X6m gear and ecu damage

Hi I have a2012 x6m with vorstainer body kit at design down pipes and eisenman race exhaust and ess software update the sad news that the car broke down after 15000 km from installing the ess soft wear . Talked to ess they said The ECU is for sure not damaged in any way. This is simply not possible and you can send it to us for testing and we can verify that it works normally if needed. To damage the transmission is possible with extreme driving and a lot of power, this is user error and abusive driving normally or manufacturing defect/low transmission oil level. Even on stock power it is possible to wear out the stock transmission if driven extremely hard. This is however not a common problem as these transmissions are very strong if used normally. Do not tow heavy loads at full power though.

So I want to ask you guys what might have caused the gear and ecu to get damaged put in mind that I don't race my car , but I do admit to pushing the m bottom everytime Iam in it

What's the point of asking for help when you the OP goes mute after asking ?
