Ah!!!! DUH! Thank you for putting it together for me. I hadn't thought it thru and I had seen others with driving videos doing the same and always thought "why would anyone drive an M on automatic". Lol. But it makes sense now !! Lol

Here's a tip guys use the passenger seat headrest. Just squeeze the phone in any angle you want then you could keep both hands on the wheel.

Loading the tune took about 5minutes, I asked for cold start delete and 99ron UK which is 93.5 octane for US, and of course the limiter removed.
What I think of it: 😆😆😆😆
P400 is more responsive i really like it, it's a different car not like a new gti golf as they are build for low Rev fun where as our cars (e60 m5) are for top end, not saying it wouldn't waste a gti just saying that all these new turbo/twin turbos or for low end torque where most of us drive at.
But.... this tune seems to (to me) try and address that as I do notice it puts harder from a stand still and gears changes are some how smooth all in P400.
I also obviously done P500 and the M mode biggest grin on my face while doing so while trembling, car feels new again. I've still to put more miles on it so it adapts to tunes, but I'm am really loving this tune and no faults or error codes.

Oh one more thing, in M mode 4th gear seems like 3rd gear and whole car feels eager 👍😄

Well that's a welcome suprise as I really didn't think you'd notice much improvement on a n/a engine. I would go for cold start delete ( it's bloody loud ) and de limit. Problem is I have the Mondial warranty and I know with a map they would throw out any claims. It's going in for some warranty work in a couple of weeks so I might get the tune after I get it back as it's supposed to be easy to switch between standard and FAMS tune.
I had an Evolve tune on my E39 M5 and it onLy made a slight difference. P400 on my E60 is total rubbish, I can't even park the car in P400 as the response is so lazy! Quite excited about getting the tune.

Thanks
Simon.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

And thanks to all for the feedback, both positive and negative. There are a few things I'm almost ready to roll out to existing customers as well. Stay tuned!
