Best Tune for E60 M5?

So Ive been debating on if I should get a tune done on my car and have basically decided Im going to. Now the more difficult decision is which one? Ive read multiple threads so I figured I would simply ask for peoples opinions including vendors/reps. Who has the best tune for a daily driven car? I am looking for increase response, power that is put down smooth. Not just looking for the best HP gains, although I like HP gains, but I want the tune that gives me the best overall performance. I appreciate anyones thoughts, especially those who actually have a tune done.

Thanks
Mike

WallyM5, did they contact you after your purchase, to find out what Mods/Gas you have, in order to maximize the tune? I did the order, and got my sales receipt, but haven't heard anything. I've been on the road, so haven't been too worried about it yet, but was curious what the process was for you.

Thanks!

RMS ( Race Marque Systems )

Contact Osh, he will open up your ECU, solder stuff to it, tune it so it revs up to 7000rpm every morning.. and advance your fuel timing so much and so fast, that your M5 will feel like it's got twin T88 turbochargers installed!

The only small problem you may encounter is just a blown piston! But that can be replaced no problem.

I'm gonna do the Evolve-R tune as it's got all the stuff to load it from your own home. The price is nice too...

First you have to down loader your ecu to the down loader and then send them the file at that point you tell them what you have mod wise and they up load the tune to it via email...I think and then you up load the new file and it's off to the races. My shows up tomorrow....I will let you know exactly what happens tomorrow. But I its pretty strait forward.
