AA software for e46

Any one here has AA software for e46? Did you have to sent the ECU down south or is there a dealer in Toronto? I'm planning on software but my production date is May 03 so Shark is out of the question. Not quite sure about Upsolute, AA seems to be the best. Any experience?

You shoulda just got Dinan's software when they had a 50% sale up to the end of August. Some local dealers are Engineered Automotive in Richmond Hill and Cross in Oakville. Took about 45 mins in and out; nothing like losing your car for a week while your ECU makes the rounds via courier...

I missed out the Dinan sale but I don't have a Dinan intake Conforti instead, don't think they will sell me the stage 2 software and stage 1 is really point less.

AA & Powerchip seems to be some what custom to the mods. No where near custom Dyno tune but reasonable. Dinan is too much and will have to change intake as well. researching on AA & Powerchip to see which one is better as Engineered Automotive carries both. (at least from thier website)

No, you don't have to have a Dinan intake to get Stage 2. I have an ECIS intake and got the Stage 2 no problems from Engineered Automotive.

I went to AA a few weeks ago, I didnt feel comfy with them at all. I would not deal with them personally.

I called Engineered Automotive and they do seem to know much about AA software also told me the powerchip they will have to sent my ecu down for days... so where can you get it done in an hour?

AA, I am in Miami.
They were dynoing my car, and the whole time I didnt feel comfortable there, they were somewhat rude, and were pushing the SC on me a few times. Plus the dyno was a complete rip off. They advanced my timing and wanted to charge me $400USD for it, and I told them no, and then they were rude to me cause I didnt want to pay them $400USD for 5 minutes work.
