considering that the euro smg program is pretty much free, would ESS be lowering their price of $500 for the tune to something more resonable? EAS charged a member $95

@ bsze the origional post was for a 'ESS E-flash Stage 1 tune' which is compatable with the smg tune. Can you explain why its a bad deal as I'm confused. I was in the market for a ess or evolve enging tune, I'm not really interested in a smg tune.
Thanks for your input.
It seems like mont M5 people already have an engine tune and are now getting a SMG tune while us M6 are playing mod catch up or am I missing something.
Thanks

I believe bsze is referring to the $699 that ESS charges for the SMG tune which is separate from this E-Flash Stage 1 tune.

The Eflash cable allows you to communicate with the ECU/DME as well as the TCU. This does not mean that if you buy the ESS performance tune, you get the TCU/SMG tune. This just means that you will have the ability to purchase the SMG tune without having to take your TCU out of the car like our past customers had to do.

The ESS is a modified euro spec smg software so there is a difference.
