Group buy time :blabla: AGAIN!!

Here is the original thread which has a ton of info for those of you not familiar:

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=114617

Please read through this as it will answer many questions!

Retail pricing on this software is $1295. Introductory pricing on the software through m5board was $1149.

Here are the specs:

-Raised Rev Limiter to 8400RPM (optional 8500RPM)
-Removed Top Speed Limiter
-Remapped and Improved Engine Parameters, including timing, fueling, and VANOS operation
-Improved Throttle Response
-Improved Torque Management Programming
-Optimization for either 91 or 93 octane gasoline
-Ability to request a CEL delete in case of exhaust modifications
-Custom tweaking based on your current/future modifications
-Country/BMW software version independent - we can program EVERY car
-SMG will shift for you at redline in automatic mode. For those of you with a 3.91 differential, this is a huge benefit!

Some questions:

What happens if the dealer flashes my car and overwrites the ESS software?
We'll reprogram it for you free of charge, less any shipping!

GROUP BUY PRICING IS ONLY $1049.99!

Hey Mike:

So based on what I've read in your highlights, there is no HP gain?

Of course there is an HP gain!

We've seen 10whp and 10wtq improvement with just software alone (not even with removal of the charcoal filters). The dyno is posted on the site and on the old thread, please follow the links.

With software and other modifications (such as exhaust and carbon filter removal), we've seen much more considerable gains (In excess of 20whp, and 20wtq). For those with headers, the torque gain down low is even higher.

I forgot to mention that we also have header software for those with headers. :)

I have just purchased this software and would like to say that Mike is a perfect salesman. The ECU was returned back to me in two days. The service and attention to detail is superb. I have only had the software for 5 miles now but could say that the exhaust tone changed to a more controlled F1 sound. Also, the SMG operation is smoother by light years. Mike thank you for all your help and great product. Guys this is great product, trust me i am very picky and particular person. Thanks Again Mike.

Thank you for the kind words and I am very happy you are enjoying the software. Make sure to report back after the adaptations set in with your final word :cheers:. Once the software is fully adapted it is a world of difference. Try driving an M5 without software and you'll sit there wondering what's wrong with the car. The software is an evil weapon :).

Hi Mike...

I'm interested in getting in the group buy, but as I discussed with you, I'm waiting to get through the break in period.

Would I be able to pay first, and program later down the line when I get the mileage past 1200?

Thanks!

I'm definitely in, but Mike I can't pull my ECU until my car comes back from the BMW body shop (guy backed into my car while I was parked in a freakin' parking lot). Hopefully I will get her back some time next week.

Mike, I am planning on shipping you my ECU on Monday. Please PM me as how to arrange payment. I assume you just want me to send you a cc number.

Sorry, I missed this post.

I am currently going down the same path as you. My 08 M3 has 231 miles on it, trying to hit 1200 before bimmerfest so I can get my flash ASAP!

And the answer to your question is absolutely no problem. Add your name to the list.

Thanks for the reply Mike...What is the last day to pay to get the group buy price?

I live on a darn island (Hawaii)...not much room to put on those miles!

This group buy will go on for a week past bimmerfest I would estimate.

M5Drifter is finding room in Hawaii for those miles, so I bet you can too :).
