Where did you read that there's a procede for the n63?

IIRC, StealthPilot claimed a 11.8. When I have some time later, I'll look for that post.

I'm pretty sure they never worked that out, I think he ended up going with the Velos tune.

I might give them a call to see if they have anything now (or coming soon) anyway...

You know what? Your are right, he ended up Velos Designwerks, not Procede. I must be getting old.

Strike two today. SP only did 11.9 sec. A quick search revealed the fastest stock M5 time is 11.7sec@119mph. Adding a tune (PP) and the M5 drops to 11.4@124mph. That will be a tough number to beat. It might be time for some laughing gas.

I haven't taken it to the track, but in M mode it is certainly punchy with plenty of excess power. I believe the current x5M has reached he end of production and the new x5M is maybe a year away.

Where is the video BB?

dunderhi: LOL honestly BMS seems like a good tune, but the times are SOO confusing. Like you said, we see people like Badblack get low 12s on just the tune, but others only shave 0.1-0.5s off their drag times. I just want mid 12s haha

it was not video worthy Stage 4 ran 12.8 @ 108 he has Dinan Stage 4 software, Dinan Upgraded intercoolers, Dinan CF Intake, M5 Exhaust and M5 wheels.

I ran 12.2 as always

He went ahead and ordered BMS ROFL!

He may have had a faulty tune, because isn't the standard car like 13s?

It would seem something is wrong with that car. I'm not an expert in what these cars should run but, even if the guy couldn't launch the trap should be higher than that for that level of mods based on just on your trap speeds.

well he ran 12.4 a year ago on just stage 2 and then he got stage 4 and all the goodies, it looks like once again stealership failed to install Dinan properly.

As I understand it the Dinan software is flashed along with the latest version of BMW ECU software available at the time it is installed.

Since this doesn't seem to be an isolated incident I'm guessing somewhere along the line a compatibility issue came up between the Dinan software and the BMW software that is causing these problems. My car consistently hits 14.5psi on my boost gauge @WOT, the software hasn't been touched since early last summer.

It would be interesting to know the date the impacted users got their flash done to see if it correlates to a BMW release of software.

good point, it's just sad that people think i am here to bash on them while all i am doing is helping them analyze the issue.
