I could care less about warranty. They will know regardless if itís been tuned and they want/need to dig deep enough in a catastrophic failure.

If you dont care about your warranty, then pay for a bench unlock, its about $250 USD + shipping, after that you can load BM3 or whatever tune you like!

Otherwise you will have to wait for someone to figure out a OBD2 way (without physical bench unlock) for the S58 ECU (It should eventually come) as it should be the same way for the locked S55 ECU.

You guys could mail Alex and see what he says about it. He usually responds quickly.

My issue with bench unlock is I am not mechanically inclined enough to take it out myself and I donít have anyone around here that normally works on BMW except for dealers.

Become friends or have a side chat with a BMW tech and ask him to come and do it after work or on the weekend. A lot of them do side work for a good price.

You do not need someone expert in BMW, You need someone with mechanical experience and methodical and with the tools. I took off my DME in 60 min without any experience in BMWs and I am an average DIY.

There are videos in YouTube, long enough, to see all the steps. I watched them several times and marked every plug and write every step I did. This way is easier to do it backwards.

You should flash back to stock if you are using your car on the road. Our tunes are for indoor/off-road use only
