I'm calling it like I see it and there are plenty of members that see it the same way. You can not expect to come on this forum and make unheard of claims and expect everyone to just be on board, that's not how it works. This forum is just that a forum for members to post their thoughts even if it goes against your best interest, Chris. No one has been disrespectful here other than you now calling me a child. This definitely defines your level of professionalism. Other than just not liking what I had to say, please show me posts of me "flying off the handle and acting like a child". I have actually posted that I thought Bren Tuning was no better or no worse than other tunes out there and Brens tunes had a good price. Those sound like positives to me. Even in my last post, I stated for the mods than Daves car has the 485rwhp is what you would expect. So what?
I have been a forum member since 2006 when I bought my M5 new. Over the years I have often been the guinea pig for new products out there. I tested them and informed other members about the products so they could make a decision if the product was worth purchasing for their car. I did the same with Bren Tuning. I contacted Bren Tuning about an SMG tune because Bren made claims about faster shift speeds. I did this even though I did not think Bren Tuning could do it. ESS Tuning had told me Bren Tuning could not tune the SMG the way Bren says he can and they did not hesitate to say this. There way never any "flying off the handle" from me, it just went as I expected. I never posted ESS Tuning telling me this before because I was just going to let it go but now that Chris is being a jerk I don't mind stating it.
You're not calling it like you see it, but I will take the high road and not continue to banter with you after this post.
You came to us looking for us to modify your current map for your built car. We told you that is not something that we offer and that it is common practice in this business. Once we said that, you started posting negatively and passive aggressively on this forum and dismissing us as an option and saying we are no different from the competition. All without any first hand experience, just based off of the short email exchange we had with you. You have been our biggest detractor, while many others have been skeptical, they are genuinely interested and curious, you have passive aggressively tried to negate anything we have done and dismiss us as a viable option while dismissing our customers positive findings. Had we decided to modify your current map for you I'm sure I wouldn't even be replying to you right now.
Why ESS says that it can't be modified is beyond me. Maybe they don't know how to do it? I can't tell you to be honest. I've seen the tables and know how to change it, saying that it can't be done is just plain ignorance. Many of these files have been bought from Europe and the tuners that sell them are essentially retailers who do not do any of their own development. When a question like yours pops up they simply dismiss it and say it's impossible.
As for professionalism, we take every customer and every job seriously and treat cars and customers with the utmost respect. You saying I am unprofessional because I called you out is asinine. I've received numerous PM's and emails about you from members stating the exact same thing I have found.
How come ESS say the SMG tuning cant be done??
Bren says they can and Evolve are looking into it and say its possible but need to test it.
Not sure why they can't say it can't be done. It can, has and will. We don't just make stuff up, that gets you no where in this business.
i have the Brens smg tune in mine and gear changes are noticeably quicker...
Thanks for the vouch!
