lol, are there still people out there that actually believe if you flash your car bmw can't tell? even if you flash back to stock?

I don't think anyone denies flashes are detectable now but the current thinking seems to be detecting a removed JB4 is just as easy. I really don't think so personally. (nor does my BMW Tech who is a good friend)

There is no big heavy shipping of data. Its automated and detection is automated. Its the 21st century and there is internet. Piggybacks are just as detectable with FASTA reports. Inquire again with your tech. He should look into it.

Whatever it is you go with, you can choose to believe me or not or ask your tech to do a fasta report on your car and post it up on here for the sake of greater good.
