Anybody here had any dealings with Kassel Performance?

https://www.kasselperformance.com/

I'm considering them in deleting SAP on my 528 but If they're reputable (they seem too) it seems they have solutions for deleting SAP on our beasts.
TIA.

A friend of mine used them for programming a DME and M3 gauge cluster for his S54 swapped ZHP. He was happy with the service.

I used them to do the carbon cleaning on my 2008 Audi RS4. They are a top notch shop, and I would not hesitate to recommend them. I live to far away to use them on a regular basis, otherwise they would be my "go to" shop.

Thank you.
I send them a message through their website and through direct e mail. No answer and it's been few days. Not the best first impression.

I was going to say, why would anyone pay for that service on the MSS52 as all the info is already out there. Then I saw that they charge only 20 bucks so I guess it's worth it. Though the EWS delete is funny as it's a single byte change and they want 110 for that.

No problem, you were just trying to help. I had no idea there was another shop with similar name.

I'd appreciate if you point me out to that info because I couldn't find it. I'm not seeing that $20 service?
The well known O2 simulator that I've been using has caused me issues that I've chased for a year not realizing the true cause.
Also, the problem with simulator is that it basically tells the ECU that SAP components are active and the ECU enriches the mixture for that duration which can't be good for cats.
I'm trying to to get rid of the SAP completely, basically like some Euro cars which don't have SAP to start with.

I clicked your link and found the S62 and it had the price options. Here is the info on what to edit if you do it yourself.

Secondary Air Pump (SAP) Delete Howto [Archive] - BMW M3 Forum.com (E30 M3 | E36 M3 | E46 M3 | E92 M3 | F80/X)

If you run into issues I'll pull my tune, I did it a few years back, and look through it some more.

I have the PA Soft and I'm very familiar with all of its functions but I'm not sure it can do what's described in that link, plus I'm not sure how similar procedure would be on my MS41.1 (M52 engine).
I'm very good DIY when it comes to mechanics, electronics are my weaker side.
Anyway, I'll study that info further.
Thank you.
