Did my tune a few days ago,got the system fedex to me very quickly,every thing worked well,downloading the ecu,sending it to ess,downloading the new file to the hand-held,and then putting the new tune on the car was simple.

I had no warning lights on the dash after download,went very smooth,took it for a drive that night and found throttle response was alot better,then giving it a good go in sport was very good,lots of power,seem to me like more of a whoosh from the engine too if that makes sense.

I have a few questions though,i emailed ess and got a response but i am not sure if they know what i am trying to say so i might pm you tonypap in the next few days to see if you can help me if you dont mind,otherwise it is a easy and convenient way to do a tune.

We have used the ESS flash on multiple cars, and it is PHENOMENAL, especially when paired with a set of our downpipes.

How much Hp can you pick up from your tunes on the dyno? Are they aggressive or mild tunes? (AF ratio and timing) Interested since you can de-tune back to stock.

Highly recommended. I'm in AZ and So Cal (Carlsbad/La Costa) if you ever want to meet up and want a ride. I think ESS posted a dyno graph but I have one from my M if you're interested in the hp/tq.

Glad you guys like the software If you ever have questions feel free to email or PM me anytime. We have purchased a 550 and are working on F10 now. Hopefully we will have some news soon on that product.
