  1. Best bang for buck

    Posted by Dr. Beemer on 13th Mar 2011

    I own a BMW shop, I have seen, driven and experienced several tunes from all over the US. I feel the tuners at ESS do a superb job of getting every once of power safely out of the S54. Thanks Roman!! Cant wait until I send out my S65 DME for them to work their magic on...

  2. Best M3 software period

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Jan 2011

    I have had several other tuners software in my M3 and this is by far the best.

  3. Flash done on completely stock E46 M3 6MT

    Posted by David F "dafoe" on m3forum.net on 7th Dec 2010

    After reading great reviews from forum members on M3forum.net I decided to go for this flash. The flash filled in the low torgue curve and definately made a nice improvement. The car gets better gas mileage, and has just seemed to come alive. Not like the sport button, but more linear. I would HIGHLY recomend this flash!

  4. By far the best tune you can get for the E46 M3

    Posted by Dan on 1st Nov 2010

    I got the Euro tune for my cat-less setup. Before the tune the car felt sluggish and had some "dead spots", after the tune you immediately can feel that it has a stronger pull and those dead spots are eliminated, but it even get's better after 500-1000 miles. This is the best tune by far you wont regret buying it.

  5. E46 M3 Reflash

    Posted by Kurt on 1st Jan 2010

    The reflash filled in the flat spots to make my powerband smooth,broader and gave me an enjoyable driving feel. Im running after market header and no cats with full upgraded pipes and exhaust.It's a night and day diffrence.
