Software By Mark D'sylva

Just wanted to let you all know that i got my software installed on my car by Mark last week tuesday.The day he put it in we went for a test drive on some back streets i was able to feel a slight difference not much at first due to the fact of limited road.After I left Mark i was just about to get on the high way to test the beast and the i blew a damn tire.So much for any testing that day.Well now everything is a go, tires are fixed CAI is back in and car has 94octane in the tank.HOLY MOTHER OF GOD this damn thing flies and i mean it flies.No top speed govenor in sight.I passed 240 in a blink and she kept pulling.All i can sa guys I am going to get it put on a dyno sometime soon.It feels like i have a new car all together.Damn quick.Thanks Mark for the great service.

how much for the software

Was it a download and does price include additional downloads in future- ie: software updates,etc...?

Did mark do the cai also?

How much for that?

Sounds like I see an e39 540i group buy coming on...


Cheers,

Fern

The time it took in total was about an hour and a half /the first hour was to read the computer/the half was the upload and install.And no mark did not install my CAI a guy at munich motors installed it for me.Remember after he reads your computer he has to send the file away and it comes back the following day.And it all depends where he is getting the file from.

it is effective with a six speed and works really well from what i hear.If it works as nice in mine it should work great in yours.

He left for Octoberfest in California this morning i believe,he sent me a pm telling me that.So you may have to wait a week.You will really love the software.It make a real difference especially when driving on the highway in forth gear. And he did not have any problems reading my car at all.

Hi Guys,

right now I'm sitting on my hotel balcony and reading maxbimmer thanks to a few unencrypted wireless networks!

We haven't done much yet, I'll go to the exhibit hall later and tomorrow I may enter an Autocross at California Speedway.

I'll check back in later.

Mark

I'll answer this question when I get back to Toronto. I had said that I would program the first feq cars at a lower price just to get some of you trying it.
