Initially, I had spoken over the phone with the Tuner - Kevin, who had addressed my concerns that the Tune would be reliable yet very noticeable in power gains.

Upon reaching the shop and walking in, I knew I came to the right place. Just before my eyes through the shop windows I could see/hear a Ferrari being dyno tuned, in addition to an SLS, 3 BMW M5's, R32 GTR, as well as a few other cars being worked on.

I was immediately greeted by someone in the waiting area (sorry can't remember your name), who immediately pulled the car in the shop, and I had spoke with Kevin and Igor, who is very knowledgeable regarding BMW's, as I also had an M Sport Steering Wheel required to be Installed.

As I completed some work in the quiet office area, Kevin and others provided me with routine updates and the status of the car, without needing to ask, and had completed all the work in a timely manner of approximately 3 hours, and I was pleased with how everything came out.

Now for the fun part, I left the shop and let the car warm up, and did a few quick pulls getting on and off the highway, as well as from a dead stop. Immediately I had a grin of satisfaction on my face, while having the feeling of being thrown back into the seat and seeing how quick I had acheieved speeds. The gains were around 60whp/tq, totalling to 320whp/tq.

Overall, I'd highly recommend anyone with the N20/N26 motor, or even the N55 etc, to give Labworx a call and speak with Kevin and the others. I previously owned the JB4(Which gave me issues), and then downgraded to the JB+ tune for ease of use, and can honnestly say there was a HUGE difference, and makes the car feel as if I had a 335i instead!

Special thanks to Kevin, Igor, and the whole Team over at Labworx!
