I now haves a BT Scan Tool :D

Yes. I said "haves". lol

This thing is awesome.
If no one have played with one yet, I highly recommend picking one up.

I got it for $335.00 (very fitting, I know...) from Mike@N54tuning... Great guy!

The program and set up is as easy as he promised and it does, well, everything!
Anything BMW can scan/see, I can too!

Yay!!

(I even picked up a little black Acer Aspire One to run it off of... Cutest. Laptop. Ever.)

... Bored at Lunch & just wanted to share ... hehe

of course it can't do anything even close to what a GT1 does.

Ahh Mike from N54Tuning......yeah don't be fooled. He isn't the nice guy he pretends to be. Oh yeah nice if you are lining his wallet, but watchout - he likes to smile to your face then steal from your back pocket. Just be careful.

Be careful who you trust for the world is full of wolves in sheeps clothing. It's a cliché for a good reason.

If you're going to bash someone, please provide detailed info on your experience. Thanks.

Fair Enough, I can do that.

He skimmed money off me - thousands of dollars
Took advantage of my good nature
Didn't hold up his end of the bargain in business dealings
Disappeared when it was his turn to take some responsibility
Stole from me (and others) while they're backs were turned
Lied on numerous occasions
Refused to deal honestly with a contract - instead prefered back door under the table dealing

I could probably keep on going for pages, but you get the idea i'm sure. And i'm also sure there are others out there who have seen this side of him.
I've posted this only as a "buyer beware" based on my experiences with him. I feel obligated to do so when I see people praising that he is such a "good guy" because I believe it's just an act in many cases. If you had a good experience with him then great, but i'm just posting about the personal and professional experience I had. Take from it what you will.

Thanks.

hmm more bashing. im guessing you are also jonbim72 from e90post...

i have yet to run into anyone in the GTA who has had a bad experience with Mike. obviously someone somewhere is bound to have had problems with him but all i see are general accusations and judging by your s/n, you're really out to bad-mouth others. why dont you try and resolve you issue by contacting him directly or actually some proof of the said dealings and transactions?

Well it's possible that he's changed. I'm just stating my opinion and my experience dealing with him was not as great as others have had. I can't go into more specifics, this is just a message for others to take care. And he knows about my issues with him, he has been directly contacted about it. I actually don't habitually go bashing people, and if you like him and think he's a great guy then fine. I just happen not to think so, that's all.

If you dont have specifics on what happenned, or how it was dealt with your post seems to be more of a personal thing than just feedback. You stated you can go for pages, it would be best to post your experience in 1 post (you dont need pages) so it is a reference for potential buyers, or in your case a buyers beware.

Mike@n54tuning is one of our suppliers for the N54 market, and has always been supportive and punctual about it as well even when the product wasnt purchased through him. Props to Mike for the great products and service - again, my feedback is on Mikes work ethic, not his personality.
