Best I could do this time was 4.4 sec. With the old stage 1 tune it was 4.3, so probably no real statistical change. Car still seems to pull as well and maybe even better up top, but that is purely subjective so I'm not hanging my hat on that.
Are you in manual or auto when you did your runs...sport mode as well?

DSC disabled does not allow a specific driving mode such as sport. I put tranny in DS with auto shifting.

Does BMS recommend a lower shift point for max acceleration on your motor? On N54 the auto trans shifts close to 7K, but BMS recommends shifting at 6200 for best results. The tune actually hijacks the turn indicators to flash at whatever RPM you choose, to remind you to shift!

Terry just recommended 6200rpm as the best shift point based on the dyno curves. Will have to do some more runs with that and paddle shifting.

Those (M6 GC) Competition Pkg wheels look ugly and aftermarket, my dentist just got a white one exactly like that. I'm glad I didn't tell him, otherwise I'm sure he'd have found an need for a root canal or something...

I'm planning to order one in the next couple of weeks. Is there something I need to know prior to ordering?
