    Yes, they are locking out the tuners as what % of customers will opt for BMW's own performance software? Additionally, Audi and Merc know the same engineers and have the same ECU sources. You think that is really the issue?

    Yes, in case anyone hasn't noticed BMW is going full force with the M-performance parts lineup. They are spending a lot money marketing it and will protect it as much as they can.
