    Best tune for an E85 Z4 3.0 with an automatic trans?

    I need some help, I am looking for a good tune for my E85 Z4 3.0 Roadster, my car has an automatic trans with paddle shifters. I have found a couple companies that look like they offer a good tune but they are for manual trans cars only, nothing for the autos. The only other engine related mods I am doing is an intake, cat back exhaust and possibly some headersb ut exhasut and intake are for certain. Thanks in advance.

    From what year is your car? Z4's can have the M54B30 (2002-2005) or the N52B30 (2006-2008) engine.
    I'm guessing you do not have the 3.0si, right?

    great car for being stock! If it's an m54, there are some avenues. But to be frugal on hp and have fun with this, there is no practical outlet. I'm saying this in assumption its an n52. However, if it's an m54, and you want to keep it auto, you can make it almost as cool as the new ones. But do you want to undergo that?

    I see that you're from Naperville, IL. I'm from Chicago. I highly recommend you contact the guys at VS Motorsports. They are currently first and only authorized flashing site for Evolve Automotive. They should be able to hook you up with a nice tune done by the well-known Evolve Automotive.The only other company I'd consider for BMW tuning is ESS Tuning, but you would have to ship your DME out.You could save a lot of worry, anxiety, and money if you go to VS Motorsports and get it flashed there. PM me if you want their contact information.

    Hey Sticky. My understanding is that VS Motorsports has the ability to flash any car on site with Evolve Automotive's maps. I am not sure if they have a bench flasher or if this tool plugs into the car somehow. I haven't personally seen the flashing tool that they purchased from Evolve Automotive.

    But yes, they are the first Authorized Dealer and Flashing Site for Evolve in the states.

    That makes it way easier.

    You have a ton to choose from.

    OE tuning, Eurocharged, Active, etc. Any of those will do fine!

    Actually there are not as many as you would think. Most don't offer a tune for the automatic transmission for whatever reason. Hopefully Eurocharged can handle it and they are close.
