HARTGE Engine Tuning

Ok, it looks like these guys are the first to the table with a tune for the 535i GT. Anyhone heard of them? There is not any cost information on thier website that I can find, so I don't know what they charge but the power numbers look really good on the spec sheet.

Well I've done some poking around and it doesn't look like they are available in the US. I'm not sure if that means they are not distributed here, or there is something about a US spec engine that makes it not work.

Also looks like the cost is around US$4,500. Makes Dinan look like a steal. (If only they would come out with one for the 535i.)

What about the Rentech F07 ECU program? Not as big of a gain but not $4500 either. I thought the Rentech was released already as well (though that is not reflected on their website).

No, I just read that from the forum member MPRESS in THIS thread.

The Renntech website HERE does not show a price. Maybe MPRESS's friend was the loaner test car for Renntech.
