I'm debating ordering Jim's to regain lost low end torque associated with failing VANOS solenoids.

Haha. If it was only that simple...

I'm still loving it. I went back to the track on regular tune with 5l of ms109 added to a 1/4 tank of gas and pulled a 11:84@122mph and 11:92@124mph .

Look forward to see if you notice any/much difference.

I'm out in France this week in my M5 and have done just over a thousand miles in the last 5 days. Had to fill up with fuel everyday! Been driving myself crazy looking on the BMW AUC site every day for a F80 M3 or F10 M5. Would be good if I could hang onto my E60 for a few more months so that's why I'm thinking about the FAMS tune to get some love back for the car. After driving my wife's 2016 Golf GTI I find the throttle response a bit lazy on the M5.
