My X5M is Middle East (Dubai) spec'd. Would your tool work with the 91 octane fuel here?

I had x5m truck for 2+years and time for little more fun.
for tune shopping lists: ess, evole, Active Autowerke, Velos Designwerks.
in my reserch active auto and velos offer little Flasher tool so i don't have to carry notebook to flash back to stock.
since there are no dyno charts for velos and my friends had a good experience with aa supercharger. i gave a shot with aa tune.
after ez install and 2 power cycles, fun start.
my thought after 400+ miles and few launching:
in normal mode power was almost good as stock m-mode or between m and normal mode
no more lazy driving feel,so i don't have to put transmisson in sport mode often.
before tune i got like half second intense feeling when i do launching now i got like 2second
now i can say to people my truck is fast.

last words for tune "money well spent"

Andrew- Just bought a 2013 X6m and am interested in your tune. I have a stock car now and will be adding akropovic sometime. I assume your tune does not alter any of the transmission parameters. Is that correct? I had a bad experience with a Nissan GTR tune where the power was up but the transmission was totally out of sync and the car didn't seem to know what gear to be in. Also, does the handheld store the stock parameters of my car or just use a default stock settings? Thanks. Nigel.

I'm new to the forum. I just bought a 2011 X6M and wanting to do something to it for more power and more aggressive exhaust note. I do not want to spend a ton of money doing it and I do not want to void my warranty. Any suggestions???

Well anything you do will technically void your warranty so there is always a risk. It basically comes down to how can I make my modifications less risky?

I would recommend our tune with the use of our simon tool. You may flash your car yourself back to the stock settings at anytime. Once the car is tuned there are no wires or electronics to be seen by praying eyes.

Hi, I just talked to people at Autotalent and also oceanside guy, they recommend me to go with the normal software instead of the simon tool because they said that I might have a chance to get the program "incorectly" for my car if I do it myself with the simon tool.

I am planning to do the tune on site ASAP. so, any input or opinion on the on site tune Vs. the simon tool? I am very new to this kinda thing. And how's everybody's experience with this AA tune? any problem at all so far?

Thanks guys
