6 Series
The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Did you check out their web site? Not one product with specs. Everything is in testing. Must be a new company. Consequently I would not touch their products with a 10 foot pole.

Their car is still under development. As I understand through the "grapevine" the problem they are having is the tuning of the vehicle. They use a third party vendor to do the DME programing. I can't remember exactly but I think they use a piggyback unit. The problem that most tuners face is the extreme difficulty in breaking the code for the variable intake timing engines. The older engines took up to 1000 hrs to break code (per Dinan and ESS Tuning) and these are even more difficult. At this point neither Dinan or ESS are spending the research dollars to do this. Keep in mind the easiest part of an S/C install is the hardware. The most difficult is getting the software correct. IMHO

How did Racing Dynamics do it so fast? Why don't they take an RD chip, and 'do a diff' with the stock chip? That should speed up the process.
