a tuner who wanted to set the record straight on what is actually going on.

Nobody at the moment has real control of any modern ECU used in the turbo BMW's. This includes the F30 models, F10, F12/F13, F82, F80, and so on. The tricore ECU's in these cars have not been cracked. So what exactly is going on?

The tuners claiming the ability to flash are all using the same trick but they are not uploading their own custom tuned software. They are essentially flashing the same files that originate internally from BMW. Some of these files are just press files. Oh, you did not know BMW uses different software on cars they let the press test? Well, namely with the F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6 they do.

Why? The BMW press software will allow a higher margin for a CEL (check engine light). That means you will not see any of those nasty reviews saying the cars went into limp mode. This among other things like traction control changes or higher boost itself. Some tuners have even been using the BMW Competition Package software which is not real flash tuning. It is just uploading BMW's own file.

If anyone needs proof of this ask for a custom dyno tune for your F10 M5 or F80 M3. It is not going to happen, at least not yet. Tuners can play with the bootloader but if they modify outside of certain parameters the checksum fails. If it fails, the software will not flash. "
