btw, did you happen to take any pics of the install process? I'm curious on the extra steps needed for Stage 2. I was looking at the burgertune website to see if I can follow the installation steps and I could not find the red fuse the installation refers to?

That red fuse is for the 335i not our car. Ask terry to send you specific install directions

I also sent an email to Terry and he indicated that he will not have a plug-n-play type of installation for Stage 2... that's a bummer. It does look like it's more involved especially if you have to take it out when the car is serviced. He suggested to stick with Stage 1.

How are people switching maps now if not through the steering wheel? Do you have to open up and connect via the pc every time you want to switch? Or old school via the pedal?

300whp and 366wtq

-stage 2
-91/100 octane
-catless downpipe
-axle back exhaust

The tune isn't really proving its worth the $550 if you ask me.

Oh really?
On their website they show wheel hp of 370hp and 434 lb torque.
How was that achieved?

I just can't believe there aren't companies out there coming up with a tune for the F10's. I would think there are a ton of 535 out there for someone to come up with something good. I think what it boils down to is either JB (which I have not been impressed with) or Hartge which also claims to be equal to JB stage 1.

Considering the options out there currently, I stand by my review of this tune. Sure we want more, but we bought N55's - they have always been steps behind in tuning. Until someone does build a competitive alternative, I remain completely happy and impressed with the most powerful/affordable F10 N55 tune available.

so I know you've got Stage 2 installed, how do you like it so far? Would you say it's a noticeable difference compared to Stage 1. I might have already asked this before.
thx,
