    Also this statement needs some attention Click here to enlarge I am J.J. Lomoriello and my shop is Lomotion in Poughkeepsie. I have been working night and day to get the "Corvette only Shop" label to un stick lol. I do have my work cut out for me because my father started the business 27 years ago as a Corvette shop. Yes we are known for our expertise with these cars, but i personally prefer European and Exotics and for the last 11 years i have specialized in performance and maintenance on these vehicles. So what i am getting at is that my shop is not just a corvette shop and to be honest 70% of the vehicles that come through my door are not Corvettes. If i can be of any assistance to anyone please feel free to contact me with any questions. I am always here to help. Happy Motoring

    I stand corrected... Still... Can't justify 2-3 hour drive (4-6 hours round trip) for a flash, but for those who are local to you perfect opportunity/location.

    Totally Understandable. I do travel down your way a fair bit and i would be more than willing to come down that way to flash a car/cars. I am currently the only one in New York that has OE Tuning tools, my friend owns a shop in Long Island that i can use if that is more convenient for NYC customers.

    Thats awesome to hear, Hopefully others see this and realize the possibility exists... Still wish Jeremy would offer a handheld home solution...

    OE Tuning has a Flash Loader for home use as well. The Unit holds 10 Tunes that are Vin locked to your car. The Flash units are $400 extra. OE Flash units are available for a wide selection of cars not just Bmws.

    I forgot to mention the N55 still cannot be tuned via OBD2 with this product, however OE dealers that have OBD2 flash cables for N55 can flash via OBD2. These cables are dealer only.

    Why is that? I mean, why is it limited to (OE) dealers to do the OBD2 flash on the N55... Wouldn't it be easy to simply vin lock the cable, or device (laptop) that is provided to dealers, so that individuals could do the same at home?

    If it were possible to provide the same software to the end user, but you had to vin lock the software on the pc to only your vin, wouldn't that be a big selling point... I don't know... I'm just throwing ideas out there.. I would gladly pay extra for that, so I didn't have to drive to a dealer, or have the dealer drive long distant just to flash my car...

    Those are great ideas and it is something that is definitely being worked on now. Your totally correct it would be much easier, but unfortunately the cable that is N55 specific is not available to the public. Sending out a computer and one of these super expensive cables is a huge risk on the tuning companies end. In the past we have done that only to not receive the equipment back on time or the equipment was damaged. Tuning companies (not just OE) are in the process of working out a solution for an at home flash option. At this point it is just a waiting game. Until someone figures it out i will continue to try to go to whatever lengths to help get someone tuned, that is really all that can be done at the moment.

    Last Question I have...

    Lets say Customer A gets flashed by OE Dealer... Now lets say in a year or two (hypothetical timeframe) OE releases a 'At Home/Handheld' flash solution for the N55 and Customer A paid for the flash from a OE Dealer, does the Customer now get the Handheld solution at a Deep discount, or...?

    This could potentially be another selling point in the future...

    Side Question, you said the super expensive cable is a huge risk, so lets say it costs $695 for the tune, and the super expensive cable costs $500, well have the customer do a refundable deposit of $500 for the cable, to be refunded after sending the super expensive cable back, or if not returned in a timely fashion or is returned damaged, they forfiet half their deposit or all of it...
    So the question is, how much is that super expensive cable? If you can tell...

    We used to offer refundable deposits but past experiences is the reason why we do not offer that anymore. There isn't much room on the flash loaders to offer a deep discount but if one of my customers where in the situation that you described above i would sell the loader at my cost.

    The cable is over 4k. And possibility of not being able to buy more then 1 if you lose it once. I've used it. It's not a 2k CMD box. Highly sought after property at the moment and VERY few are allowed access to it. Most are still bench loading N55 DME's for a reason. A 4k deposit does not even cover the aggravation of trying to get another one if lost or stolen.

    FlyingX5 with all due respect for all the time you have spent posting and asking about this you could have drove to Lomotion many times.

    Why would I want to switch to a flash, so I don't have to remove the JB3 all the time whenever I need to go into the dealership for service... The two I use are VERY anal about seeing any modifications, specially tunes (piggyback), yeah I could switch to a different dealership, but location wise they are very convient for me, even if other people avoid them like the plague.

    Like i said, a 4-6 hour round trip is not in my best interest... (depending on how I drive). And being Active Military doesn't afford me the opportunity to just up and leave every time I need to get flashed... Plus if I need tech support, again, 4-6 hours round trip is Not in my best interest... And weekends are now out of my area of freedom, as my wife went back to work on weekends and I have to babysit my 20 month old... SO sorry if asking this many questions about it is bothersome, with all due respect..

    "Thanks for contacting OE Tuning. The tune is an OBD2 flash and can only be done by a dealer or you can send in your ecu..."
    That is also my understanding.

    Unfortunately not. Below is the response I received from OE in regard to the 2012 535 N55 tune. Click here to enlarge Very sad day for me. I loved the OE tune on my e60 535i... Keeping the car stock for a couple months is out of the question, I guess my search goes on for now.
    Hi Chris,
    There is a tune in development for the 2012 535i. The issue that we have atthe moment is that the car runs fine after being tune, but once it is turnedoff and back on it no longer runs. Please check back in a few months to seewhat we have available.
    Best Regards,
    Josh

    Rolling encryption code - the E60 550i's had it too. It can be defeated with some flash tools - they will have to figure it out on the 2012's.
