Not too sure about the F30 to the F10. But from the E90/92 N55 to the F30/F10 N55 has a whole different ECU. So those dynos that you see on BMS' website for the stage 1 and stage 2 with or without DP are from the E9x N55 and not from any F30 or F10. These are proving a lot harder to get the huge gains that were seen with the N54s and older N55s. Just want to make sure everyone has a clear understanding of this tune before thinking they can gain 80-100hp on an F10.. Sorry OP but you gained 40-50 Max and that is taking into acount your catback exhaust as well.

Wow, I sound like a grouch. I' m really not grumpy, just don't like seeing people misinformed.
And I had the tune on my car for a couple months so I an not just talking out of my ass here.

Bottom line its great for a little kick in power. Way better than stock, but I am on a mission to find something better that gives me the power I miss from my E60.
