Just wanted to say HELLO!

Hello to all! I own a 2006 E60 M5 and of course love it. I sold for BMW for 6 years and briefly sold for Porsche, my wife and I are die hard BMW folks...she has a 2012 X5 5.0 blk/blk with the full napa and every option she could get, very fun truck!

I've been reading through the posts and also used the DIY threads for changing out my Thermostat and my Spark plugs (thanks for the great directions!!!) I have been trying to get the mapping stuff working, but seem to be hitting a wall each and every time....Will someone be so kind and hold my dumbass hand through this? I couldn't get the NCS expert to get up and going, also had issues with downloading the e60 euro trans(please PM if any of you are willing to share whats needed with me)....someone please help this dumb brit who is stuck in Minnesota! I'm not well versed in software and such, but my wife is an expert and will help too.

Happy to be here!

Cheers,

Simon

FYI-Have a Corsa exhaust system, then have performance filters in the intake and removed the Charcoal filters, the cats are being pulled in two weeks. This car is a daily driver for the next two years, its then being gutted and made a full time track car for myself, wife and eldest daughter.
