Turner is willing to do $1500 for the Hartge tune when i emailed them. Still a lot of money for a piggyback system but looks like the only option at this point.

You can NOT compare JB to Hartge. Hartge is in a completely different league as a Bmw tuner in Europe

What impact do these piggyback tunes have on fuel efficiency and the different drive modes?
In my experience, fuel economy is unchanged. Although, having the tune makes it much more tempting to be more aggressive with the throttle, which in turn will decrease fuel economy.
