I would do the new bootmod3 through pro tuning freaks. You can use their maps or go with a custom flash. There is a thread on it with more info.

DINAN may also "Void" factory warranty as well (only if failure was directly attributed to "tune", then ONLY that aspect of the warranty would be "Voided")...theirs just "Covers" in the event manufacture doesn't.


No they won't.....DME/ECU is carefully separated then put back together. Only heard of one tuner (Southern CA) that drilled, caused a shit storm. No educated, reputable tuner will EVER drill the DME/ECU


EDIT: +2 for bm3 . Several talented/capable tuners near you...some of which are active on this Forum

I think it's depends on dealer you go to. My dealer is kind of a mod friendly... they promise to keep my car under warranty as long as any of engine mods are from Dinan and installed by them.

Also according to them if damage caused by Dinan, they responsible for repairs or replacing a car. if it's BMW's fault it will repaired under warranty

Since you're in California Dinan will be the least hassle because you won't have to remove it to pass smog. But for ppl here who want to run their engine at its limits, a tune like JB4 is best.

I would just go for the MPPK if I were you

AWE exhaust sounds great. I'm biased as I run the same exhaust lol.... trust me sound never gets old

For more information on tuning options and BM3... check out http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1321857

A list of authorized dealers on there. I have JB4 now but will be converting over the the new and improved BM3 platform. It's an option, but remember if you are concerned with warranty it may effect it.
