    The tune is an OBD2 flash through OE Tuning dealers. If you are local to SoCal we can flash you at our shop in Van Nuys.

    Austin, Texas. I think they might have affiliates in Houston and Dallas.

    Best to call and see what they could do. They have a flash loader for certain models maybe for you as well.

    would be nice if they had an 'at home' hand-held solution... I know i would pay 'extra' for that, hence why I haven't done the flash route either...

    I am sorry that we don't have dealers in your local area who own the required the tools to flash your vehicle. You can always send in your ecu for tuning?

    Well, see, that is the killer for most owners. First, you have to take off theintake manifold (so I have been told) to remove it, then send it, wait until it returns, then install it. so for a daily driver, you are without it for a week. And this would have to be done everytime BME flashes the ECU part of hte DME.

    The BMW tune looks a littl more viable.

    +1 to this... I understand you have to 'pay' to play, but for most of us the N55 is our Daily Driver... I personally utilize mine 6 days a week and that last day, I may or may not use my X...

    I personally could drive two hours north to get mine flashed, but then have another two hour drive south to get home. Not worth it in my opinion, specially if I have to take the X in for service and BMW reflashes the ECU... Now I have to devote another 4 hours out of my schedule to get it flashed again... I'm military, I can't up and leave from work to get my car reflashed every time (it's bad enough when I have to miss a days worth of work just to get BMW to do anything on the X)... Hence My push for a handheld solution... I think the flash costs what, 695 through a participating flash loader... Why not charge $995 and provide a hand held solution... I know i would pay for that convenience at that price (hell I paid that for the Procede when I had my 335, without a second thought)

    That is the problem, no one has cracked the N55 OBD II port encryption yet.

    You do realize that the OE tune is an OBD II flash... The only reason they suggest removing your ECU and sending it in is because you don't have a local tuner that can flash through the port... If you had a local tuner with the flash and cable, you could leave the ecu in..

    Yes, but it is not a hand held. It would be interesting to see how they got around the OBD II encryption.

    even if it was just software on a laptop with an USB to OBD II connection would still make it worth paying $1k for... So one could do everything at home instead of having to deal with a tuner.... But then you have copyright issues (unless they programmed the software / hardware to work only on 1 VIN), much like COBB does or the procede recently started to do... Unless you purchased the rights to have more than 1 VIN for a small fee (like $500 additional dollars per VIN.) I can only speculate... I would really like a hand held at home solution, but until that time comes for the N55, I will stick to the JB3...

    The BMW tune is mild junk.

    Hey, there are inconveniences in life. If you want to make it happen you can though.

    Like you said, flashing with a laptop is acceptable. Removal and sending of DME is not. I am just not that desperate.

    BTW, if they have broken the OBD II encryption, they are the only ones who have, but I hear Dinan is close.

    BMW PPK may be junk, but it is warrantied junk.

    Warranty is the only appeal. Just a cash grab tune for BMW.
