Can you hit the road and tell us how you feel?

You might need some time but:

1.) Are you burning tires?

2.) How's the gas consumption?

This thread takes me back to when I first got my 135i and got the beta version of the N55 Stage 1 for that car. I'll never forget the first time I put my foot down in the middle of 2nd gear.

If anyone's on the fence about a beta tune, I can tell you Terry's idea of a beta is more polished than most peoples' final products. I had the Stage 1 beta on my car for ~15,000 miles and then went to Stage 2 and never had a single problem or even a check engine light.

For those on the fence, it's really great.

There is a caveat though:

The CAN tool that BMS sells to clear codes works for the F30, BUT (and it's a big BUT):

There currently is no visual indication of anything when using it. Basically you plug it into your OBD port, and hold the button for 2 seconds, and your codes should be cleared - at least in theory, because you won't know if they actually are. on E90's, the gauges and lights work to indicate what's happening.

So your three options are:
- Wait until BMS updates the CAN tool to support the F30 the same way it supports E90's
- Use the CAN tool and hope to God it's working (especially prior to taking it in for service)
- Buy a BT Cable for ~$300 and use that software.

It is what it is. In my opinion BMS needs to do a better job with documentation and explanation.

Hmmm...interesting...

But I don't think it's anything major really. I would still get it.

Just waiting for winter to pass...

Definitely not a tuned N54 but there is still a decent gain. No issues here. No dyno numbers either.

I've had my stage 1 for about 2 1/2 months now and I have no issues thus far. Lots of fun though. My first bmw and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. There is a noticeable bump in power. Unfortunately I have no dyno time to back that claim up.
