To help you with your search, here's a list of tuners that I'm aware of that offer software upgrades for the M5. There are probably others but this should be a good start:

1. Dinan,
2. Evosport
3. Active Autowerke
4. RDSport
5. Kelleners Sport
6. Hamann
7. DMS
8. Powerchips
9. Superchips UK
10. Turner Motorsport

The list is by no means in order of preference or power gains; just random.

Please take the time to perform a search. It makes no sense to ask questions that have been asked many time before and expect an immediate response to your questions.

Have you tried starting with the FAQ thread at the top of the forum? Or using the Search feature?
