Thanks Terry!!

I've been looking into this and while no one has had issues "yet" (confirmed by Terry at BMS) there is always the "what if" something happens to the engine and they DO dig into looking for these "hidden" tuner codes?
Well, glad that this is not a concern any longer

I guess the BMS Stage 1 would make the 2012+ cars even better. I am guessing the 2011s will not yield the same benefits as the factory tune is similar to the "Comfort" button of the 2012+

So, I had a 2012 535i loaner when my 2011 535i was in for service. The 2012 in Sport mode (not referring to DS) was waaay faster than my 2011. It was more than shift points. It revved faster and pulled much harder. I have driven enough cars to notice the SOTP difference.

Since these tunes enhance what is already there, I figured it would make that 2012 even faster. I really wonder if they did any sort of tune on that loaner I had. I guess another explanation is that I would be a lot more willing to put the pedal to the floor in a loaner .
