That's just wrong.
Uh, I think that was my point.

Currently the dealer certifies vehicle (no indication that it's been tuned at base level dealer diagnostic software). You buy CPO. If you bring it in for warranty and they find that it has been flashed, you're stuck trying to prove to the dealer that you didn't tune it since you bought it. Guess who's going to win that argument?

I've been reading through the thread and haven't come up with a definitive answer to this question - is a transmission flash necessary to get all the power out of the Stage 2 93 tune? Without it is the transmission limiting torque or is the tune fooling the transmissions torque readings?

Not for stage 2 93 tune, they do how ever recomend it for the stage 2+ 93 tune

Thread has been dead for 3 weeks.

Question. I got a very good deal on MPPSK so did it on my 2017 340i (M-Sport / Track). Having lotsa fun with it. Car has 29K miles. Should I replace the plugs? Many of you folks suggest to do so with Bootmod3 Stage 1. I recognize that MPPSK is nowhere near as aggressive, should I do so? Please advise.

Next question. My 340i will fall off warranty next year and is destined for a Bootmod3 Stage 1 93 octane. Frankly because of most of you and the 66 pages or so before this one. Any news, rumors or rumbling on a TCU tune for the F30/B58 or have the PTF folks turned their full attention to the G20?

Follow bmw's service recommendations and you wont go far wrong.

I personally will be changing plugs every 10-15k max, imo they are cheap and an consumable, i am stage 2+ tho...

As for the gearbox map, Xhp are the leaders in that, i could be wrong but i dont think they (BM3) will bother doing a flash for the box, Xhp is regarded as the standard anyway and BM3 even recommend them...

Why does disabling ASD disable burbles?

What aggression level are the burbles on the Stage 2 93 AGG map with burbles set to OTS?

Yes, yes you can.
And you can adjust them independently between comfort/sport.

Hi folks! Finally convinced the wife to go for a flash. I'm planning on picking up bootmod3 with a catted downpipe from a sale this weekend. I also have the AP intake. Is this all I need for the Stage 2 93 octane map? Any changes to my spark plugs for this? I'm at 55k miles (will probably do then anyway at 60k).

This is also gonna be my first flash I have a windows laptop and will be picking up an enet cable with bm3. Is this all I need? Will I need the computer handy to swap to a different map if I'm stuck without 93 (which is rare)?

Thanks!

so with the 15% off i want to buy. BUT.
i extended my warranty in September for another year......i want bm3 now primarily so i can turn off cold-starts.
if i made this adjustment only, would it still void the warranty instantly?

the cold starts are doing my head in (i have mppsk).
