I'm guessing you're based in the US?

In the UK we have DMS & Evolve who both offer Stage 2 Custom tunes to around 750bhp (flywheel) & 700lbsft. In the US for whatever reason, the market appears to favour & only offer piggyback tunes & are several threads on here regarding them.

The main advantage as i see it is you can just remove the piggyback device when the car goes into a dealer for a service or warranty work.

That said, my DMS Stage 2 tune has been on my car for over 18mths & the Stage 1 tune was on for the 6mths prior & my car's never been pulled to one side when in the dealers for servicing or warranty work.

Personally, give the differences in stock power/torque of these cars, i for one would rather my car be custom tuned rather than receive generic coding/piggy back. That said, I've not heard bad things about the main piggyback tunes available but have heard a tune custom tune would be the preferred method.

We offer piggyback and ECU flash for the F10 ... ECU flash will require that you send your ECU for the first time only

For daily drivers, JB4 is still the best option

If you are serious about racing, i recommend JB4 + BM3 flash
